Kanye West has found another embattled billionaire to champion.
Ye took a break from his role as Donald Trump's most active cheerleader to trumpet for Elon Musk. And similar to his unofficial campaigning for POTUS the husband of Kim Kardashian went on the defense for the Tesla founder.
The rapper made an impromptu appearance at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit Tuesday, and ended up climbing onto the tables for a spontaneous speech referencing the billionaire's trouble with the SEC after he made a controversial tweet over the summer.
"Elon Musk," Kanye began in a video captured on Twitter. "I don't give a f--k who's over at his house." The reference was clearly to Azealia Banks who claimed she witnessed the SpaceX entrepreneur doing drugs at his home during the time of his poorly thought-out tweet.
"Leave that man the f--k alone," Kanye continued. "Leave that man the f--k alone!"
Musk, who just reached a settlement with the Securities and Exchange Commission for the tweet that constituted securities fraud, has been maligned in the press for a series of bizarre incidents. On Thursday he agreed to not only pay tens of millions for the wrongdoing but has also stepped down as Tesla's chairman.
The tweet that brought all the trouble claimed Tesla was going private.
Am considering taking Tesla private at $420. Funding secured.
Kanye recently made headlines for demanding that the 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery, be dismantled in a tweet of his own. He has also been a vocal supporter of Donald Trump's presidency, wearing a MAGA hat to media appearances.
