Comedian Pete Davidson Calls Kanye West a Jackass for ‘Saturday Night Live’ Appearance
Kanye West's pro-President Donald Trump rant continues to prompt ill reactions from celebrities. The latest one comes from comedian Pete Davidson, who had to endure said rant during 'Ye's appearance on Saturday Night Live last week (Sept. 29).
In a bit on the most recent episode of SNL on Oct. 6, Davidson refused to cut 'Ye any slack for his recent tirade. "So speaking strictly for myself, what Kanye said after he went off the air last week was one of the worst, like, most awkward things I've ever seen here and I've seen Chevy Chase speak to an intern," he began as the audience laughed and cheered.
Pete then presented clips of himself hiding, then exiting the stage as 'Ye continued on with his speech.
"I wish I bullied you," he continued. "I wish I would've suggested that. You know, it might upset some people, like your wife or every Black person ever." This part is in response to 'Ye's claim that people behind-the-scenes suggested he not wear his MAGA hat on stage.
Peter later added that "being mentally ill is not an excuse to act like a jackass."
Lil Bibby is the most recent rapper to call out Mr. West for his actions. In a tweet posted on Oct. 5, the Chicago native wrote" "Make Kanye black again." The tweet has garnered over 44,000 retweets thus far.
Now that Kanye has deactivated all of his social media accounts again, we may not hear what he has to say about Pete's opinions. The rapper disappeared from Twitter and Instagram on Saturday with no explanation as to why.
