Rapper and businessman Kanye West believes that Elon Musk’s
genes are the product of a larger attempt at genetic
engineering, according to a social media post.
“Take a Chinese genius and mate them with a South African
super model. And you have an Elon,” West (also known as
‘Ye’) said in all caps in a post on Instagram on Sunday.
The people behind Musk’s genome “probably made 10 to 30
Elon’s and he is the first genetic hybrid that stuck,” he

Musk’s mother Maye is a model of Canadian descent, while his
father Errol is a white South African. The entrepreneur
himself laughed off West’s suggestion and said he took it as
a compliment. West stated it was intended as one.
The two had a falling out last week, after West posted a
symbol on Twitter combining the Star of David with a

The picture bore a strong resemblance to a symbol used by
the Raelian Movement, a quasi-religious organization that
rejects the existence of the divine and claims that humanity

Human cloning is perceived by adherents as a path towards
immortality for the worthy.
In both of his posts, West expressed disdain for former US
President Barack Obama, against whom he holds a long-running
grudge. Last week, during an interview that the rapper gave
to conspiratorial talk show host Alex Jones, he declared
that Obama was “not the first black president, he was
another Jewish president.”
In October, West suffered a major downfall in the public eye
after posting a tweet about going “death con 3 on Jewish
people.” Many people accused him of anti-Semitism and
subjected him to ostracism. He was consequently banned from
Twitter, but Musk purchased the platform the same month and
reinstated West alongside several other users in November.
West has previously spoken publicly about battling mental
health issues and being diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
