I wonder if NBC will give him the Roseanne Barr treatment.
tone deaf entertainers“Saturday Night Live” comedian Pete Davidson is drawing fire for poking fun at an eyepatch worn by a Republican war veteran running for Congress.
“This guy’s kinda cool — Dan Crenshaw, You may be surprised to learn he’s a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hitman in a porno movie,” Davidson said during the skit in which he gave “first impressions” of electoral candidates.
“I’m sorry — I know he lost his eye in war or whatever,” he chuckled.
“Good rule in life: I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended. That being said, I hope @nbcsnl recognizes that vets don’t deserve to see their wounds used as punchlines for bad jokes,” tweeted Crenshaw, a retired Navy SEAL who lost an eye in Afghanistan.
He later called the joke “absolutely disgusting.”
