Kim is said to have “vehemently defended” Pete and “won’t condone that type of behavior” from her ex-husband, the source told Dailymail.com of the post, which Kanye later removed.

‘Appalling’: Kim, 41, on Monday found Kanye’s Instagram post – a picture of a fake New York Times newspaper with the caption ‘Skete Davidson dead at 28’ – ‘appalling’
Kanye’s Monday post also included a line that read, “Kid Cudi wanted to play funeral but was scared of bottle throwers.”
This was in reference to an incident where concert-goers at the Rolling Loud Miami festival in July threw water bottles at Kid Cudi, 38, whose friendship with Pete is the source of hard feelings between him and Kanye.
Both Kim and Pete’s reps contacted Instagram to report the post, a source told People, noting that “his team and Kim’s have repeatedly reached out to Instagram to help make the platform a safer space.”
Pete has been “absent on social media” due to frequent attacks from West, an insider told the outlet.
In March, Kanye released a claymation video for his track Eazy, in which he depicted himself committing acts of violence against a character resembling Pete.
