Pete Davidson is returning the favor to Ye. 

Kanye West did not miss an opportunity to poke fun at Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson earlier this year, after it was established that Ye's ex-wife Kim Kardashian was romantically involved with the comedian. Whether it was by depicting his cartoon caricature being kidnapped and beheaded in a music video or by asking his fans to yell at Pete Davidson whenever they see him or referring to him as Skete or by publicly calling him out, Ye did everything. 

So, when it was Pete Davidson’s turn to go up on stage and perform at the Netflix is a Joke festival this week at the Hollywood Bowl, the comedian took the opportunity to speak about the situation and take a dig at Kanye West’s behavior towards him. Pete Davidson, who returned to the stage after three years, said that he had an AIDS scare this year, referring to the rumor that came out in January that suggested that Ye had spread lies that Pete Davidson had AIDS, he's gay and is hooked onto drugs. Pete added that he went to see a doctor for a quick check-in because Ye is a "genius."

Pete Davidson also went ahead to joke about Kanye West’s public statements about Kim Kardashian (which were seen as harassment by a lot of people) and an incident where he sent roses to her house in a truck and compared the whole situation with the movie "Mrs. Doubtfire," which was released in 1993 and starred Robin Williams. Robin Williams dressed up as a housekeeper to spend more time with his kids, who lived at his ex-wife’s house.

Pete Davidson joked and said that he is the only one who secretly hopes that Kanye West will go full Mrs. Doubtfire? This joke could also refer to the fact that Kanye West mentioned that Kim Kardashian restricts his entrance to her house, which is why he cannot spend much time with his kids, to which Kim Kardashian at the time responded that it’s not true because he spends as much time as he wants with the kids.

During Pete Davidson's Netflix is a Joke festival set, the comedian also addressed a dear friend Jack Harlow's spot on Kanye West's "Donda 2," "Louis Bags," which he said he did not take personally, but if his "King of Staten Island" co-star Bill Burr became friends with Ye, that could be a problem.

Davidson said that if Bill Burr is seen at the Sunday service, it’s going to hurt. The Saturday Night Live comedian also made jokes about his fellow celebrity friends, which included Chris Rock and Jon Stewart, as Pete mentioned that since the Knicks game the trio attended in December, Chris Rock was slapped at the Oscars, he got his head chopped off in a music video, but Jon Stewart had won the Mark Twain award. Pete Davidson also called Machine Gun Kelly on stage for a quick performance. 

Kanye West shared with Kim Kardashian in March that he was going away to get some help and had stopped his social media battle with Pete Davidson, Kim Kardashian, and a lot of other celebrities, including Trevor Noah. The sources shared that Kanye is not going to make any public appearances or inflammatory social media statements and will get better for the sake of the kids. A source close to Kanye West shared that he is trying to disconnect from all the drama that has happened between him and his ex-wife and is focusing on getting better and taking care of himself in the best way. The rapper also pulled out from performing at the Coachella 2022 earlier this month. 

Pete Davidson, who walked the red carpet with Kim Kardashian at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, is going to appear in Meet Cute alongside Kaley Cuoco, Bodies, Bodies, and Good Mourning. The sources close to the family shared that Pete Davidson has been a great influence on Kim Kardashian recently as he makes her laugh all the time and feels loves and he just makes everything easy to breathe for her. The couple debuted at the MET GALA 2022 as well.
