Mark Zuckerberg has reportedly issued a subtle response to Kanye West’s plea for money.
Over the weekend the rapper claimed he was $53 million in debt and asked the Facebook CEO for $1 billion.
In a series of tweets, he wrote: “Mark Zuckerberg invest 1 billion dollars into Kanye West ideas …after realizing he is the greatest living artist and greatest artist of all time.
“Mark Zuckerberg I know it’s your bday but can you please call me by 2mrw… You love hip hop, you love my art… I am your favorite artist but you watch me barely breathe and still play my album in your house … World, please tweet, FaceTime, Facebook, instagram, whatever you gotta do to get Mark to support me…(sic)”
Zuckerberg didn’t respond with a statement, but he did appear to like a Facebook user’s status about Kanye’s ambitious bid.
In a now-deleted post by a former Facebook software engineer named Steven Grim, he wrote: “Dear Kanye West: If you’re going to ask the CEO of Facebook for a billion dollars, maybe don’t do it on Twitter.”
