Like clockwork, Kanye West released his “Eazy” video after a judge ruled Kim Kardashian legally single. Now, he’s receiving backlash for the cringey visuals where a claymation version of Kim’s boyfriend, Pete Davidson, is kidnapped, decapitated and buried alive. Folks have been going off on Ye about the clip, including comedian D.L. Hughley.
Find out what they’re saying, plus deets on Ye & Kim’s informal custody arrangement inside….
Not long after reports were released about Kim K’s new single status, the 44-year-old rapper released disturbing visuals for his track “Eazy,” which features The Game. It’s a cut from Kanye’s newly released DONDA 2 album.
The Chi-town rapper released the video on his official Instagram account (with 15 million followers), which showed a claymation version of “SNL” star Pete Davidson (who is currently dating Kim K) being kidnapped, decapitated and buried alive.
At the end of the clip, a truck full of roses appeared, which is similar to the Valentine’s Day delivery Ye sent to Kim.
”EVERYONE LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER,” is written across the screen before Ye pokes fun at Pete, dubbing him Skate. “EXCEPT SKETE YOU KNOW WHO. JK HE’S FINE," appeared on the screen.

CRINGEY! And super insensitive since Pete suffers trauma from the loss of his father, who was a New York City firefighter with Brooklyn Ladder Company 118 who died during the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center.
Folks have been calling Ye out for the video. Peep some reactions below:
Kanye West decapitating Pete Davidson in his new music video is absolutely disgusting and pathetic. The man’s 44 and having a completely one-sided feud with this guy to this extreme, it’s vile and so uncomfortable to witness unfold. He needs to be de-platformed like Trump. pic.twitter.com/rDvAJxZnQG

That #Kanye #Eazy video is disturbing. This is emotional abuse and will end very badly for this family. I felt terrified, can’t imagine how Kim feels. He’s terrorizing her as punishment and I hope people will stop excusing this as art.

Even comedian D.L. Highly reacted to the video. He said he doesn’t think Ye’s actions are funny at all:
D.L Hughley got the best take on this Kanye West, Kim K, and Pete Davidson situation. pic.twitter.com/SRmUVlxJrt

This is just the latest attack from Ye against Pete. During Super Bowl LVI weekend, the Grammy winning rapper posted up several harassing posts aimed at Pete, which he eventually deleted. Not only that, he threatens to beat Pete’s a** on the “Eazy” track. Kim K filed papwerwork in court, revealing Ye’s harassing posts caused her "emotional distress."
As for Ye & Kim’s lingering custody battle, it’s being reported the former couple will likely have an open-door policy when it comes to custody of their four children – North, Saint, Chicago & Pslam. TMZ reports:
Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ … based on Kanye’s schedule, which involves significant global travel, the typical custody arrangement spells out in detail who gets the kids and when is simply impractical. For instance, they’ve attended birthday parties and other functions together as a family, without any kind of formal structure. It’s possible they’d create a structure for XMAS, Thanksgiving and other holidays, but Kanye is a global traveler because of his various businesses, so planning ahead may be unrealistic.
Our sources say as crazy as the divorce has been, the custody issues for the most part have been handled peacefully. Whenever Kanye’s in L.A. and wants to see the kids, Kim has facilitated it. For example, the other day Kanye wanted to take one of the kids to a basketball game, and Kim gladly obliged. In other words, there’s an open-door policy when it comes to custody.
Kanye also typically gets the kids every Sunday for his Sunday Service.
With all of the online drama Ye is creating, we doubt this “open-door policy” will last long.
