Pete Davidson Seemingly Reignites Social Media Feud With Kanye West After Throwing Subtle Shade
Is Pete Davidson throwing shade?
The Saturday Night Live funnyman seemingly took shots at Kanye West by adding a Youtube link to the bio of his otherwise empty Instagram account.
The link led to a short clip of famed comedian Rupert Pupkin reciting one of his most popular quotes: "Better to be king for a night than schmuck for a lifetime."
The comment section of the video blew up with fans praising Davidson for the way he has been handling the one-sided social media feud following weeks of constant attacks thrown at him by the "Donda" rapper.
"There it is! No outbursts, grand gestures or engaging the media. Just a 10 second clip," one user commented. "Praying for Kanye as we all know he loves his family but enough is enough."
Another fan replied, "Pete coming in with hella shade and I am here for it. Slay King," while a third added, "You can’t roast a comedian, his whole job is to make fun of any situation with a come back."

This comes less than two weeks after the "Flashing Lights" rapper popped off about everything from The King of Staten Island actor's relationship with Kim Kardashian — with whom West shares North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2 — to his rumored former love life with Hillary Clinton in a bizarre social media rant.
"LOOK AT THIS D***HEAD," Ye captioned a since-deleted snapshot of Davidson on Sunday, February 13. "I WONDER IF INSTAGRAM GONNA SHUT DOWN MY PAGE FOR DISSING HILARY CLINTON’S EX BOYFRIEND."
West later took responsibility for his frequent social media tirades and removed all of the offending posts after Kardashian feared he was creating a "dangerous and scary environment" that could encourage one of Yeezy's fans to hurt the SNL star.
"I know sharing screen shots was jarring and came off as harassing Kim," he wrote in an apology post. "I take accountability. I’m still learning in real time. I don’t have all the answers. To be good leader is to be a good listener."
The reality star first filed for divorce from the billionaire rapper in February 2021. Davidson and the Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum have been linked since last October, shortly after the SKIMS founder's gig hosting Saturday Night Live.
