Pete Davidson calls out SNL for making fun of him

Pete Davidson shared his candid thoughts on the jokes that were made about him during his time at SNL.

pete joined snl in 2014 when he was just 20 years old, making him one of the youngest cast members in the show’s history. He left the sketch show after eight seasons, during which his personal life was frequently the subject of jokes.

“Suddenly you’re in this zeitgeist and it has nothing to do with work,” he said. continued. “And that’s a really horrible feeling. I became more well known before the work was there, but I was always working. I’m fine with the joke. I understand the late-night jokes.”

Directing your attention to snl, explained: “When your own show (makes fun of you)…I would be sitting in the back watching the cold open up and…the cold open up (is) current affairs, political humor, whatever it is that there is in the culture. And then make fun of you. Then you have to go out and do a sketch below and hit the mark and the show will mock you.”

“Then why are they going to laugh at you? Like they just chase you in front of everyone,” he added. “And you’re like, ‘I’m a fucking loser, man.'”

“These are the people I have been with for almost a decade. I grew up with these people. They have watched me through the most difficult time of my life and have been there for me. And nobody showed me more freedom and grace than Lorne Michaels, and I owe my life to that guy.”

“But it was fucking confusing because the nature of entertainment is the nature of this business. At the end of the day, that’s what it is. This was a really hard thing to do. You feel small. You feel super insecure.” He concluded.

It is not the first time that Pete has publicly opposed SNL’s representation of him. “Personally, I think I should end that show because they make fun of me,” she said in 2020. “If I’m just fodder now though, maybe I just shouldn’t be on it. They think I’m fucking dumb, like I’m literally painted to be a big dumb jerk.”
