Pete Davidson Trashes Kanye West: ‘Being Mentally Ill Is Not an Excuse to Act Like a Jackass’

“Saturday Night Live” star Pete Davidson thinks Kanye West needs help, calling for the rapper to get on medication for his mental health issues.

Taking to the “Weekend Update” desk, Ariana Grande‘s boyfriend trashed the rapper’s appearance on the show the week before and slamming his claim that people forced Kanye to take off his infamous MAGA hat.

“He wore it all week,” Davidson said. “Nobody told him not to wear it.”

Pete Davidson called Kanye’s post-show ramblings “one of the worst, one of the most awkward, things I’ve ever seen while working here.”

But the comedian, who has talked openly about his own struggles with mental health issues, saved his strongest words for that topic, saying Kanye should be on medication.

“Take ’em,” Davidson said. “There’s no shame in the medicine game. I’m on ’em. It’s great.’

He then added, “Being mentally ill is not an excuse to act like a jackass. I’m quoting my therapist, my mom and my mailman.”
