Elon Musk reacted to the groundbreaking Ye-Alex Jones interview on Saturday, claiming that Ye was too much for the “edgy” Infowars host and that he wanted to punch the rapper in the face for posting a Raelian symbol on Twitter.
“The point at which Alex Jones is, like, telling Kanye to calm down and to please stop, you have to say, ‘okay, Alex Jones is pretty edgy. So, Alex Jones saying he wants Kanye to stop? That’s a big deal,” Musk said on a Twitter Space discussion.

Musk also said he wanted to “punch” Ye in the face after he had posted a Raelian symbol on Twitter which resulted in his suspension from the platform for “incitement to violence.”
“I personally wanted to punch Kanye, so that was definitely inciting me to violence,” Musk said.
In other words, Musk suspended Ye for posting a symbol he claimed “incited violence,” but admitted that he in fact wanted to commit violence against Ye just for posting the image.
Notably, the Raelian symbol signifies infinite space and time, not a Nazi ideology, and Ye’s supplemental phrase of “YE24 Love Everyone #LoveSpeech” in the post suggests he shared the symbol in the spirit of unity.
Meanwhile, while Ye is suspended over a religious unification symbol, videos of the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion performing pagan “blood and soil” rituals to rally for war against Russia are allowed to circulate the platform unabated.
