Elon Musk admits he was triggered enough by Ye West’s insults to want to introduce the rapper to his hands.
The billionaire business baron and new owner of Twitter said he wanted to punch the College Dropout architect for using the infamous Nazi swastika during one of his latest bizarre Twitter posts. Yeezy also used social media to ask if Musk is a hybrid or “half-Chinese.”
West has been maligned and vilified ceaselessly for the past several months for going off on nonsensical antisemitic tirades on social media. Musk is just the latest to be insulted by the embattled rapper who changed his name legally to “Ye.”
Musk addressed the issue of hate speech on Twitter. Musk, however, failed to discuss whether he will answer Chuck D’s personal plea to ban the use of the N-word on Twitter. Reportedly, the usage of the racial epithet has skyrocketed since Musk took over.
“How are you going to balance the level to which we speak about the freedom of expression on Twitter?” Musk was asked in Twitter Spaces.
“I personally wanted to punch Kanye, so that was definitely inciting me to violence. That’s not cool,” Musk said. “That was my decision, because at a certain point, you have to say, what is incitement to violence? Because that is against the law in the US. You can’t just form a ‘let’s go murder someone’ club.”
“I think posting swastikas in what is obviously not a good way is incitement to violence,” Musk added.

Musk’s response was the result of being gaslit and triggered by Yeezy with this most incendiary of returns to Instagram where he questions the authenticity of Musk’s ethnicity.
“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 SUPER MODEL
AND WE HAVE AN ELON,” Kanye began.

In another post to his 18 million followers, Ye tried to say that he was complimenting Musk with the “half-Chinese” question.
