Elon Musk Contacts Kanye West Over Anti-Semitic Tweet

Elon Musk, the future new owner of Twitter, spoke to Kanye “Ye” West about a tweet sent by the rapper-fashion mogul on Saturday that was widely condemned as anti-Semitic.

With a very personal approach to content moderation, Musk tweeted“I spoke to you today and expressed my concern about his recent tweet, which I believe he took to heart.”

In a tweet Saturday night, West wrote: “I’m a little sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going to die with 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE,” he wrote. “The funny thing is I can’t actually be anti-Semitic because black people are actually Jewish too. You guys have been playing with me and trying to blackmail anyone who is against your agenda.”

An hour after it was posted, the tweet was removed by Twitter for breaking the rules.

West didn’t return to Twitter until Friday after a lengthy hiatus and after restrictions were placed on his Instagram account. Meta attached to The Hollywood Reporter that was West, was locked out of his account after he posted an exchange between him and rapper Diddy that used language deemed anti-Semitic.

In the exchange with Diddy about West’s controversial “White Lives Matter” tees, West wrote: “I didn’t like our convo. I’m selling these t-shirts. No one can come between me and my money”.

When Diddy asked him to stop selling the T-shirts, West replied, “I’m using you as an example to show the Jewish people that you should call me that no one can threaten or influence me.”

The Instagram post has since been removed.

On his return to Twitter on Friday, West exclaimed Meta’s Mark Zuckerberg, tweeting, “How you gone, kick me off Instagram.” He was quickly welcomed back to Twitter by Elon Musk, who confirmed his plans to buy Twitter. “Welcome back to Twitter, my friend,” Musk replied to West’s tweet about Zuckerberg.
