Musk and West have spoken positively of each other in the past.
Back in 2015, Musk penned a blurb about West when Time Magazine named him a “Person of the Year.”
“Kanye’s belief in himself and his incredible tenacity — he performed his first single with his jaw wired shut — got him to where he is today,” Musk wrote. “And he fought for his place in the cultural pantheon with a purpose.”
And West has returned the favor, climbing onto a table during an appearance at Detroit’s College for Creative Studies and pleading with students to leave Musk “the fuck alone.”
