Kanye West has said he “can afford to hurt” D.L. Hughley, and now Steve Harvey has issued a warning to leave his friend alone.
Hughley found himself the target of Kanye’s ire after he suggested Yeezy’s behavior on Instagram, which wound up getting him suspended for 24 hours on Wednesday, was worrisome. He said Ye was “stalking” his ex Kim Kardashian, who’s now with SNL star Pete Davidson. Ye threatened Hughley, and ripped into his style and career choices in some follow-ups.
During a new episode of the Steve Harvey Morning Show, the host issued his own threat for clowning his friend.
“Pull up, it ain’t what you want. If y’all do get to scrapping, all my cash on D.L., cause you have no idea. You been a lil politically, socially conscious rapper—we from a ass-whoopin’ era. … We from a whole ’nother era,” the 65-year-old said. Hughley is 59; Ye is 44.
