Kanye West goes after ‘SNL’s’ Pete Davidson, show for mental health jokes and says Lorne Michaels is ‘next up’

It appears Kanye West’s feud with Pete Davidson sees no end in sight.

On Thursday, the “All of the Lights” emcee, 44, called out the media as well as “SNL” for piling on to banter centered around his mental health in a since-deleted Instagram post.

“Someone always telling you you’re crazy can drive someone crazy,” he began in a lengthy caption going after “liberals” he believes “have tried to discredit me for 20 years.”

Naming a few specific outlets, including “SNL,” which he referred to as “a gang,” the rapper and fashion mogul claimed that collectively the named entities have “tried to minimize bully harass control discredit and patronize me for years” before calling the outlet’s “Godless.”

Just earlier in the day, West once again took to Instagram to defend his social media posts coming after “Saturday Night Live” star Davidson, 28. He called it “payback” while sharing a resurfaced “SNL” clip of the comedian performing a skit while wearing a red MAGA style has altered to read “MAKE KANYE 2006 AGAIN.”

“HI SKETE YOU GOT ANYMORE MENTAL HEALTH JOKES FOR ME?” West wrote in the post’s caption.

West also went on to post another video from the 2018 “Weekend Update” segment that saw Davidson tell West that he should take medication for bipolar disorder.

“Kanye, I know you’re like, ‘Yo, this is the real me, I’m off the meds’ — take ’em. I’m on ’em, it’s great,” Davidson said in the clip.

Davidson has been outspoken about dealing with his own mental health for which he was diagnosed with a borderline personality disorder at age 23.

West reacted to the resurfaced viral clip writing: “This boy thought he could get away with performing this sketch for the team that wrote this for him This is not harassment This is payback.”

In a follow-up Instagram post, West also targeted Lorne Michaels in his diatribe and said the “SNL” executive producer had some choice words coming to him as well.

“Next up,” he wrote alongside Michaels’ Wikipedia bio.

The remarks come in the wake of West being fresh off of a breakup from actress Julia Fox.

Despite the current state of their marriage – which has been stymied in divorce proceedings – West has also professed his love for the 41-year-old founder of Skims while simultaneously exhibiting his disdain for Davidson.

West went to Instagram on Valentine’s Day and shared a screenshot of Kardashian enjoying a date night with Davidson.
