Hip Hop Legend Chuck D asked Twitter CEO Elon Musk to ban the n-word on the platform.
“Yo @elonmusk the next thing twitter should do is ban the N Word the Nga & nier by anyone that uses it here. Then we know things are pointing in an 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 tweeted.
Chuck D followed up with tweet, “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 backbroke over their ‘pet’ getting smashed on here.”
Elon says he believes in free speech and will likely not ban the racial slur. Elon has not responded to Chuck D’s request.
