Pete Davidson is not happy about Kanye West’s controversial SNL rant – and he’s calling out YE for his troubling behavior.
If you can recall, Kanye appeared on Saturday Night Live last week. During his stint on the show, he voiced out some very polarizing Pro-Trump comments off the air. Kanye’s words made a lot of people in the studio uncomfortable – including the show’s cast members.
During SNL’s Weekend Update, Pete made an appearance to address what Kanye did. The 24-year-old SNL star spoke jokingly in the beginning:
“Speaking strictly for myself, what Kanye said after we went off the air last week was one of the worst, most awkward things I’ve ever seen here. And I’ve seen Chevy Chase speak to an intern.”
But his sentiments and disapproval were still made very clear. He stated this while footage was being shown of Kaye’s rant, with the SNL cast members standing behind him and Pete seen with his head down, before exiting the stage altogether:
“We all had to stand behind him, and here is what it looked like.
I’m here on the left and I’m like, ‘Oh, god.’ And then I’m like, ‘I want a career.’ So I leave.”
Pete went on to call out Kanye for his actions and for the things he said:
“So, Kanye was wearing a MAGA hat… and he started by saying people backstage tried to bully him into not wearing it. He wore it all week. Like, nobody told him not to wear it. I wish I bullied you. I wish I would’ve suggested that it might upset some people like, your wife, or every black person ever.
Then Kanye said that Democrats broke up black families with welfare, and that slavery is not real. Do you know how wrong about politics you have to be for, like, me to notice? Do you know how annoying that is?
Kanye is a genius, but like a musical genius. Like Joey Chestnut is a hot dog eating genius. I don’t want to hear Joey Chestnut’s opinion about things that aren’t hot dog related.”
Following his statements against Kanye, it seems Pete’s ladylove Ariana has decided to stand by her man!
In the 25-year-old pop star’s Instagram Stories over the weekend, Ari showed Pete some love – while expertly and very subtly shading Kanye at the same time!
She posted a Boomerang of Pete’s SNL intro along with this caption:
“I love you like Kanye loves Kanye.”
