College Course News Receives Mixed Reaction From Fans
However, on the other side of the aisle were a few worried skeptics.
“Probs the worst time to do this with Kanye,” someone commented.
Another added, “You mean psych101?”
Multiple others echoed the Psych 101 sentiment writing things like, “Case study in psychology,” and “I believe that is Psychology.”
Kanye has made waves in the entertainment industry and media since he broke onto the scene in the early 2000s.
But more recently, he’s made catastrophic waves for his children and ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, in the media.
The Blast has been on the pulse of everything Kanye since he began publicly dragging Kim, her new boyfriend, Pete Davidson, and the Kardashian-Jenner family since late 2020.
Most recently, Kanye warned Pete to “stay away from my children.”
On Wednesday, March 16, the “Donda” rapper shared an article with the headline: “Pete Davidson Enrages Audience With Jokes About Having Sex With A Baby.”
The headline links to a Breitbart article that was written on January 28, 2019.
During a stand-up comedy routine at The Bell House in Brooklyn, New York, the “Saturday Night Live” comedian recalled a story about babysitting his friend’s child, who was teething at the time. He said that the baby was sucking his finger in a “good way.”
The Montreal Gazette reported that he said, “I don’t want to f— this baby but he’s asking for it” and allegedly later added that he’s “not into having sex with babies but if he was, he would choose that baby.”
Kanye also expressed his fear that Pete will get Kim hooked on drugs.
“I’m really concerned that SKETE will get my kids mom hooked on drugs he’s in rehab every 2 months,” he wrote responding to a fan.
Over the weekend, Pete slighted the rap star by telling him, in leaked text messages, he was “in bed with your wife.”
