Kanye posted a screenshot of an article with the headline, “Pete Davidson Enrages Audience With Jokes About Having Sex With A Baby,” presenting it as further evidence the 28-year-old shouldn’t be allowed near his and Kim Kardashian’s four young children.
Ye also claimed Davidson had a “mental breakdown” after he “ran him off the internet.” The actor/comedian returned to Instagram last month but deleted his account just a few days later, with Kanye taking credit for driving him off the app.
“Yet another reason why SKETE gotta stay away from my children,” Kanye wrote in his Instagram caption. “Oh and nobody noticed that he ain’t show up to SNL Because Mr. I can help you with meds had a mental breakdown after we ran him off the internet SKETE you not built for this I already blacked the Super Bowl out on you Apologize to your family for being in your family.”
Pete Davidson’s “sex with a baby joke” stems from a 2019 stand-up comedy set at The Bell House in Brooklyn, New York, where he reportedly told a story about the time he was babysitting a friend’s child and the baby, who was teething, began sucking on his finger and it felt “good.”
“I don’t want to fuck this baby, but he’s asking for it,” Davidson joked, adding that he doesn’t want to have sex with any babies, but if he did, he would choose that one.
Curiously, the article that Kanye shared on his Instagram was published on Breitbart, the controversial far-right news publication that has been accused of peddling racist, misogynistic and conspiracy theorist content.
The website was a vocal supporter of Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign under the helm of controversial former White House strategist Steve Bannon, who served as Breitbart’s executive chairman until his dismissal in 2018.
In a second Instagram post made on Wednesday morning, Kanye West continued his attack on Pete Davidson by voicing his concerns that “SKETE will get my kids mom hooked on drugs. He’s in rehab every 2 months.”
The The King of Staten Island star has been open about his history of drug use and mental health struggles, revealing in 2017 that he was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder.
“Yo it’s Skete,” he messaged Kanye. “Can you please take a second and calm down? … Kim is literally the best mother I’ve ever met. What she does for those kids is amazing and you are so fucking lucky that she’s your kids’ mom. I’ve decided I’m not going to let you treat us this way anymore and I’m done being quiet. Grow the fuck up.”
After Kanye replied, “Oh you using profanity? Where are you right now,” Davidson wrote back, “In bed with your wife,” accompanied by a photo of him throwing up a peace sign to the camera while laying in bed.
Kanye West‘s erratic behavior on social media doesn’t appear to be endearing him to his ex-wife, though.
“I very much want to be divorced,” Kim Kardashian said in court documents that surfaced last month. “Kanye has been putting a lot of misinformation regarding our private matters and co-parenting on social media which has created emotional distress.”
She added, “While I wish our marriage would have succeeded, I have come to the realization that there is no way to repair our marriage. Kanye does not agree but at least it appears that he has come to the realization that I want to end our marriage, even if he does not.”
