Ye says he "ran Skete off the gram" after Pete Davidson deletes his IG

Los Angeles, California - Pete Davidson has apparently left Instagram just one week after secretly rejoining the app – and Kanye "Ye" West is taking credit for his departure.

As of Wednesday evening, the Saturday Night Live star's new page was no longer on IG.

Not even a week after discreetly making the new account with the handle @pmd, Pete has reportedly deactivated the page.

The King of Staten Island star had rejoined the platform after stepping away in July 2018 for mental health reasons. Therefore, it was a surprise when the 28-year-old returned to the IG scene last week despite only following two people: his girlfriend Kim Kardashian and Marvel alum Sebastian Stan.

So what caused Pete's abrupt decisions to both join and then leave again?

It's probable that Kim's estranged hubby's multiple immature attacks against the SNL star could have driven Pete to part ways with the app. Immediately after the comedian debuted his new account, Ye took the opportunity to again troll Pete by first following him, and then posting a screenshot from a 2018 SNL skit and mocking him.

Adding insult to injury, on Thursday, Ye boldly took credit for "running" Pete off of Instagram. The Hurricane artist posted a snap of the comedian's deleted account with the caption, "Ran Skete off the gram. Tell your mother I changed your name for life."

However, just before Pete pulled an IG Houdini, he may have subtly shaded the eccentric rapper.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Pete posted a link to a classic clip from Robert De Niro's 1982 film, The King of Comedy, in his Insta story.

In the video, De Niro recites the line, "It’s better to be king for a night than schmuck for a lifetime."

Could the rapper be the "schmuck"? While Pete may have left IG, Ye's continuous attacks have only further damaged his relationship with Kim.
