Kanye West attacks Pete Davidson in second ‘Eazy’ music video

Kanye West has released a second music video and Kim Kardashian’s boyfriend, Pete Davidson, is a feature again.

Pete Davidson cannot catch a break.

An animated version of the Saturday Night Live star finds himself getting attacked yet again in a second music video for Kanye West’s song Eazy, Page Six reports. This time, however, a skinned monkey does the dirty work.

As West raps the line, “God saved me from that crash / Just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s ass,” the bloodied monkey beats a blurred-out Davidson – who wears a hoodie with “Skete,” West’s nickname for the comic – to the ground.

It’s the same skinned monkey that appeared on the cover art for Eazy.

In the first video for the track, released earlier this month, West kidnapped and buried alive a Claymation version of the King of Staten Island actor.

“EVERYONE LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER, EXCEPT SKETE YOU KNOW WHO. JK, HE’S FINE,” read the final frame, with the word “SKETE” scratched out.

Neither Davidson, 28, nor his girlfriend, West’s ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, has responded to the audiovisual threats.

West, 44, faced a tonne of backlash for the first video, but obviously that has not stopped him from continuing this form of art. In fact, in response to the criticism, he defended his portrayal of Davidson as protected by the First Amendment.

“Art is therapy just like this view. Art is protected as freedom of speech,” West wrote on social media. “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.”

The Black Skinhead rapper’s art certainly does have range, as he published a bleak poem about being “dead” not long after releasing his music video.

West and Kardashian, 41, were declared legally single last week amid their ongoing divorce.

The exes share four children: North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 2.
