Despite taking his anger out on “Saturday Night Live” cast members — most notably Pete Davidson — Kanye “Ye” West has not been banned from “SNL,” per Us Weekly.
Rumors began swirling that Ye had been unofficially banned from the late-night comedy show due to his tirades against Davidson, as sources said Davidson is the “golden boy” on “SNL,” and the bosses wanted to protect him. Now, according to Us Weekly, the rumors are not true and Ye hasn’t been banned. Instead, the show is choosing to stay out of the drama.
Though Ye has an undeniable issue with Davidson, the “Kind of Staten Island” is not the only “SNL” cast member on the receiving end of Ye’s social media attacks. On February 13, the rapper posted to Instagram offering to pay for “SNL” star Michael Che to leave the comedy show and to stop working with Davidson, per the Wrap. “I’ll double whatever they paying you just so you don’t have to look at that pawn ever again big love,” Ye wrote to Che in a now-deleted Instagram post. Despite the offer, Che posted his own now-deleted social media post saying he wouldn’t be taking the offer. “Sorry Ye, but I would never betray my friends for anything less than TRIPLE SALARY,” he joked online. Now, with no ban against Ye — and as Kim and Davidson’s relationship remains steady — maybe we will even see perform Ye on an upcoming episode of “SNL.”
