Kanye West has caused a public spat with Pete Davidson blasting the comedian for a skit he performed on Saturday Night Live in 2018.

In the SNL episode Davidson discussed Kanye’s mental health conditions.

The comic is now dating Kayne’s ex-wife Kim Kardashian, which spurred the rapper to share a series of posts linked to Davidson’s relationship.

Kanye has now tried to humiliate the comedian, which he refers to as Skete, on Instagram by posting a picture of Pete wearing a red hat with the message ‘Make Kanye 2006 Again’ with the caption ‘HI SKETE YOU GOT ANYMORE MENTAL HEALTH JOKES FOR ME?’

In another post Davidson can be heard saying: ‘Kanye, I know you’re like, “Yo this is the real me, I’m off the meds”. Take ‘em. No shame in the medicine game, I’m on ‘em. It’s great. Take ‘em, there’s nothing wrong with taking them.

‘If I ever got on a plane and the pilot said, “I just want all of you to know this is the real me flying”, I’d jump out.

‘Being mentally ill is not an excuse to act like a jackass.’

Kanye captioned the post: ‘This boy thought he could get away with performing this sketch for the team that wrote this for him. This is not harassment This is payback.’

On a separate upload Kanye said:  ‘Someone always telling you you’re crazy can drive someone crazy. That’s the gaslighting That’s the harassment The liberals have tried to discredit me for 20 years.’

Hitting back at the press he said: ‘They are Godless God got me and God got our family Jesus has already one the victory And for everyone praying for me and my family,’ he continued. ‘Faith without works is dead Do something positive Say something publicly and positively while you still can. 

‘Our first amendment is merging into the 13th amendment in front of our eyes meaning our freedom of speech is being challenged [sic].’

Kanye has previously said Davidson would not be allowed to meet the children, North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm, he shares with Kardashian.

He has also called Davidson a ‘dick’ and posted the message: ‘Hold your spouse close. Make sure they know how much you love and appreciate them because there’s a Skete lurking in every dirty arsealley waiting to help destroy your family and walk around in Calvin Kleins around your children.’

Kanye West later deleted the posts confessing that he was ‘learning in real time’, adding: ‘I’m working on my communication. 

‘I can benefit from a team of creative professionals, organizers, mobilizers and community leaders. Thank everybody for supporting me [sic].’

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are filing for divorce after almost seven years of marriage.
