D.L. Hughley snapped back at Kanye West on Sunday in response to the rapper’s Instagram posts threatening him over the weekend.
The 59-year-old comedian wrote on Instagram that ‘mental health is no joke,’ while adding that it wasn’t acceptable to threaten the ‘safety of a man’s home and family.’
In a since-deleted post, West, 44, wrote that he could find Hughley’s address, adding, ‘I can afford to hurt u.’
Fighting back: D.L. Hughley, 59, tore into Kanye West, 44, on Sunday in an Instagram post and said, ‘Mental health is no joke’, after Kanye threatened to find his ‘address’ and ‘hurt’ him over the weekend; seen in 2016 in NYC
Hughely shared an image on Instagram showing crushed up white medication, along with a photo of the hitmaker and a screenshot of one of his own tweets from earlier on Sunday.
‘Hmmm! Ain’t it weird that #Kanye supposedly has all these goons who will kill for him, but not one of them will get his prescriptions filled?’ he originally wrote in the tweet. ‘Here’s a thought while you’re on your way to kill me in Calabasas, how about somebody drop by CVS and pick up his Xanax! Lol #TeamDl.’
In his follow-up Instagram post, he added, ‘You can tell when people surround themselves with real ones. REAL ONES in your corner would NEVER allow you to threaten a man or his family, especially in a public forum. Mental health is no joke… neither is the safety of a man’s home and family. #TeamDL #KingS***.’

Later on Sunday, Hughley continued his Twitter tirade against the Monster rapper.
‘Ain’t no way in hell I’d ever be scared of a dude who wears #IKnowWhatDidLastSummerBoots [sic]!!!’ he wrote, referencing the bulky black rain boots that West has lately been a fan of.
He took up the taunting another not by bringing West’s ex Kim Kardashian’s new boyfriend Pete Davidson into the mix.
‘#Kanye!! It’s just too bad that you acting like a nut won’t stop #Pete from bustin one!!,’ he joked.
In a since-deleted post, the rapper had previously threatened the TV star and said he could easily find out where he lived.
‘DL Hughley is a pawn 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,’ he wrote.

In a subsequent post — which he also deleted — West posted a video of Hughley collapsing on stage during a stand-up set in June 2020, after he had come down with Covid-19.
‘We gone stop letting practicing drug addicts be used by leftist to Willie Lynch our Future Black people with our own opinion are not allowed to speak in public,’ the producer wrote.
‘I am the glitch DL God does not like you You have no favor Your family hates you I would hate to be related to somebody who used to be famous Now you just known as a broke pawn at least Oprah got billions “allegedly” Come on leftist Y’all gotta do better than DL This Ye Bring the real smoke baby,’ he continued.
Last month, the comic and political commentator had spoke up in Kardashian’s defense amid her ongoing divorce from West.
‘I think that I’ve watched too many times when things like that happened and a woman or somebody is not believed. And then things escalate,’ he told VladTV. ‘He is stalking her. You can think it’s cute. If it was my daughter, I’d do something about it. I don’t think it’s funny.
‘I think that you can’t write a beat so good that you get to do these things,’ he continued. ‘And society laughs it off because they say, “Well, she’s showing her a** all the time and he’s this and he’s that.”‘

During a Fanroom Live session with Chanel Omari from August 2020, which was in the midst of the rapper’s doomed presidential campaign, he said West uses his mental health issues as a excuse when it can benefit him.
‘He’s not so mentally ill that he’ll talk about any other group of people,’ Hughley said. ‘He talks about people that he knows he can get away with, and then he’s not so ill that he’s trying to be a disruptor in the political form. He’s not so ill that he takes $5 million in PPP payments, so he seems to be conveniently ill when it serves his purpose.’
Hughley and West’s feud comes after Kardashian — who filed for divorce in February 2021 — went Instagram official with Davidson earlier this month.
West’s beef with his ex and her boyfriend ratcheted up over the weekend, when he spoke out to criticize her for letting their oldest daughter North West make TikTok videos — which Kim says she supervises.
Text messages allegedly sent by Davidson to West were also leaked, in which the comedian appeared to call Kardashian ‘the best mother I’ve ever met,’ before taunting her ex with a photo of himself in bed, which he said showed him, ‘In bed with your wife.’
The Saturday Night Live star also urged his rival to meet him in person to discuss their differences, rather than airing their dirty laundry in public.
