Pete Davidson apparently asked his saturday night live colleagues and “other comedians” to avoid making jokes about Kanye West.
On Sunday (March 13), several screenshots of Davidson and West’s exchanges of messages were posted on SNL Instagram account of writer Dave Sirus, in a since-deleted post.
In the messages, Davidson apparently told West, who legally changed his name to Ye last year, that he was “done of being quiet” over the rapper’s repeated outbursts at him and his girlfriend Kim Kardashian, West’s ex-wife.
According to the screenshots, 28-year-old Davidson told Ye that his actions “are so f*cking and embarrassing.” He also allegedly claimed that she had prevented SNL “to talk about or make fun of” West, “what they’ve wanted to do for months.”
“I’ve stopped stand-up comedians from doing things about you because I don’t want the father of my daughters’ children to look bad,” she apparently told West.
“I watch your back even though you treat me like shit because I want everything to be okay.”
During the exchange of text messages, Davidson allegedly offered Ye to meet him “man to man” and talk things over. However, West seemed to react by asking the Adolescence in a big way star to come meet him at his Sunday service instead, in public.
“I’m not here for the photos and the press,” Davidson seemed to reply. “Which is obviously all you care about.”
Sirus appeared to leak Davison’s chat with Ye shortly after West shared a series of posts about custody of his children with Kardashian, which have also now been deleted.
the independent has contacted representatives for Ye and Davidson for comment.
West has made a number of public comments about Davidson, whom he calls “Skete,” and also featured an image of him in his recent music videos for “Eazy.”
