Rapper Chuck D of Public Enemy wants Elon Musk to ban the use of the n-word on Twitter.
Chuck went on Twitter and wrote to Musk, “yo @elonmusk the next thing Twitter should do is ban the N-word, n***a, and n****r, 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, and FB, get it outta here. Suspend em. It’s as bad as that symbol.”
He went on to say, “It ain’t like kicking somebody’s tail in a fight. It’s all words and images here… keyboard s***… 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.”
However, people are torn after the rapper’s request. One user responded and said, “I don’t say it but I think this would hurt black Twitter most.”
Another one wrote, “Clearly you are an opp. The only ppl who use that word are Black ppl. Everyone else is afraid to use it. So the only accounts that would get suspended will be Blk ppl. You tried it. No one is falling for that…”
