The artist formerly known as Kanye West has been on a roller coaster of emotions of late. Ye is seemingly feeling the effects of the divorce from Kim Kardashian, who was recently declared legally single.

The rap mogul recently took to social media to respond to the massive backlash over The Game’s “Easy” music video. At one point in the video, an animated, clay version of Ye beheads Pete Davidson.

Although the end of the video states “JK, he’s fine” regarding Davidson’s wellbeing, Ye still had to take to Instagram to explain artistic expression. He posted an explanation on his Instagram page.

“Art is therapy just like this view. Art is protected as freedom of speech. Art inspires and simplifies the world. Art is not a proxy for any ill or harm. Any suggestion otherwise about my art is false and mal intended.”

While Davidson himself found the entire notion “hysterical,” his girlfriend Kim Kardashian agreed with the belief shared by many on social media that Ye’s actions in the video meant direct threat for the SNL star.
