Back in Feb. of 2021, rapper Kayne West and model Kim Kardashian filed for a divorce. Although their divorce was not finalized until March 2, 2022, Kardashian and comedian Pete Davidson began dating in Oct. of 2021 after filming together on “Saturday Night Live” (SNL). It is safe to say this did not make West happy and he was not quiet about his anger. 

On Feb. 13, West publicly posted a photoshopped version of Marvel’s “Civil War” poster onto his instagram page in which he replaced the heads of the marvel characters with his own head and alongside him is Drake, Julia Fox, Travis Scott and Future. On the other side of the battle is Kardashian, Davidson, Kid Cudi, Billie Eilish and Taylor Swift. He also refers to Davidson in his Instagram posts as “Skete” as a way to be demeaning towards him. 

However, he did not stop with that one post. Two days after his divorce finalized on March 4, he posted a sappy poem titled “DIVORCE.” Although the poem is way too long to recite fully, it includes lines such as, “Divorce feels like grandma never got over that cold. Divorce feels like you worked overtime all week and you ain’t allowed off for the weekend. Divorce Feels like Michael Myers.”

 Surprisingly, this post received an extreme amount of positive comments from verified users such as @prodbyzaqq who commented, “This man just wants his family back.. Skete could never” and @lilmabu who commented, “It’s okay Ye. U don’t need her.” West also posted a picture of his daughter North’s backpack which had pins of both Kardashian and West’s faces on it. He captioned the post “This was on my daughter’s backpack when I was “allowed” to see her last week. This is why I go so hard for my family I am wired to protect my family at all cost. As the Priest of my home Don’t worry Northy God is still alive.” Kardashian then replied to this absurd post with, “Please stop with this narrative, you were just here this morning picking the kids up for school.” These were not the only posts he made about Kardashian and Davidson but he seemed to delete every post he created within 24 hours. 

The most frightening action of West’s, which made fans scared for Davidson’s safety and West’s mental health, was the release of West’s new music video. On March 3, West released the music video to his song “Eazy” which features the line “God saved me from the crash, so I can beat Pete Davidson’s a**.” The video also shows a clay-mation version of West burying Davidson alive and decapitating him. He ended the video with a frame that read, “EVERYONE LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER/ EXCEPT SKETE YOU KNOW WHO/ JK HE’S FINE.” The video was very disturbing to say the least. Kardashian publicly mentioned that the video and all his posts were causing “emotional distress” on her and her family. Davidson also stated that he hired more security and bodyguards after the video was released. 

The most recent news between West and Davidson is the release of a text exchange between the two. Davidson had reached his breaking point and was tired of West playing the victim and throwing Kardashian under the bus. Davidson messaged West saying, “Yo it’s Skete. Can you please take a second and calm down it’s 8 am and it don’t gotta be like this. Kim is literally the best mother I’ve ever met. What she does for those kids is amazing and you are so lucky that she’s your kids’ mom. I’ve decided I’m not going to let you treat us this way anymore and I’m done being quiet.”

 West then proceeded to ask Davidson where he was and he responded with a selfie and the iconic line, “in bed with your wife,” to which West replied, “Happy to see you’re out the hospital and rehab.” Davidson suggested that West try rehab and that he stop fighting him publicly. He even told West that he himself has mental issues and that is a hard journey but that he could help West fight his struggles. Davidson also told him that he had stopped SNL from making jokes about him because he does not want to talk badly about the father of his girlfriend’s kids. Although Davidson tried to be mature about the situation, West did not agree to Davidson’s offer to meet and talk.

Trevor Noah, the host of “The Daily Show” commented on West and Kardashian’s situation saying, “If Kim Kardashian, one of the richest and most influential women currently living, can’t get her emotionally manipulative ex-husband to leave her alone, what honest chance does a normal woman have? … What she’s going through is terrifying to watch and shines a spotlight on what so many women go through when they choose to leave.” West, of course, was very classy about the situation and responded to Noah by calling him a racial slur. This resulted in West being banned from the Grammy awards and on Instagram.

It is clear that West needs mental help and needs to stop posting and speaking publicly. Where is his manager? Many TikTok users have brought up the clear double standards between celebrities. Thinking back on Britney Spears’ breakdown and all the consequences she faced and the rights she lost seems unfair compared to how much more West has done. He has threatened and slandeded Davidson publicly and is still allowed to see his kids, make music and live his life as usual. Davidson, Kardashian and her children all deserve to feel safe and happy. It is insane that West has been applauded and called “God” for doing such absurd and hurtful things, yet when Spears needed mental health help, she got her children and her human rights taken away from her.
