Elon Musk gives surprising response to Kanye West

Elon Musk has become Kanye West’s latest target when the rapper aimed a post at the wealthiest man on earth.

After a series of disgustingly insensitive tweets, Ye was banned from the social media platform that Elon Musk had taken over.

Instead, the controversial rapper took to Instagram to take a dig at Musk.

Meanwhile, the Tesla CEO responded to Ye on Twitter.


After buying Twitter, Elon Musk restored several suspended accounts, including Kanye West.

He had previously been banned for threatening to do “Death Con 3” against Jews.

It was only a matter of time before the rapper said something controversial again, and sadly, it didn’t take long.

He tweeted a picture of a swastika on the Star of David.

Additionally, Ye appeared in several interviews, spewing anti-Semitic comments.

Although Musk is an ambassador for free speech, he’s had enough.

As a result, Kanye West was once again banned from the social media platform.

After the ban, Kanye West turned to a different social media platform.

This time, he chose Instagram.

There, Ye slammed Elon Musk and wrote:

“Am I the only one who thinks Elon could be half-Chinese? Have you ever seen his pics as a child?”

“Take a Chinese genius and mate them with a South African supermodel and we have an Elon.”

Ye continued, writing:

“I say an Elon because they probably made 10 to 30 Elons and he is the first genetic hybrid that stuck… Well let’s not forget about Obama.”

Kanye West’s whimsical post earned over a million likes as his followers remained loyal to him.

Meanwhile, Elon Musk calmly addressed the post on Twitter, saying:

“I take that as a compliment!”

Although he no longer has access to Twitter, Ye learned of Musk’s response.

Someone likely sent the rapper a screenshot of the response, which Ye later acknowledged in another Instagram post.

Then, finally, he reassured Musk, writing:

“It was meant as a compliment, my friend. Now Obama on the other hand…”
