Houston GOP Congressional candidate Dan Crenshaw lost his eye as a Navy SEAL, but Pete Davidson seems to think it's funny. Now he's being slammed online about what he said. Jump to :60 in the video for what he said.
On "Saturday Night Live" this weekend, Pete did a skit where he gave his "first impressions" of candidates in tomorrow's elections, just by looking at pictures of them.
And he made the really dumb decision to include DAN CRENSHAW, a former Navy SEAL who lost his eye serving in Afghanistan in 2012, and now wears an eyepatch.
Pete said he looks like, quote, "a hitman in a porno movie," which, I mean, who cares, right? But then he added, quote, "I'm sorry, I know he lost his eye in war, or whatever. Whatever." (Here's video.)
The National Republican Congressional Committee demanded an apology, and Crenshaw Tweeted that he's not easily offended, but, quote, "vets don't deserve to see their wounds used as punchlines for bad jokes." (He also spoke to TMZ.)
At the end of the segment, Pete switched gears and addressed the ARIANA GRANDEsituation. He said, quote, "I know some of you are curious about the breakup.
"The Truth is it's nobody's business, and sometimes things just don't work out, and that's okay. She's a wonderful, strong person, and I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world."
It sounds like Pete was trying to make amends after he upset Ariana with that "Saturday Night Live" promo last week.
