American rapper Kanye West has been barred from performing at the Grammy Awards.
According to The Blast, the decision to prevent the 44-year-old rapper from taking the stage at the awards show was made due to his "concerning online behaviour."
The outlet reported that West's latest online antics involving Trevor Noah, who is hosting this year's show on April 3, were a factor in the decision-making process.

The alleged comment was made after the Daily Show host weighed in on West's split from Kim Kardashian, who was recently declared legally single.
A meta spokesperson said that the rapper’s recent posts violated the company’s policies on hate speech and bullying and harassment.
The spokesperson also noted that if the 44-year-old continues to violate the policies, the company will take additional steps.

In true Ye style, the rapper shared snaps of Noah and wrote:
"All in together now… Koon baya my lord koon baya Koon baya my lord Koon baya Oooo’ lord Koon baya [sic],” IOL reports.
According to The South African, Noah then hopped into the comments section of Kanye's now-deleted post with a lengthy response.
He explained how Ye has been an inspiration to him but he also cautioned him against fighting his family.
