Pete Brings Up Kanye
The Saturday Night Live star Peter Michael Davidson bid adieu to his show during the Season 47 finale. And, Pete did it in style. He said, “Hello Colin, and Che — and millions of people seeing if I’ll bring up Kanye.” Pete referred to his girlfriend Kim Kardashian‘s ex-husband Kanye West. Well, it seems like, Ye is not the only one who is known for mocking Pete and Kardashian for a very long time.
If you don’t know this, like Ye, Pete Davidson has had issues with mental health too. He revealed it as he made his final appearance on SNL’s Weekend Update by stating that Kanye should continue taking medication. He also joked by saying, “if I was on a plane and the pilot went like this is the real me!”
If you remember, In Davison’s newly released special, the actor talks about how Kanye west trolled him by “confessing” he had AIDS. In a clip released by Netflix, he starts by saying “I had an AIDS scare this year,” After Pete went to the doctor it turned out that “he only looked like he had Aids” according to the stand-up skit.
He added, “If anything, I should inspire hope that literally anyone could be on Saturday Night Live. Seriously, you see a guy bumming cigarettes outside a 7-Eleven at 2 a.m., that’s not some meth head, that’s the next Pete Davidson.”
In the end, Pete stated that “I appreciate SNL always having my back and allowing me to work on myself and grow. Thank you to Lorne for never giving up on me or judging me even when everyone else was, believing in me and allowing me to have a place that I can call home with memories that will last a lifetime. So thank you, guys.”
Well, this is not the end for Kim Kardashian’s newfound love. Davidson’s career is still skyrocketing as he is set to appear in A24’s upcoming horror-comedy Bodies Bodies Bodies, romcom Meet Cute alongside Kaley Cuoco and Peacock’s Bupkis, a fictionalized comedy based on Davidson’s life starring Edie Falco as his mother. Pete, SNL was just too much fun with you and you’ll truly be missed. Thanks for all the laughter!
