Elon Musk Reconsiders Kanye Support
Say what you want about Kim Kardashian - at least the woman has stood by her man, unlike Mr. Elon Musk.
Independent reports that the Tesla CEO is now reconsidering his support for West’s presidential dreams, 72 hours after he proclaimed his “full support” for the latter’s #2020VISION.
It seems Kanye is getting a dose of his own medicine, losing his first high-profile election backer just a day after he revealed in an interview with Forbes that he no longer supports presidential reelectionist Donald Trump.
Too ‘Intelligent For This BS’
No, Elon is not filing a candidacy for himself.
He’s just never one to invest in something that will not pay huge sums in the end. Apparently, this means he cannot support the presidential bid of someone whose beliefs clash with his own.
After the tech titan enthusiastically threw his weight behind Kanye’s announcement that he might just give Trump and Joe Biden a run for their money, one Tweeter notified Musk about West’s anti-vaccination and anti-abortion stance.
The user literally challenged Elon to rethink his choices.
“C’mon Elon -- you’re way too intelligent for this BS,” John Crowley wrote.
To this, the SpaceX founder replied in a tweet preserved by The Fader: “We may have more differences of opinion than I anticipated.”
Musk quickly deleted his comment, prompting fans to think the unlikely love affair is not yet completely over. For now, the businessman has yet to come up with a statement reinstating his support or clarifying how exactly Kanye’s opinions differ with his own.
Here’s what we know.
Number one: West is suspicious not just of coronavirus vaccines, but of vaccination in general. He thought vaccines are “the mark of the beast.”
“It’s so many of our children that are being vaccinated and paralyzed,” he said. “They want to put chips inside of us, they want to do all kinds of things, to make it where we can’t cross the gates of heaven.”
Number two: For the same religious reasons, Ye just can’t support abortion.
“I am pro-life because I’m following the word of the Bible.”
Musk himself is not a novice to having unpopular opinions. He has drawn flak for saying stay-at-home orders and border closures are incongruent with his constitutional rights. However, it seems Kanye’s words were too much - even for him.
