Pete Davidson is not letting Kanye West’s ongoing online attacks get to him.
The Saturday Night Live star, 28, is apparently unfazed by the 44-year-old’s latest stunt – a disturbing music video for Kanye’s new song Eazy where the rapper appears to bury a clay-animated version of Pete alive.
A source told Page Six ‘He finds the fact that Kanye included a cartoon version of him in his music video hysterical.’

The insider added that the comedian is flattered by the attention. ‘He is almost flattered by it all because it is so ridiculous to him.’
The source went on to note that the State Island native – born Peter Michael Davidson – is ‘not threatened by Kanye in any way, shape or form.’
Davidson is also using Ye’s online outbursts to grow his relationship with his girlfriend – and Kanye’s ex-wife – Kim Kardashian, 41.

‘He’s using this to grow in more ways than one, including for himself and his relationship with Kim. He is turning all of the negativity into a positive thing.’
In the controversial music video a clay-animated version of Kanye is seen kidnapping a claymation Pete, putting a bag over his head before tying him up and throwing him on the back of an all-terrain vehicle.
The cartoon Kanye then buries Pete alive, keeping his head above the dirt and growing roses on it.

Kanye ended the clip with a direct message to the Saturday Night Live star: ‘Everyone lived happily ever after, except Skete’ before crossing out the name and writing, ‘You know who.’
The musician continually refers to Pete as ‘Skete’ as a disparaging nickname, though the meaning of moniker remains unclear.
In the song – which features The Game – Kanye is also heard rapping about ‘beating Pete Davidson’s a**.’
The funnyman reportedly felt the same way when he first heard the song, with a source telling Page Six at the time, ‘Pete thinks it’s totally hilarious. Not just that — he thinks the whole [tabloid drama with him, West and Kardashian] is hilarious. He loves it.’

This isn’t the first time he’s mentioned Pete on a song. In his verse on Fivio Foreign’s new track, City of Gods, Kanye raps, ‘This afternoon, a hundred goons pullin’ up to SNL.’
One person not amused by it all is Kim, who is said to be ‘furious’ over the video and thinks that it’s ‘way too violent.’
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.’
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star – who shares kids North, eight, Chicago, four, Saint, six, and Psalm, two, with Kanye – began dating Pete after she hosted SNL on October 9.
Kim – who filed for divorce from Kanye last year – got one step closer to regaining her freedom amid the contentious divorce when a judge approved her request to be declared legally single last Wednesday.
She has also since removed ‘West’ from all her social media platforms, reverting back to her maiden name.
