The vet Pete Davidson made fun of on ‘SNL’ is not letting him get away that easy!
Pete Davidson made a joke that didn’t go over well last week and the war veteran confronted him on his own stomping grounds.
The former Navy SEAL, Lt. Com. Dan Crenshaw, lost his right eye to an IED in Afganistan and is currently running for Congress. This was all free reign for Davidson as he referenced what happened to Crenshaw as material for jokes last Saturday.
“You may be surprised to learn he’s a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hitman in a porno movie,” Davidson said during the late night show’s “Weekend Update” segment.
“I’m sorry — I know he lost his eye in war or whatever,” he giggled.
He was later slammed by Crenshaw and many others for his “absolutely disgusting” comments.
Davidson made an effort to apologize for the failed joke Saturday and just as he admitted to being a “d*ck”, the butt of his joke made a surprise appearance. Crenshaw pulled up a chair right next to the comedian and responded to Davidson with, “You think?”
The light-hearted segment continued as Crenshaw took out his revenge and even let his cell phone ring without answering, which played Davidson’s ex-fiancée Ariana Grande’s new single.
The segment wrapped up with Crenshaw stressing the importance of Veteran’s Day and to greet veterans with the phrase “never forget”. He then mentioned Davidson’s father who was a firefighter. He passed away when Pete was seven.
