Following reports that comedian Pete Davidson has canceled his anticipated space trip with Blue Origin, the public are demanding an unlikely replacement – his love rival Kanye West. The social media campaign is coming amid the well-received tiff of the two celebrities That began after Davidson started dating Ye’s estranged wife Kim Kardashian.
The 28-year-old “Saturday Night Live” star was originally scheduled to take off with Jeff Bezos aerospace company on a low orbit Earth flight on March 23. However, Blue Origin recently announced it would be rescheduling the flight to later this month, in conflict with the star’s schedule. While no specific reason was ever given, the date change forced Davidson to abort his first space flight.
“Blue Origin’s 20th flight on New Shepard has been rescheduled to Tuesday, March 29.” wrote the company. “Pete Davidson can no longer join the NS-20 crew on this mission.
They added: “We will announce the sixth crew member in the coming days.”
Social media was quick to suggest that West, 44, take his place.
Geekwire editor Alan Boyle shared a story about Davidsons grounding with the comment: “I wonder if @kanyewest is available…”
“Get Kanye on the phone!” seconded “Complex” pop culture writer Karla Rodriguez of the “Jesus Walks” singer.
Jake Eichstaedt athletic director of ABC affiliate WWAY approached West directly on Twitter and told him To make it possible.”
It is unlikely that this idea will actually take off. In any case, the cancellation comes as a major blow to Davidson, who, had he embarked on the journey, would have joined a select circle of celebrities who flew into space on Blue Origin, including Michael Strahan, William Shatner and even Bezos himself.
Earlier this month was Page Six the first to report that Davidson had off-planet ambitions, while the comedian and his girlfriend Kim Kardashian did was spotted at the Bezos compound in Los Angeles in January.f

Since then, West has repeatedly slammed the prankster on Instagramand even released a controversial music video in which he kidnapped and decapitates Davidson’s claymation double.
The spit really picked up speed last week afterwards Davidson shared screenshots of a text war he reportedly had with the Grammy winner.
At one point, West had asked, “Where are you right now?” “In bed with your wife,” Davidson replied, alongside a selfie of himself under the covers.
Meanwhile on Wednesday The hip-hopper was booted from Instagram for 24 hours after stalking KardashianDavidson and Trevor Noah on the social media platform.
Despite frequent online harassment, West’s ex Julia Fox claims the “I Thought About Killing You” singer poses no threat to Kardashian or Davidson.
“Kanye is harmless. I just think that’s his artistic creative expression,” the Uncut Gems actress pointed out in reference to West’s social media salvo. “I know it’s aggressive, but I think if it really matters, I don’t think Kanye would harm a fly.”
