“I’m a little sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m gonna die a fuck 3 On The JEWS,” West wrote Saturday night. “Funny thing is, I can’t be anti-Semitic because black people are actually Jewish too. You played with me and tried to test anyone who opposes your agenda.”

He received a warm reception on Twitter from possible future company owner Elon Musk, who responded to West’s post about Zuckerberg with the message, “Welcome to Twitter, my friend!”

West’s recent comments have been condemned by Jewish advocacy groups, including the American Jewish Committee, which lambasted him for making “incoherent rants laden with racist and anti-Semitic overtones” in a video Friday.
