During the special, he spoke about the scandal of his SNL joke regarding Texas politician Dan Crenshaw in 2018, and his apology at the time for mocking the veteran for wearing an eyepatch.

The joke was that he was “surprised he’s a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hitman in a porno movie.”

“It was a very harmless Saturday Night Live joke. I didn’t think anything of it,” he said in the special.

“The only thing I don’t like is people are, like, ‘It’s your fault that guy won’ and that’s not true. I think like most of the votes were in and that guy is a Republican with an eye patch in Texas. So it was a lock before it even started,” he went on the explain, adding that he received death threats and was forced to apologize by his mother.

“The only thing I did do, which I am guilty of and I apologized for, is I did make that guy famous, and a household name for no reason. I did what Ariana Grande did for me.”

“I wasn’t going to do jokes about this, but then my buddy told me, he’s like, ‘Yo, I recently heard that Ariana said she had no idea who you were and she just dated you as a distraction. So now I just think it’s like fair game,” he went on to say.

“She won Billboard’s Woman of the Year, and I got called ‘butthole eyes’ by barstoolsports.com,” he joked.

He also revealed in a recent interview that he might leave SNL for this reason…

Pete Davidson Might Leave 'SNL' & Isn't Happy With How He's Treated By Co-Workers

Pete Davidson is revealing that his days on Saturday Night Live might be numbered.

“I personally think I should be done with that show because they make fun of me on it,” Pete said during an interview with Charlamagne Tha God.

“But I’m like cold open political punchlines. I’m Weekend Update jokes. … When I’m not there, they’ll be like ‘Pete’s a f*cking jerkface.’ It’s like, whose side are you on? I have a weird feeling in that building where I don’t know whose team they’re playing for. If I’m the joke or I’m in on the joke. I really wanted last year to be my last year, but I’m still around,” he continued. “If I’m just fodder now, though, maybe I just shouldn’t be there. They think I’m f*cking dumb, like I’m literally painted out to be this big dumb idiot.”

“I just feel like I’ve done as much as I can over there,” he added.

If you missed it, in that very same interview, Pete dished with why his relationships with Kaia Gerber and Kate Beckinsale ended.
