    Kanye West doesn't want to be followed.

    The 39-year-old rapper deactivated his Instagram and Twitter accounts Friday afternoon. West, who has frequently scrubbed his social media updates in the past, did not explain why or give his followers a heads up. E! News has reached out to his rep for comment.
