SNL veteran Kenan Thompson stopped by the Today Show to give his thoughts on co-star Pete Davidson's joke during the weekly segment, "Weekend Update". Davidson cracked jokes about various government officials appearances, which included the War Veteran, Dan Crenshaw, who served during the battle with Afghanistan.
"You may be surprised to hear he’s a congressional candidate in Texas and not a hitman in a porno movie. I’m sorry, I know he lost his eye in war, or whatever. Whatever.”
Kenan says, "definitely missed the mark. I think he was more so commenting on the fact that the joke maybe didn’t land as hard as he wanted to as opposed to being like I don’t care about veterans.”
Pete Davidson has been going through a rough patch as of late, as news of his engagement with pop star Ariana Grande spread like wildfire. To make matters worse, Grande dropped her newest single "Thank U, Next", 30 minutes before her ex-fiance was to star in his comedy show. And fans were quick to know that this was obviously about him, amongst others.
