Kanye ‘Ye’ West has stooped to the lowest of the low.
The rapper is reportedly spreading rumors about Pete Davidson’s health and sex life.
TMZ reports the Yeezy designer is telling his friends the ‘SNL’ alum has AIDS.
AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) is caused by untreated HIV (human immunodeficiency syndrome), which is a virus that attacks the body’s immune system.
AIDS is the most severe phase of HIV infection according to CDC.gov, and there is currently no cure.
Kanye Says Pete Has AIDS
Per the CDC’s website, “people with AIDS have such badly damaged immune systems that they get an increasing number of severe illnesses, called opportunistic infections.”
Without proper treatment, people with AIDS typically survive about three years.
The rumor Kanye is spreading has reportedly gotten back to Pete, and now Ye’s close friends are denying it.
Earlier this week, DJ Akademiks claimed, “Kanye’s telling everybody within earshot that Pete has aids.”
Per TMZ, Ye’s claim has led to a few awkward phone calls between Pete and mutual friends he has with Kanye, who are confused and disturbed by this behavior.
Pete’s Gotten Wind Of The Rumor Kanye Is Spreading
However, one source close to the rap star told the outlet the allegation that he’s spreading the rumor is “nonsense.”
Earlier this month, Ye also took a swing at Pete in his song, “My Life Was Never Eazy.”
He raps, “God saved from that crash, Just so I could beat Pete Davidson’s A**.”
Twitter is popping off in response to TMZ’s report about Ye’s claims, and it’s a bit divided.
One person tweeted, “AIDS or not… it’s not cool to discriminate against people with any form off disease of disability.”
Another tweeted, “Not cool Ye.”
“They say that there’s a fine line between insanity and genius and Kanye is living proof. On any given day he’s being genius or totally insane. This is the latter [insane]. When he’s in that mode he doesn’t seem to take anyone else into consideration or think through what he says,” a fan replied.
Twitter Pops Off At Kanye
This person used the opportunity to spread awareness about the virus tweeting, “People’ don’t ‘have AIDS’ just so everyone is clear. People get HIV and if the virus is above an undetectable level, it is categorized as AIDS. I know that isn’t the point of this article but let’s at least start from an educated place concerning this virus.”

There are also people who are worried about Ye’s kids.
“I feel so bad for his kids at this point,” a worried Twitter user wrote.
Others are taking aim at the publication for the reporting the rumor.
“You need to stop this grotesqueness. It’s abusive and creating more abuse and chaotic behavior,” an upset person tweeted.
Another pointed out the fact that they’re reporting a rumor about a rumor; “So your spreading a rumor about Kanye spreading a rumor.”
“Y’all are so shameless it’s sad,” one other person chimed in.
Pete does suffer from Crohn’s disease which he was diagnosed with as a teenager.
According to the Mayo Clinic, Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease that can cause a host of potentially-debilitating side effects, from fatigue, to severe diarrhea, to malnutrition.
Pete Suffers From Crohn’s Disease
Pete’s Crohn’s illness has led to intense abdominal pain, causing him to have a very small appetite.
The actor revealed that his coping mechanism is weed.
In an interview with High Times he said, “Weed would be the only thing that would help me eat because my stomach would be in pain all day. I wouldn’t be able to do ‘SNL’ if I didn’t smoke weed.”
He also admitted that at one point in time he weighed an astronomically low weight for a male of his stature.
“There was a point where I couldn’t get out of bed. I was 110 pounds,” the comedian told People magazine.
The side effects of Crohn’s have made Pete the butt of many jokes including one where someone claimed he had “butthole eyes.”
Barstool Sports made the “butthole eyes” joke at Pete’s expense on Twitter back in 2018. This was when he was engaged to Ariana Grande who did not take kindly to the low blow.
Responding to Barstool she tweeted, “Y’all do kno this man has an auto immune disease…… right ? …. Like you do understand what you’re doing when u do this right ? just wanna make sure.”
Neither Kim Kardashian nor Pete have publicly responded to Ye’s claim.
