Pete Davidson shared his thoughts on Ariana Grande's "Thank U, Next," recounting the "sad day" it was released
On New Year’s Eve, Pete Davidson performed at the Chevalier Theatre just outside of Boston in Medford, Massachusetts. According to E! Online, a source claims that he discussed everything from his breakup with Ariana Grande to his thoughts on her single, “Thank U, Next,” which she released just minutes before an episode of Saturday Night Live began.
“Here’s the thing about the breakup song. Usually breakup songs, you know who it’s about, but you don’t really know. That G named all of us. Bam. She named all of us. And then, tells us, ‘Yeah, he has a big dick,'” Davidson said, E! Online reports. “That shit came out before I had to put on a fucking duck hat and be like, ‘Derrrp here’s the pizza!’ So all my friends were there. It was a sad day. We didn’t know it was going to happen.”
Davidson also reportedly joked about Louis C.K, and his take on the disgraced comedian was appropriately savage.
Less than a year after apologizing for masturbating in front of women without their consent, C.K. returned to the stage to try out some new material. Leaked audio from a December 16th show revealed that C.K. made horribly offensive remarks about topics like gender-neutral pronouns and the Parkland school shooting survivors.
Oh, and here’s the kicker: “That joke used to be about Aziz Ansari, but Aziz has been nice to me recently,” Davidson reportedly added for good measure.
There is nothing—NOTHING—funny about using homophobic language and joking about school shooting survivors. But sometimes, comedy is just the thing to help us heal. Thanks for the laugh, Pete.
