Kanye West has taken aim at Elon Musk and questioned the tech billionaire's heritage.
He went on to wonder if the tech mogul is 'half Chinese' due to his incredible level of intelligence.
"Am I the only one who thinks Elon could be half Chinese? Have you ever seen his pics as a child? Take a Chinese genius and mate them with a South African supermodel and we have an Elon, " the rapper wrote.
"I say ‘an Elon’ because they probably made 10 to 30 Elons and he is the first genetic hybrid that stuck. Well, let's not forget about Obama."
The comparison, dripping with racist undertones, will now join the long list of other bizarre rants and musings from the disgraced musician.
Ye's comments come days after Musk suspended his Twitter account for posting an image was utterly shocking.
But the piece de resistance was the swastika inside the Jewish Star of David.
It didn't take long for Elon Musk to suspend Ye's account and told him off for going too far.
Musk later tweeted he'd 'tried [his] best' with Kanye and that the rapper had been banned because he 'violated our rule against incitement to violence'.
He said: "I personally wanted to punch Kanye, so that was definitely inciting me to violence. That's not cool.
"At some point you have to say what is incitement to violence because it is against the law in the US. Posting swastikas in what obviously is not a good way is an incitement to violence."
The post attracted loads of comments, with many begging the Donda rapper to stop ruining his public image and legacy.
One user said: "For a 'smart’ guy, you sure are being a dum-dum, Kanye. If your goal is to humiliate yourself and your family - you are doing quite well... they will live in humiliation of their father - who was once the richest black man in history, only to burn his fortune and himself down with ignorance, idiocy, racism, anti-semitism, and stupidity."
Another added: "You’re still here? It’s over. Go home."
For the record, Musk has British and Pennsylvania Dutch ancestry.
