Kanye West Drops the Second 'Eazy' Video Attacking Pete Davidson
Although less violent than the original animated visual, in the second music video for 'Eazy', Kanye West goes after Pete Davidson again.
Kanye West hasn't buried the hatchet with Pete Davidson. While less graphic than the first "Eazy" music video, in a follow-up CGI visual for The Game-assisted cut. This time, he sics a wild monkey on someone who resembles Davidson. While Davidson's face is blurred-out, the character wears a "Skete" hoodie.
In the first 'Eazy' video which was partially stop-motion, an animated Ye kidnaps and buries Davidson. At the end of the video, Ye shares a clear warning to the current boyfriend of his soon-to-be ex-wife, Kim Kardashian:
“EVERYONE LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER/EXCEPT SKETE YOU KNOW WHO/JK HE’S FINE.”
Following immediate backlash of the first 'Eazy' visual, Ye went to Instagram to defend himself.
“Art is therapy just like this view. Art is protected as freedom of speech,” he wrote on Instagram. “Art inspires and simplifies the world. Art is not a proxy for any ill or harm. Any suggestion otherwise about my art is false and mal intended.”
Prior to posting his art-defending statement, last week, Ye also went to Instagram to publicly grieve his ongoing divorce battle after it was announced that Kardashian legally declared herself single. Kardashian removed the ‘West’ surname from her social media profiles, while Ye has posted cryptic poems titled 'DIVORCE' and 'DEAD'.
According to Entertainment Tonight, Davidson has allegedly taken the animated depictions lightly, finding Ye’s portrayal of him “hysterical.” The source also shared that Davidson is "almost flattered by it all because it is so ridiculous to him.”
