Kanye West Wants Everyone to Leave Elon Musk Alone
Kanye West is taking a very different approach to controversial billionaire capitalist Elon Musk than, say, fellow rapper Azealia Banks.
The performer pulled a less-entertaining Chris Crocker earlier in the week when he literally told a group of students to "leave [Elon Musk] alone," but using, well, stronger language.
During an impromptu appearance at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit on Tuesday (October 2), West launched into a brief, spontaneous rant defending the Tesla founder amid his trouble with the SEC—after first climbing on top of a classroom table, naturally.
"Elon Musk, I don't give a f--- who's over at his house... Leave that man the f--- alone! Leave that man the f--- alone," West can be heard exclaiming in a video shared on Twitter.
The outburst is just the latest in a string of controversial behaviors from West, who most recently made headlines for vocalizing his support of MAGA and Donald Trump, as well as his call to dismantle the 13th Amendment.
On Thursday (October 4), Musk stepped down as Tesla's chairman after agreeing to pay a reported $20 million for securities fraud.
