Kanye West has attracted backlash after sharing his music video for “Easy” featuring The Game, Independent reports.
The report says the music video, which was released on Wednesday (2 March), sees the rapper burying a cartoon figure who bears a close resemblance to Pete Davidson.
It comes after the rapper, who legally changed his name to Ye last year, has repeatedly shared derogatory posts about Saturday Night Live star Davidson on social media.
The comedian is currently dating Ye’s estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, who was granted her request to be declared “legally single” by a judge on Wednesday 2 March.
Davidson is mentioned in the lyrics of the track, with Ye saying: “God saved me from the crash, just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s ass.”
Many viewers expressed their unease with the Grammy-award winner’s new video.
“I just need to know that Pete Davidson’s okay bc that Kanye claymation is disturbing af,” wrote one person.
Another added: “Kanye’s Pete Davidson song is the most disturbing music video I’ve ever seen.”
“The obsession Kanye has with Pete Davidson is pretty disturbing at this point,” concurred one user.
