About

Kanye West Holding Notepad refers to an image of rapper Kanye West holding up a yellow pad of paper, also known as a legal pad, with the words "my account is not hacked" and the date underneath, posted by West to his Instagram on February 13th, 2022, in the midst of a posting spree to prove he hasn't been hacked on social media. The image went viral over the following days as an exploitable sign-holding format as people edited the notepad to share a new, comedic message or drawing as if made by Kanye himself.

Origin

In February 2022, Kanye West began making posts on his Instagram expressing concerns about Pete Davidson dating his ex-wife Kim Kardashian, as well as his ongoing divorce. The frequency of the posts coming from West, who is usually quiet on social media, sparked concerns from some that he was hacked.

On February 13th, 2022, Kanye West posted two images of himself holding up a yellow notepad with the text "my account is not hacked 2 13 22" written on it to Instagram,[1] one without a mask and one wearing a mask and holding his arm up in the air (shown below, left and right, post caption below images). West deleted the post later on. The post's caption calls out SNL actor Michael Che, who responded on Instagram[2] through numerous notepad pages that day, gaining over 291,000 likes in a day.
