Several celebrities have revealed their status on Kanye ‘Ye’ West and Pete Davidson’s beef, and a few preferred to remain in the gray area. However, “SNL’s” Chris Redd had a few things to say about the subject.
The relentless online attacks from Ye initially did not trigger any response from Davidson. However, he reportedly started retaliating in kind to the musician.

Davidson’s friend and co-host on the “Saturday Night Live“ show, Redd, recently appeared on SiriusXM’s “The Jess Cagle Show,” where he revealed how celebrities, including Ye, have reacted to his “SNL” imitations of them.
Jess Cagle began with a question for the actor about the celebrities he had heard from regarding how they felt about the impressions. Most of those Redd had heard from were pretty cool about his satire.
The comedian mentioned a few, including Eric Adams, who loved his act which Redd felt was cool because that was one of his favorites.
He further said, “I know Kanye don’t like my impressions, but I don’t care though.” The rapper did not tell him so directly but made a revealing gesture that made Redd assume he did not like the humorous act.
Redd and the rap star come from the same place and know the same people. He revealed that he was raised joking, and that was how he and Ye grew up.
Julia Cunningham, the co-host, further pinpointed the issue between Ye and Davidson by asking the guest if any conversation regarding the subject had been brought up backstage of the “Saturday Night Live” show.
The 36-year-old had the mind to joke about the feud, but he refrained from doing so as the situation was serious.
He did not want to make fun of Ye’s mental health as he had issues himself and was aware of such things. Instead, he makes fun of his ego and his irresponsibility of the whole drama. The “Come Back Barack” co-writer said:
“I’m really tired of sitting on these jokes though. So I hope they figure that out soon cause I ain’t got nothing to do with none of this.”
He said Davidson was handling everything well as he started speaking again, so Redd promised his jokes would start flying soon.
Even though Ye and Redd are not friends, the actor was still a fan of the artist’s music and wanted the best for him.
“I hope that he like learns how to handle this, so they could just move on with their lives. But yeah, it’s not interesting to me to stir the pot on something that’s just unhealthy, you know?” Redd concluded.
The ongoing dispute between the two celebrities has sparked numerous chatter, which has made fans and critics alike take sides, especially since Davidson gave his comeback shots.
The Blast recently revealed that social media users reacted to the comedy icon’s “In bed with your wife” response to Ye’s question about where he was.
An individual took to Twitter to call Davidson sick, saying the actor allegedly sent a picture of himself in bed with Kardashian, similar to what he did to Mac Miller when he was in a relationship with Ariana Grande.
Several took Ye’s side for trying to care for his kids and accepting the divorce, while others defended Davidson for tolerating all of the singer’s insults.
The “SNL” Star Receives Support From Cast Members Regarding Feud
Davidson has been repeatedly absent from the “Saturday Night Live” show and Bowen Yang, his cast partner, opened up about the reason.
The Blast previously confirmed that the “SNL” comedian was on leave to wrap up his present movie program.
However, Yang said there was more to it as the show’s whole cast supported Davidson and gave him time to deal with his feud with Ye.
The “SNL” co-star told Entertainment Weekly, “We are supporting him by giving him space. I think he’s just, you know, figuring it out because I think a lot is out of his control in terms of people’s responses.”
Yang hoped “The King of Staten Island” actor would find his way through the battle with Ye. He further said the cast members loved him and were thinking about him.
Fortunately for Davidson, he was done keeping quiet about Ye’s matter as he previously mentioned he would not let the music icon maltreat him and his lover again.
