Ugh, here we go again. Just when you thought it was surely now over, the zealot formerly known as Kanye West has risen from anti-semitic ashes to spout some more nonsense. It turns out the car crash the world can’t look away from is less of a car crash, and more of a protracted, exploitative and increasingly dangerous tumble down a mountain.
Having last week been banned from Twitter by Elon Musk personally, after sharing an image of a swastika inside the Star of David and earlier praising Hitler and nazis on far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ show InfoWars, Ye’s now had his account reinstated on Instagram.
His first port of call was to question the human mortality and ethnicity of the Twitter and Tesla CEO.
‘AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO THINKS ELON COULD BE HALF CHINESE?’ Ye wrote.
‘TAKE A CHINESE GENIUS AND MIX IT WITH A SOUTH AFRICAN SUPERMODEL
‘AND WE HAVE AN ELON.’ Ye hypothesised that between 10 and 30 Elons were created. Elon Musk (our Elon) was the ‘first genetic hybrid’ that stuck.
Lest, of course, we forget about Obama.
The former president and presumed genetic hybrid was the next person to be caught in Ye’s rather erratic crosshairs. Ye seemed to say ‘Obama’ was a curse word, before explaining he’s looking for an alternative way of referring to the 44th and first African-American leader of the United States. After his combination of a net and a bottle of milk to refer to Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu, hopes for a witty Obama pun seem unlikely.
The post was captioned: “On Jay Zs birthday Future president of the United States Ye uses Mark Zuckerberg’s platform to incite a mass investigation of Elon Musk’s childhood photos in the midst of Balenciagagate I call this The theory of everything Problem solved Praise God”
Responding to the news, Elon Musk said he took the half-Chinese genetic hybrid comment “as a compliment”. Continuing the back and forth, Ye confirmed: “It was meant as a compliment my friend.”
“Now Obama on the other hand…”
And with that he went quiet. For now. Sigh.
