Pete Davidson Deactivates Instagram One Week After Returning to Social Media Platform

Pete Davidson returned to Instagram just over a week ago and it appears as if he’s already deactivated his new account.

Shading Kanye West

The move comes a week after surprising fans with his return to the platform following a four-year hiatus, which the SNL star previously left to protect his mental health in 2018.

Davidson was following just a handful of people — including Kim Kardashian, who he’s been dating since late October.

Now, when you search for his page, you are directed to the ‘Sorry, this page isn’t available’ screen.

Before shutting down his account, the 28-year-old actor made one post to his feed, which was a clip from Martin Scorsese’s film The King of Comedy. In the scene, Robert De Niro states: ‘Better to be king for a night than schmuck for a lifetime.’

Many believed Davidson was a not-so-subtle dig to West, 44, who for few past weeks had been harassing him, calling him a ‘d***head’, among other things.

Dragged into the Divorce

Given that Pete previously stepped back from social media to protect himself from negative comments, many users noted that his timing with rejoining the platform seemed strange in light of Wests’s ongoing digs.

West had leaked a bunch of messages from Kim, in which she urged her ex to stop encouraging violence against Pete after he asked fans to scream “KIMYE FOREVER” at him if they saw him in public. He later deleted everything, after he received backlash for his behavior online, saying he would be taking accountability and is “still learning in real time” 

Kim filed for divorce from Kanye, now legally known as Ye, a year ago. During their marriage, and particularly since the split, they’ve repeatedly clashed over their different parenting styles while raising their four children: daughter North, 8; son Saint, 6; daughter Chicago, 4; and son Psalm, 2.
