Pete Davidson is finding humor in Kanye West’s latest attack.
Amid their one-sided feud, Ye debuted the ominous video for “Eazy,” his collaboration with The Game, which finds him kidnapping and burying a claymation version of Kim Kardashian’s boyfriend.
But the murder depiction did not seem to offend Davidson, who apparently found the caricature of him to be hilarious.
“He finds the fact that Kanye included a cartoon version of him in his music video hysterical,” a source tells “Entertainment Tonight.” “He is almost flattered by it all because it is so ridiculous to him.”
Ye also threatened to “beat Pete Davidson’s ass” on the song, while the video ends with a message: “Everyone lived happily ever after. Except Skete.”
Despite the disturbing visual, the source says that the “SNL” comedian “is not threatened by Kanye in any way, shape or form.”
In fact, Ye’s ongoing attacks have only brought him and Kim closer together. “He’s using this to grow in more ways than one including for himself and his relationship with Kim,” says the source. “He is turning all of the negativity into a positive thing.”
Davidson has been a support system to Kim throughout her contentious divorce from Ye. “Pete is so understanding and has made an extreme effort to put any of his emotions aside and just be a support system for Kim during this difficult time and transition,” adds the source. “Pete has grown so much as an adult, man, public figure and partner through this process, even though he has unexpectedly been thrown in the middle of things, including Kanye’s rants and the publicity that followed.”
Kim was declared legally single by a judge this week. After the divorce hearing, Ye shared a poem comparing the legal process to a series of painful experiences like having COVID, being shot, and suffocating.
“Michael Jackson said it best / You’re a vegetable / You’re a vegetable / You’re the real Cosby / Not a Huxtable,” he writes in the closing lines.
