Pete Davidson compares Kanye West to Mrs. Doubtfire in his new Netflix comedy special, making light of the custody drama between his girlfriend Kim Kardashian and her ex-husband.
Earlier this year, Kanye, 44, made a string of accusations that Kim, 41, was preventing him from having full access to their four children; North, sight, Saint, six, Chicago, four and Psalm, three.
In a move that is sure to enrage the rapper, SNL funnyman Pete, 28, devotes a segment in Netflix Is a Joke: The Festival where he admits to ‘secretly hoping’ that Kim’s ex-husband ‘pulls a Mrs. Doubtfire.’

‘Does anyone else secretly hope that, like, Kanye pulls like a Mrs. Doubtfire?’ Pete tells the laughing crowd in a clip that was released Friday.
‘I come home one day and they’re like, this is the new housekeeper. And he’s like, “What’s up fam?”
The joke is relation to the 1993 family comedy that sees Robin Williams playing a recently divorced man who dresses up as a female housekeeper in order to spend time with his children.

The set was filmed on April 30 at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles, with Kim in attendance at the show.
In January this year, Kanye claimed that he wasn’t invited to Chicago’s 4th birthday party – a claim that was denied by sources close to the Kardashian family.
It was just one of many claims and attacks aimed at Kim and her boyfriend Pete, as Kanye appeared to be struggling to accept his ex-wife had moved on into a new relationship.

Pete devoted a whole segment to this time in his special, which is believed to have been recorded in late April, where he reveals he turned to friends for advice during the rocky time.
‘Yeah it’s a really weird thing to go through. Like… there’s… because, you know, people try to give you advice, but even friends that are, like, older, they’re like, I don’t know,’ Pete jokes.
‘They’re like he looks pretty mad bro. I hope… Good luck. Sorry. Here if you need, but like, no advice. No one was like, this is what you do.’
He then makes a joke about Kanye’s Sunday Service, after revealing that fans would ask Pete on the street if we was annoyed that Kanye had enlisted his pal Jack Harlow to sing on his track.

‘And I’m no, he’s a rapper that’s his field, that’s what they do… It would hurt my feelings if I saw like Bill Burr at Sunday Service.
‘And I’m like what the f*** Bill? He’d be like, find God Petey, go f*** yourself. Yeezus.’
It was previously revealed that during the first night of the festival at The Hollywood Bowl, Pete opened his set addressing how Kanye had spread a rumor he had AIDS.
He joked that he was convinced by the claims because Kanye ‘is a genius.’
The comedian also noted how surreal it was to be humiliated by the hitmaker when he did have way to stop the online abuse.
Kanye’s social media tirades about him seemed to have traumatized Pete. He recalled seeing a basketball game in December of last year while seated between Jon Stewart and Chris Rock.
Pete referred to that relatively calm period as the ‘before time.’

‘Before life was over,’ he continued, adding that Chris faced his own public humiliation when Will Smith slapped him on stage at the Oscars after he referenced his wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s hair, which she shaves to hide bald spots from alopecia.
The King Of Staten Island star compared the incident to when a claymation stand-in for himself got its head cut off by a figure resembling West in the rapper’s music video for Eazy.
Unlike Kanye, who publicly disowned and insulted his former friend and collaborator Kid Cudi for being friends with Pete, the comic said he didn’t hold it against his friend Jack Harlow for working with West.
He added jokingly that his friendship with Bill Burr — the comedian who costarred with him in The King Of Staten Island — would be over if he ever attended one of Kanye’s Sunday Service ceremonies.
In addition to falsely claiming that Pete had AIDS, Kanye spread rumors that the comedian was gay and hooked on drugs, according to Page Six.
After a series of blistering posts insulting Pete earlier this year, Kanye largely went quiet on social media after he and Kim were declared legally single in March.
Sources told Page Six that the rapper told his ex that ‘he’s going away to get help.’
‘For the sake of the kids, Kanye has told Kim he’s not making any public appearances or inflammatory social media statements, and he will go away somewhere to get better,’ a source close to the Kardashians star said.
