Wounded Veteran Congressman Mocks Pete Davidson On SNL


Wounded Veteran Congressman Mocks Pete Davidson On SNL

Dan Crenshaw, a veteran who lost an eye while serving in the U.S. military, showed up on Saturday Night Live to accept an apology from Pete Davidson last night.

But he mocked the comedian by using a phone ringtone from Ariana Grande, Davidson’s ex-fiancee, on the live broadcast!

As Radar readers know, Davidson, 24, came under a firestorm of controversy when he joked during SNL’s last show about Crenshaw missing an eye.

Incredibly, Davidson, who recently had a bitter breakup from Grande, gave his thoughts on the midterm elections on November 3’s SNL.

When it came to Republican congressional candidate Dan Crenshaw — who wears an eye patch because he lost his eye in Afghanistan — Davidson joked that he looked like a “hitman from a porno.”

Davidson lamely added on camera, “I’m sorry, I know he lost his eye in war or whatever.” Amid nervous laughs from the audience, he added, “Whatever.”

The funnyman tried to apologize but the backlash was swift and even his co-star, Kenan Thompson— whose dad is a veteran — said that he “definitely missed the mark.”

Last night, the NBC variety show brought now congressman-elect Crenshaw, 34, on the “Weekend Update” segment to get an in-person apology.

“In what I’m sure was a huge shock to people who know me, I made a poor choice last week,” Davidson said.

He called Crenshaw a “war hero” and said that he “deserves all the respect in the world,” and thanked him for appearing on SNL.

“Thanks for making a Republican look good,” Crenshaw responded.

Davidson then personally apologized to Crenshaw and asked if they were “good.”

“We’re good. Apology accepted,” Crenshaw said.

But then, his phone rang with a ringtone from a song by Davidson’s ex-fiancee, Grande!

As Radar reported, Davidson and the singer called off their engagement on October 13 weekend.

Grande’s split from Davidson was messy and she played hardball with him, kicking him out of her $16 million NYC pad and blocking his number, a source told Radar.

Davidson has referred to his breakup on SNL.

Last night SNL, Crenshaw asked Davidson on the late night show, “Do you know her?”

The vet-turned-politician then poked fun at the actor further, saying, “This is Pete Davidson. He looks like if the meth from ‘Breaking Bad’ was a person.”

Crenshaw also said that Davidson looked like a “Troll doll with a tapeworm” as the SNL studio crowd laughed.

Seriously, though, Texas Republican Crenshaw added, “There’s a lot of lessons to learn here. Not just that the left and the right can still agree on some things, but that also that Americans can forgive one another. We can remember what brings us together as a country and still see the good in each other.”

Crenshaw asked every American to “connect with” a veteran for Veteran’s Day on Sunday.
