At least he has a good sense of humor over it! Pete Davidson reportedly returned to stand-up and he performed a few jokes addressing his girl’s ex-husband Kanye ‘Ye’ West in his routine. Entertainment tonight reports that the Saturday Night Live star took the stage Thursday night for a sold-out audience for the first night of Netflix Is A Joke: Festival at the Hollywood Bowl.
Pete Davidson jokes about Kanye West in Netflix Stand-Up
Immediately the comedian approached Kim Kardashians ex, Kanye West, as he opened his set. Pete started with jokes that the rapper told Davidson that Davidson had AIDS – which Pete said he believed in because West is a “genius”. The comedian then described how “strange” he felt during his “humiliating” public spit with the father of his girlfriend’s children.
If you missed it, Davidson and West quarreled earlier in text messages that surfaced online, with Pete bragging about being in bed with Kim. West referred to him as “Happened” online prior to the leaked argument and revealed the private beef.
“Her [Kim Kardashian] the boyfriend sent me a text message in which he opposed me and bragged about being in bed with my wife. “
Kanye then took a stab at the 28-year-old in his new music video for “Eazy,” in which he portrayed the comedian’s funeral.
Pete Davidson speaks to Chris Rock Oscar-slap
Kanye was not the only controversial star of the year that Pete shouted out. The comedian also mentions Chris Rock and remembers a basketball game with him and Jon Stewart. “Before life was over,” he added, noting that he and Rock made “terrible things happen” to them afterwards. He was, of course, referring to the now-famous Will Smith Oscars slap.
As for Kanye, he’s probably not that worried about what Pete is up to. A source says the rapper is focused on healing right now.
“Kanye has laid low and focused on healing. He is trying to disconnect from all the drama that happened between him and Kim, says a source. “[Kanye] is focused on taking care of himself, getting healthier and getting away from all the crazy. He cares deeply about his family and children. They are his first priority and he works on himself. ”
