Pete Davidson couldn’t resist taking a swipe at Kim Kardashian ‘s ex-husband Kanye West as he returned to the stage for the first time in three years for a performance at Netflix Is A Joke: The Festival at the Hollywood Bowl on Thursday.
Unsurprisingly, Pete, 28, – who has been dating Kim, 41, for several months now – cracked a number of jokes about his bitter relationship with the Stronger rapper, 44.
At the beginning of the set, according to Entertainment Tonight, Pete joked about Kanye telling him he had AIDS and said he believed him “because he’s a genius”.
However, a source claimed to The Sun earlier this year that Ye was ‘furious’ people thought he would spread a rumour about Pete having AIDS.
“Kanye is raging about people claiming he said Pete has AIDS. He is furious the whole world would think he said that,” the source said. “He said [the] words Pete ‘looks’ like he has AIDS, not that he ‘had’ AIDS.”
During Pete’s set, he is also said to have quipped that being humiliated is incredibly strange when there’s nothing you can do about it.
Pete also mentioned that he wasn’t upset over his pal Jack Harlow collaborating with the Donda rapper.
Mirror have contacted Kanye’s representatives for comment.
The stand-up comedian has been on the receiving end of many rants and insults from Kanye.
Not only did Ye – who shares four children with Kim – call the actor a ‘d***head’, he also mentions him in his song Eazy.
“God saved me from that crash,” he raps. “Just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s a**.”
In one of the music videos, a claymation version of Pete (aptly named Skete) was buried.
In another video, a cartoon version of the monkey from the song’s cover art beats up the comedian.
At one point, it was reported that Kim was upset over the violent animation.

“Kim thinks it’s way too violent and is upset,” a source told PEOPLE.
“She’s really upset with Kanye that he’d do this. She’s completely over all of this and she wants it to stop.”
Despite the stress and the drama, Kim and Pete are head over heels for each other and have been spotted on endless dates.
She even finally posted pictures of him on her Instagram recently.

Earlier this month, Kim even admitted that she never planned on being in a relationship with the King of Staten Island actor.
Speaking on Hoda Kotb’s Making Space podcast, the SKIMS founder said: “I think that, you know, sometimes things happen when you just least expect it. It was the last thing that I was really planning on.
“And so when it did happen, we were kind of like, ‘Oh my God, I wasn’t planning on this. And this isn’t even what I was thinking of.”
