Kanye West Releases Graphic New Music Video As 'Skete' Gets Attacked By Skinned Monkey

Kanye West Releases Graphic New Music Video As 'Skete' Gets Attacked By Skinned Monkey

Kanye West's new music video for his song 'Eazy' has received backlash for showing 'Skete' attacked by a skinned monkey.

Kanye West and The Game released a second video for their song Eazy and it seems to show 'Skete' being beaten by a skinned monkey.

The song comes from West's most recent album Donda 2 and in the latest music video, a figure that looks like Pete Davidson, wearing a jumper with the word 'Skete' on it, is attacked by the skinned monkey also featured on the cover art.

'Skete' is the name West often uses to refer to Davidson, who is rumoured to be dating his ex-wife Kim Kardashian.

In the animated clip, as West sings the lyrics 'God saved me from that crash / Just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s ass', the monkey jumps on top of 'Skete' and beats him.

This isn't the first time West's music videos have implied violence against a Davidson lookalike, with his first music video for the song covering a similar theme.


The video, released on March 2, shows a claymation of West kidnapping and burying Davidson, leaving his head poking out of the ground.

The character then sprinkles seeds over the Davidson lookalike's head and roses grow.

Since the first music video's release there has been widespread criticism from fans.

One user wrote: 'That #Kanye #Eazy video is disturbing. This is emotional abuse and will end very badly for this family. I felt terrified, can’t imagine how Kim feels. He’s terrorizing her as punishment and I hope people will stop excusing this as art'.

Another added: 'None of this is funny, it's disgusting and dangerous. Pete and Kim should both file restraining orders'.

West has also taken to social media to post about Davidson and Kardashian, however, after the KUWTK star called his behaviour 'scary', he apologised for some social media posts and said he would 'take accountability'.

However, the rapper has since continued to comment on Davidson and Kardashian's relationship, as per the Independent.

Kardashian was granted single status by a judge earlier this month, as she continues to pursue her divorce from West.

She is now able to change her name back from Kardashian-West to Kardashian, as per NME.

The next hearing for the case is due on August 5. Further details regarding the case are yet to be confirmed.
