SNL's Pete Davidson's had enough.
Life's been difficult for the comedian, and not just over the past few months.
His father died when he was 7. He contemplated suicide. He was diagnosed with Chron's disease and borderline personality disorder. He dealt with drug abuse and trips to rehab.
Then Ariana Grande ended their engagement.
Ariana's long-term ex-boyfriend Mac Miller's death made her reconsider their relationship. Crippled with grief, she was in no state to plan a wedding.
Soon after the break-up, Pete posted a worrisome message on Instagram, possibly of suicidal nature. Thankfully, he survived the day, and has now returned to stand-up.
Pete's experiences changed his view of comedy and crossing the line. That's why, when a rude audience member in his most recent show made a joke about Mac Miller's death, Pete didn't look past it.
Working with the audience, he kicked him out.
Luckily, TMZ managed to obtain an audio of Pete getting rid of the guy.
Pete Davidson is best known for his SNL skits.Over the past four years, at only 24, he has become one of their most valuable comedians, Variety says. Pete found his voice on the Weekend Update skits, sitting next to anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che.
“I’ll rant, and I listen to it and pick the best chunks," he said.
“He has real support in the audience," said the show’s executive producer Lorne Michaels.“People love him." Pete is known for his dark jokes, which he often draws from the worst times in his life.
At just 7 years old, he lost his firefighter dad in the 9/11 attacks.
He went to rehab twice, where he found out he also suffered from borderline personality disorder.Variety that “with new medication, he’s stable (and smoking again)." “The last few years have been real rough with me," he said.
“I took all these mental health classes and really spent a lot of time getting me good."
Back then, his jokes were already very personal and based on his life.
But it was from the moment he got engaged to the queen of pop, Ariana Grande, that every person in the world knew his name.Variety that he’d never planned to get married. “I never thought I’d meet anyone like her," he explained.
“I can’t even put into words how great of a person she is. I could cry. She’s the f—ing coolest, hottest, nicest person I’ve ever met."
But the dream collapsed when Ariana ended their engagement.NME says, did he return to doing stand-up.
Not long after the split, Pete raised concern when he posted on Instagram, saying he didn’t “want to be on this earth anymore."
All of these experiences and dealing with them in the public eye changed Pete’s sense of humor.Daily Mail says, Pete’s jokes went from grim and ironic to deeper and much more thoughtful.
One example of the insensitive “gallows Pete" was his roast of Justin Bieber on Comedy Central, 2015.Variety, the network had to edit out some of the jokes he made about late actor Paul Walker who died in a car crash in 2013.
This is what he said about Bieber that triggered everyone listening.
The crowd booed in response.
It seems Pete has learned from his mistakes, developing a better sense of what’s appropriate and what’s not.
Mac Miller’s death.Alt Press reports, Mac Miller’s cause of death was revealed: accidental overdose.
The L.A. County Coroner’s Office issued a toxicology report.
He died at just 26.
The news were especially devastating to his long-term ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande.Alt Press also says the rapper left an EP for his fans before his unexpected death. “The artist recorded two singles for a new Spotify session called Spotify Singles."
“The two-song EP was officially released back in November with a slowed down, version of his track “Dunno" from 2018’s Swimming."
So when Pete heard the audience member make such an insensitive joke about Miller’s death, he wasn’t going to just let it go.
