Kanye West continues to give fans complete whiplash with his wild behavior on social media and his repeated attacks on both Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson.
After West unleashed a torrent of vitriol towards a random assortment of celebrities associated with Davidson last weekend, as well as sharing screenshots of private texts in which Kim allegedly asked him to stop targeting Pete, fans thought things may have taken a sudden turn when Davidson reactivated his Instagram on Wednesday. Among his early followers was none other than Ye himself.
This was followed by a post noting that the rapper has “learned that using all caps makes people feel like I’m screaming at them” and is “working on [his] communication.”
“I know sharing screenshots was jarring and came off as harassing Kim,” he continued. “I take accountability. I’m still learning in real-time. I don’t have all the answers. To be a good leader is to be a good listener.”
The post itself could have been picked apart by the wording — “came off as harassing Kim” rather than admitting that’s what he was doing, and a lack of apology in general — but it ultimately wouldn’t have mattered.
This morning, West edited the post specifically to remove mentions of harassing his ex.
He also began taking shots at Davidson again, sharing a screenshot from an old Saturday Night Live clip in which Pete wore a red “Make Kanye 2006 Again” hat.
“HI SKETE YOU GOT ANYMORE MENTAL HEALTH JOKES FOR ME?” he captioned it, returning to his all caps ways.
Another post saw Kanye taking a video of an old SNL skit as it played on his phone.
In it, Davidson suggested West shouldn’t be ashamed of taking medication for his mental illness — something Davidson has frequently spoken out about having an impact on his own life as well.
But West took offense at the clip, writing, “This boy thought he could get away with performing this sketch for the team that wrote this for him This is not harassment This is payback.”
Yet another post featuring an image of Davidson took aim at “the liberals” who Kanye says have tried to discredit him for 20 years, while also urging people to “do something positive.”
“Let’s see if page 6 and TMZ print that I said that they are Godless,” he rambled.
He ended his latest social media spree, for now, with an image of Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels, writing only, “Next up.”
