‘SNL’: Dan Crenshaw Accepts Pete Davidson’s Apology For Controversial Joke

He added, "Can you imagine being Pete Davidson's mom? it cant be easy having everyone mad at your son and roommate".

Appearing once again on Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update", Davidson started out his segment by admitting that he'd made a major error by picking on Lt. Cmdr.

On the November 3 episode of SNL, Davidson showed a picture of Crenshaw, a former Navy SEAL who lost an eye in Afghanistan, saying, "You may be surprised to hear he's a congressional candidate in Texas and not a hitman in a porno movie".

At that moment, Crenshaw, seated in a rolling chair, came flying onto the set and rammed into Davidson, where he quipped, "Ya think?"

Days after the show, the Texas Republican was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. This week, Crenshaw joined Davidson on the show, where the congressman-elect accepted an apology from the comedian during "Weekend Update".

"In what I'm sure was a huge shock to people who know me, I made a poor choice last week", Davidson said. It was a poor choice of words.


It was good and genuine; he called Crenshaw a war hero who deserves "all the respect in the world". And if any good came of this, maybe it was that for one day the left and the right finally came together to agree on something: "I'm a dick". But then he turned more serious to note that from this incident, they learned Americans can forgive one another, and since it was Veterans' Day weekend he wanted everyone to connect with a veteran.

Next it was Crenshaw's turn.

A second later, Crenshaw's phone rang, and an Ariana Grande song set as his ringtone blared loudly. Crenshaw took the original jab in stride and parlayed it into a high profile TV appearance.

"Tell a veteran, 'Never forget, '" Crenshaw said. And then, "He looks like Martin Short in 'The Santa Clause 3.' By the way, one of these people was actually good on 'SNL'".

"This is Pete Davidson".
