Here we go: terrible people acting terribly…
Kanye West is currently in a weird one-sided feud with Pete Davidson of SNL fame. Why? I guess because Davidson is dating West’s ex-wife, Kim Kardashian. In case you needed another reason to find Kanye West deplorable, here it is! He’s possessive of women!
West has abused Pete via Instagram over the last few weeks in posts that disparage the comedian and seem to seek to at best make Kim Kardashian incredibly uncomfortable.
I’m gonna pause here and note that the correct response to a man doing this to his ex is YIKES, REPORT, RUN.
Both Davidson and Kardashian have been silent during West’s ongoing harassment. Fans were concerned last Wednesday after Davidson rejoined Instagram after having left it three years ago for his mental health.
His account gained millions of followers quickly and people began to wonder if he had joined in order to combat West’s ongoing harassment.
When he posted, he did nothing but welcome fans and followers and share a clip of some behind-the-scenes footage from The Home, which he’s currently shooting.
“They’re letting me add my own dialogue to The Home,” he wrote for the clip and included the hashtags: “#welcometomyinstagram” and “#thisisthetypeofstuffyoucanbeexpecting.”
Kanye West Fans immediately flooded the post and told Davidson to “find God” and called him “Skete,” West’s weird, unfriendly nickname for Davidson.
Later, fans realized that Davidson’s Instagram disappeared, which led people to wonder if the abusive comments caused him to leave the platform again.
West chose this moment to gloat.
“Tell your mother I changed your name for life,” West said in reference to the Skete nickname.
Sources, however, say that West has nothing to do with Davidson’s decision to leave Instagram.
“Pete deleted his IG because immediately after his first post he started receiving a flood of messages, both positive and negative, reminding him why he didn’t want social media to begin with,” said a source close to Davidson to Page Six.
“[Pete] is in the middle of several big film projects and wants to continue to stay very focused on his work and the positive things happening in his life. Kanye didn’t drive Pete off social media,” concluded the same source.
West also took aim at Davidson in a set of new lyrics premiered at Donda 2 in Miami. A track called “Security” seems to fire at someone who West thinks is in the way of himself and his children.
