Parler CEO talks Kanye West acquisition, says conservative app ‘needs Ye in many ways’
Parler CEO George Farmer says social app ‘needs Ye in many ways’
Parlement Technologies CEO George Farmer confirms Ye West’s acquisition, telling ‘Mornings with Maria’ that the rapper and fashion mogul’s ban from other social media platforms inspired the sale.
In a FOX Business exclusive interview Monday, Parlement Technologies CEO George Farmer – who runs the parent company of free-speech platform Parler – confirmed rapper and fashion mogul Ye West, formerly known as Kanye, will acquire the company.
"Parler needs Ye in many ways, because Parler needs this brand to expand," Farmer told FOX Business’ "Mornings with Maria." "And I think Ye is very interested in expanding his social media presence."
According to the current CEO, West’s suspension from social sites including Instagram and Twitter is what motivated conversations about the acquisition.
"Free speech is something that we all must strive towards. He's very excited about this," Farmer told host Maria Bartiromo. "The deal came together in short order, and we are very excited about the potential that he can bring to the platform in terms of the growth profile of the marketing operation of this platform, which he's going to bring to it."
