Kanye West’s clique is coming to his defense.
Theophilus London came face to face with D.L. Hughley amid Ye’s ongoing feud with the comedian. During a visit to Nobu in Malibu over the weekend, the “Can’t Stop” rapper seemingly approached the comedian’s table while he was dining with friends. In a series of Instagram Stories, London documented the confrontation.
“I told him to apologize on camera for doing that dumb Vlad interview and his people called security,” he wrote, a response to Hughley criticizing Ye amid his divorce from Kim Kardashian.
It’s unclear what was said during the exchange. London posted a photo of Hughley turning around and soundtracked it with Chief Keef’s “Faneto.”
“I pressed this ni**a @realdlhughley,” claimed London, while also taking shots at one of the Kings of Comedy. “Kings of who?” he asked.
However, things didn’t seem to escalate. “I’m a good boy and peace maker tho. Just came to ball on some fish,” he wrote.
“DL Hughley is a pawn,” Ye wrote in a since-deleted post. “Yeah I know a king not supposed to address a pawn but I address everything and find addresses DL So don’t speak on me or my children I can afford to hurt u.”
Hughley received support from Steve Harvey who spoke out in defense of his fellow comedian. “Pull up, it ain’t what you want,” the 65-year-old comedian said on the “Steve Harvey Morning Show.” “If y’all do get to scrapping, all my cash on D.L., ’cause you have no idea. You’ve been a lil politically, socially-conscious rapper. We from a ass-whoopin’ era. We from a whole ‘nother era.”
Ye has not returned to Instagram since he was suspended for 24 hours for violating the platform’s policies on hate speech, bullying, and harassment.
