D.L. Hughley is not beefing up his security after Kanye West threatened to send an army of goons to hurt him.

Kanye, aka Ye, recently called out Hughley in a series of social media posts after the comedian discussed the rap producer "stalking" Kim Kardashian in a VladTV interview.

Kanye, 44, was annoyed that his ex allowed his 8-year-old daughter, North West to express her affection for another little girl on TikTok.

Ye has made it clear that he doesn't want his minor children on social media.

Later, Kanye took to social media and called Hughley a "pawn" before adding, "I can afford to hurt u."

"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."

Hughley, 59, responded to Kanye's idle threats via Twitter:

"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? 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 another tweet, Hughley said:

"Ain't no way in hell I'd ever be scared of a dude who wears #IKnowWhatDidLastSummerBoots!!!" and "#Kanye!! It's just too bad that you acting like a nut won't stop #Pete from bustin one!!"

Meanwhile, Pete Davidson, 28, who reunited with 41-year-old Kim last week after a brief hiatus, taunted Kanye in a series of text messages.

The SNL comic told Kanye to "stop being a little internet bitch boy" in a tense text exchange that was leaked on Sunday.
