Comedian Pete Davidson is “apparently respecting the process” amid ongoing turmoil over Kim Kardashian and rapper Kanye West’s divorce, a source tells US Weekly.
The comedian hasn’t responded to any of West’s internet attacks, including the new music video in which West dissed Davidson using a cartoon.
According to the source, while stories have indicated that Davidson poked fun at West’s new music video, his real response is more complex. The source said: “Pete tries to pretend he finds Kanye’s pranks hilarious, but no one really believes him.” The Saturday Night Live star reportedly tried to “downplay the impact” of the video.
The source added, “He actually feels sorry for the guy, but at the same time he just wishes we could leave him alone.”
Kanye had uploaded a series of posts criticizing Davidson on his Instagram before posting the music video, which depicted a cartoon looking like Davidson being dragged and buried alive in the video. While Davidson temporarily returned to Instagram during the same period, the comedian has since left social media without uploading a single photo to his account.
Kim Kardashian reacted to West’s online assaults by claiming to have posted a text Kardashian gave her about her tweets against Davidson, telling her they could be a ‘security breach’ for the Saturday Night actor Live. West then implored his followers not to do anything if they saw Davidson on the move.
