Chuck D of Public Enemy fame had a poignant message for Twitter’s new CEO, Elon Musk.
On December 2, Chuck D, born Carlton Douglas Ridenhour, wrote to Musk on the social media platform.
“Yo @elonmusk the next thing Twitter should do is ban the N Word the N**ga & ni**er, by anyone that uses it here. Then, we know things are pointing in a equalized direction. Then, you can convince Zuck to do the same at IG FB get it outta here. Suspend em. It’s as bad as that symbol.”
He also explained that he wanted to eliminate the n-word only on social media.
“It ain’t like kicking somebody’s tail in a fight. It’s all words and images here .. keyboard sht … so I’m not talking about anywhere else except social media right now because it can be done .. there gonna be a lotta people back broke over their ‘pet’ getting smashed on here..”
The request came in light of Kanye’s recent ban– again – on Twitter for posting a swastika.
Musk addressed the ban in a tweet.
“I tried my best. Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended.”
Black Twitter was split on Chuck D’s petition.
Others applauded the veteran rapper and activist’s request.
