While performing his latest comedy show as part of the Netflix Is A Joke Festival, Pete Davidson told the audience that his old friend John Mulaney suggested him that to circulate a rumour about Kanye West in the wake of the news that West was falsely claiming and spreading rumours that the Saturday Night Live star has AIDS.
Pete Davidson shared with the audience at the festival, “You know what’s really funny about that? AIDS is such an old-school-like thing. ‘You have AIDS’. It’s just such a ’90s, early 2000s thing to like came at me.” He then went ahead and disclosed in front of everyone that his longtime pal John Mulaney did something hilarious and strange in response to Kanye spreading word about Davidson being HIV positive, telling, “John Mulaney called me. He’s like, ‘AIDS? You should spread a rumour that he has polio!”
In January, 2022, the “Praise God” rapper began spreading the misinformation and uncorroborated claims which depicted “The King of Staten Island” actor as a homosexual man who got AIDS. Kanye also told others that Pete is a junkie. These bizzare rumours started following speculation and reports that Davidson was dating West’s former wife Kim Kardashian which later turned out to be true, he began spreading them to humiliate Pete.
Now, as far as Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson are concerned, their relationship is climbing ladders as the couple are increasingly seen together in public these days. Starting with their red carpet appearance at the White House Correspondents Dinner and later at the Met Gala.
