Pete Davidson Targeted By Kanye West Yet Again In Latest Instagram Post

Pete Davidson Targeted By Kanye West Yet Again In Latest Instagram Post

Kanye West has been targeting Pete Davidson on social media since the comedian was first linked to Kim Kardashian.

Kanye West has continued what can only be described as a campaign of online harassment against Pete Davidson, this time accusing him of making light of his mental health issues.

In a new Instagram post Kanye shared a screenshot of Davidson wearing a red 'MAGA' style hat reading 'Make Kanye 2006 Again,' with the caption 'HI SKETE YOU GOT ANYMORE MENTAL HEALTH JOKES FOR ME?'

The post is in reference to a 2018 episode of SNL in which Davidson appeared during Weekend Update to discuss Kanye's appearance on the show the previous week, where the rapper had launched into an unaired pro-Trump speech in front of the cast and audience.

During the segment Davidson spoke about Kanye's bipolar disorder diagnosis and how it is often used to justify his more controversial actions, saying 'being mentally ill is not an excuse to act like a jack***, Okay?'

Davidson, who has been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder and has been open about his own mental health struggles, also questioned Kanye's public comments about choosing not to take his medication in order to be the 'real me', telling the rapper '[there's] no shame in the medicine game. I’m on them. It’s great. Take them. There’s nothing wrong with taking [medicine].'

The clip has been doing the rounds in recent days amid Kanye's ongoing attacks on Davidson, and it looks like it's now come to the rapper's attention.

In a follow up post Kanye shared a video that he appeared to have filmed of another person's phone playing the clip in question, with the caption, 'This boy thought he could get away with performing this sketch for the team that wrote this for him,' adding, 'This is not harassment This is payback.'

Kanye has been targeting Davidson on social media and in comments made during interviews since the comedian was first linked to Kim Kardashian several months ago.

A few days ago, the rapper posted texts that appeared to have been sent to him by his ex-wife asking him to stop his harassment, with Kardashian allegedly telling him 'U are creating a scary and dangerous environment and someone will hurt Pete and this will all be your fault.'

In response, Kanye appeared to agree to tone down his rhetoric, but has since continued to attack both Davidson and Kardashian in his Instagram posts, the majority of which have since been deleted.

Davidson has not publicly commented on the situation, while Kardashian earlier this month issued a statement criticising her estranged husband's 'constant need for attacking me' and his 'obsession with trying to control and manipulate our situation so negatively and publicly'.
