A cocky Elon Musk hinted Kanye West’s appalling antisemitism was resolved after they had a talk — but “Weekend Update” anchor Colin Jost isn’t buying it.

West, who legally changed his name to Ye last year, was locked out of his Twitter account a week ago after his hateful tweet threatening to go “death con 3” on Jews.

Musk noted in a much-derided tweet on Monday: “Talked to ye today & expressed my concerns about his recent tweet, which I think he took to heart.”

“Well, that settles it,” Jost deadpanned on the “Saturday Night Live” news segment. “If there’s one thing we all trust Elon with, it’s successfully reading another human being’s emotional cues.”

Co-anchor Michael Che noted that West’s comments had been condemned by the Black Jewish Entertainment Alliance, then quipped: “Just say Lenny Kravitz.”
