Dan Crenshaw Speaks Out After Pete Davidson Takes Back His Apology for 'SNL' Joke: 'It's a Little Sad'

Dan Crenshaw is speaking out after Pete Davidson took back his apology for his 2018 Saturday Night Live joke about the politician.

In his recent Netflix special, Pete said: “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.”

Dan appeared on Fox & Friends to discuss the headline-making bit on Friday (February 28).

“I can’t get out of Pete Davidson‘s head. He’s been — he’s been thinking about me a lot for the past year as he builds this comedy routine, apparently. I’m not so sure his jokes always land, but it is what it is. It’s like our comedic careers are joined at the hip because he can’t stop thinking about me. It’s a little sad,” he said.

He also said the two had a “really good moment” when he appeared on SNL after the joke.

“America liked it. The left and right liked it. So, you know, we don’t really want to ruin that.”

“To be fair, if we took everything that comedians said on a Netflix special seriously, man our country would be in a world of hurt. I would like to remember the guy that I saw in person and hung out with that night,” he went on to say.

“The Pete Davidson I remember, you know, he went out to buy some cigarettes while we were rehearsing, and came back because he had found this lighter that said ‘Never Forget’ on it and he gave that to me as a gesture. He said this was kind of cool that this happened to come up as he was buying cigarettes.”

Pete Davidson Takes Back His Apology to Dan Crenshaw & Throws In a Dig at Ex Ariana Grande in Netflix Comedy Specal

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…

Chris Evans Approves of Rep. Dan Crenshaw's 'Captain America' Glass Eye

Chris Evans took a trip to Washington, D.C. this week and he met up with Rep Dan Crenshaw, who showed the actor his Captain America glass eye!

The Texas congressman lost an eye while serving in Afghanistan and he normally wears an eye patch. He removed the patch to show off the glass eye to Evans.

“When Captain America sees your Captain America glass eye,” Crenshaw tweeted with the photos.

Chris replied and said, “A VERY cool use of vibranium.”

Last year, Crenshaw appeared on SNL to make amends with Pete Davidson after the comedian made a joke that compared the congressman to “a hitman in a porno movie.”

Pete Davidson appeared on Saturday Night Live‘s Weekend Update on Saturday (November 10) to apologize to Congressman-elect Dan Crenshaw.

On last week’s episode, Pete made fun of Crenshaw for wearing an eye patch to cover his missing eye, which he lost during a tour in Afghanistan.

“In what I’m sure was a huge shock for people who know me, I made a poor choice last week,” Pete started off his apology. “I made a joke about Lieutenant Commander Dan Crenshaw and on behalf of the show and myself, I apologize.”

“I mean this from the bottom of my heart, it was a poor choice of words. The man is a war hero and he deserves all the respect in the world and if any good came from this, maybe it’s that for one day, the left and the right finally came together and agreed on something… that I’m a d–k,” he added.

Dan then popped up next to Pete and the comedian apologized again. When Dan said that they were all good, his phone started ringing and played Ariana Grande‘s song “Breathin.” Dan jokingly asked, “Do you know her?”

Pete then gave Dan the chance to make fun of a photo of him and Dan said, “This is Pete Davidson. He looks like if the meth from Breaking Bad is a person. He looks like a troll doll with a tapeworm. Pete looks like Martin Short in The Santa Clause 3. By the way, one of these guys is actually good on SNL.”

In a touching ending to the segment, Dan opened up about bringing the country together on Veterans’ Day weekend and encouraged people to “tell a veteran ‘never forget.’”
