“Thank you… for never giving up on me”

On Saturday night, Pete Davidson stopped by the Weekend Update desk for the last time to say goodbye and talk about how unlikely he would ever become one of SNL’s most famous cast members.

“Hi Colin and Che and millions of people just watching if I mention Kanye,” Davidson began, referring to his very public feud with girlfriend Kim Kardashian’s ex.

“I never thought this would be my life,” he said, describing the 20-year-old, who joined the show in 2014, as “a skinny kid and no one knew what race I was.” He then joked, “Now everyone knows I’m white because I became tremendously successful even though I barely showed up for work.”

Reflecting on how much the cast has changed over his seven seasons, Davidson said, “In three years, Fox News hasn’t called me a monster for making fun of Congressman Dan Crenshaw’s eyepatch, they’ve called it themselves.” also made fun of his eye patch.”

“Tucker Carlson called him ‘Eyepatch McCain,'” he explained. “It’s two veterans in one insult! Gee, Colin, your dad sucks.”

“To be fair with what I said because obviously it still bothers me I was just making a joke about someone’s looks not knowing that the medical condition behind it is a sensitive issue, which is a SNL Alumni tradition,” when the photo of Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars emerged behind him, causing the crowd to groan. “On the one hand, I don’t like that people think they can just run on stage and smack a comedian. But on the other hand, it tells me that all my shows are going to be sold out now.”

Davidson explained that when he first auditioned SNLHer producer Lorne Michaels told him, “I don’t think you’re the right person for this show, so let’s screw this up together.”

“And that’s exactly what we did,” Davidson said. “And that’s why people who think I don’t deserve the job shouldn’t hate me because we have so much in common. If anything, I should encourage hope that literally everyone can be there Saturday night live. Seriously, you see a guy bumming cigarettes in front of a 7-Eleven at 2 a.m., that’s not a meth head, ‘That’s the next Pete Davidson!'”

He got visibly emotional as he ended things with a thank you SNL for “always standing behind me and allowing me to work on myself and grow.”

“And thanks to Lorne for never giving up on me and never judging me even when everyone else was,” Davidson continued. “And for believing in me and allowing me to have a place to call home with memories that can last a lifetime.”
