Steve Harvey comes to DL Hughley’s defense after his argument with Kanye West.
The comedian spoke out against Ye after his treatment of Kim Kardashian. In a recent interview, Hughley accused Ye of “stalking” his ex and questioned his sanity, prompting Ye to fire back with a threatening message.
“DL Hughley is a pawn,” Ye wrote in a now-deleted post. “Yes, I know a king that isn’t supposed to address a pawn, but I address everything and find addresses, DL. So don’t talk about me or my kids, I can afford to hurt you.”
Now Steve Harvey weighs in, warning Ye there could be consequences after threatening his friend and fellow comedian.
“Hold on, it’s not what you want,” the 65-year-old comedian said during an episode of The Steve Harvey Morning Show. “If you guys come to scrap all my money on DL because you guys have no idea. You were a small, politically and socially committed rapper. We from an era of asses. We from a completely different era.”
Harvey hinted there could be trouble if he went against him. “Yeah, come on man, back,” he continued. “Why are you going to DL? DL is not your problem. Don’t go out there.”
During their heated exchange, Ye drove Hughley crazy about his fashion. “This grown man chose this outfit himself. Is he influential or under the influence???” He wrote in one post, prompting Hughley to reply, “#Kanye how dare you talk about how someone dresses look at you!! All these people in your head and none of them have a Macy’s card?”
In another tweet, Hughley mentioned Kim’s new boyfriend, Pete Davidson. “#Kanye, do you know how awful you must be to go on a #kardashian date with a white man!”

During his social media outbursts, Ye also went after Trevor Noah after he criticized Ye’s “harassment” of Kim Kardashian. Ye changed the lyrics to “Kumbaya” to include a racial slur aimed at the Daily Show host, prompting Instagram to ban him from posting and commenting for 24 hours.
Meanwhile, Ye’s friends, including The Game and French Montana, have spoken out amid his Instagram lockdown.
