When rapper Kanye West suggested that Elon Musk might be “half Chinese” and a “genetic hybrid,” the reaction was more subdued. “I take that as a compliment!” West, whose Twitter account was once again suspended last week, made some comments that Musk tweeted about this morning.
I take that as a compliment!

After Musk took over the business, the rapper’s Twitter account was reactivated just two months ago. His anti-Semitic remarks have already led to a suspension, but the most recent action was taken because he had broken the platform’s guidelines.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the site suspended him last Friday after it removed his post that included a Swastika sign used by the Nazis.
West responded by writing on Instagram that Elon Musk was likely created in tens and was the “first genetic hybrid that stuck.”
“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 South African supermodel and we have an Elon,” said West, who had changed his name to Ye.
“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,” he added.
Musk replied to a user who requested that West be “fixed,” stating that he made every effort to do so.
I tried my best. Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended.
