Fans React to Pete Davidson Branding Kim Kardashian’s Name on His Chest

Kim Kardashian recently revealed that Pete Davidson got her name branded on his chest, and fans are not OK. Here’s what the reality star said about the brand and Davidson’s “cute” tattoos for her, and how fans are responding. 

Eagle-eyed fans spotted what appeared to be a tattoo of Kim Kardashian’s name on Pete Davidson’s chest

On Mar. 13, screenshots of text messages between Pete Davidson and Kanye West broke the internet. The Saturday Night Live star’s friend Dave Sirus shared the texts in a since-deleted Instagram post. The comedian, who is not on social media, likely gave his friend permission to share the screenshots, as Sirus has posted on Davidson’s behalf in the past.

When the Donda rapper sent a message saying, “Where are you right now?” Davidson replied, “In bed with your wife,” including a shirtless photo of himself in bed, flashing a peace sign and sticking out his tongue.

Eagle-eyed fans noticed that the tattooed comedian appeared to have some very special new ink in the selfie he sent West. It looked like he had “Kim,” his famous girlfriend’s first name, added to his chest.

In a recent interview, Kim Kardashian revealed that her name is permanently branded, not inked, onto Davidson’s skin.

On Mar. 16, Kim Kardashian opened up about Pete Davidson branding himself for her on The Ellen DeGeneres Show

“The ‘Kim’ one isn’t a tattoo, it’s actually a branding,” she explained. “Because, let me explain it, because he wanted to do something that was really different.” Davidson is known for his long list of famous ex-girlfriends, and Kardashian isn’t the first one he has gotten body art for. 

When he dated Ariana Grande, the SNL star got several tattoos to commemorate their love. One was of the singer’s Dangerous Woman era bunny mask, which he inked behind his left ear. After they broke up, he covered the symbol with a black heart. Perhaps he wanted to differentiate his love for Kardashian by getting a brand instead of a tattoo. 

The 41-year-old reality star revealed that Davidson has also gotten “a few” tattoos in her honor, and she has a favorite. “My favorite one, it says, ‘My girl is a lawyer,’” Kardashian shared. “And that one’s really cute.”

Fans are reacting to the comedian branding the reality star’s name on himself

After Kim Kardashian revealed that Pete Davidson got her name branded on his chest, fans were quick to share their thoughts about the comedian’s body art on social media. 

“I remember thinking it was a 🚩 when Pete got Ariana’s bunny ears tattooed on his neck,” one fan tweeted. “Branding Kim’s name on his chest is next level 🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩!!!”

Other fans are attributing the brand to SNL star’s mental health issues, with tweets like, “Okay but Pete Davidson literally branding Kim’s name on his chest… it’s giving BPD for sure lmao.”

“Cute and a little over the top in the love declaration stakes, but Pete and Kanye are doing their mating dances for Kim,” one fan tweeted. “The truck of roses with a decapitation claymation versus Tattoo my name with a branding iron…and the winner is… #love #lovehurts.”

And one fan tweeted, “Can we stop romanticizing branding. It is not ‘cute’ that Pete Davidson carved Kim K’s name into his skin … it is concerning.”
