Julia Fox Calls Kanye's Verbal Attacks On Kim Kardashian And Pete Davidson 'Artistic Expression'

Julia Fox Calls Kanye's Verbal Attacks On Kim Kardashian And Pete Davidson 'Artistic Expression'

The Uncut Gems star, who dated the rapper earlier this year, insisted he's 'harmless' and 'wouldn't hurt a fly'.

Julia Fox has defended Kanye West's social media rants amid his feud with Pete Davidson.

The Donda rapper has been criticised and accused of harassment in recent weeks, having shared a number of alarming posts targeting Davidson over his relationship with Kim Kardashian, Kanye's ex-wife with whom he shares four children.

Kanye - who changed his name to Ye - has made several online attacks against the Saturday Night Live comic, including an Instagram post with a dark figure standing over a grave with flowers next to a papier-mâché head similar to Davidson, as well as the video for 'Eazy', which appears to show 'Skete' being beaten by a skinned monkey.

The Uncut Gems star started dating Kanye earlier this year. Alas, their one-month whirlwind romance came to a definitive end in February, solidified by Fox removing all evidence of the artist from her Instagram.

Speaking to TMZ, Fox insisted Kanye is 'harmless' and 'wouldn't hurt a fly'.

"I just think that's his artistic, creative expression. I know that it's aggressive but I think if it came down to it, I don't think Kanye would hurt a fly. That's all I have to say," she said, adding she hadn't reached out to him since their split.

In an earlier statement about their breakup, which she later deleted, she wrote: "I came up y'all lol and not only that but Kanye and I are on good terms! I have love for him but I wasn’t in love w the man Jesus Christ what do u guys think I am 12 years old?"

Kanye is currently locked out of his Instagram for 24 hours, coming specifically after he used a racial slur against The Daily Show host Trevor Noah, in turn violating Meta's hate speech policies.

This came after Noah, who's worked with the SNL star, gave his thoughts on Kanye's feud with Kardashian and Davidson during a recent segment of his show, describing it as 'terrifying to watch' and speaking to a 'wider conversation' about women leaving unhealthy relationships.

Responding to Kanye's post, Noah said: "Clearly some people graduate but we still stupid," as per The Wrap.

"Don’t ever forget, the biggest trick racists ever played on Black people was teaching us to strip each other of our Blackness whenever we disagree. Tricking us into dividing ourselves up into splinters so that we would never unite into a powerful rod."
