Dan Crenshaw Says Pete Davidson Doesn't Owe Him an Apology

SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE-'Seth Meyers Episode 1749

Crenshaw, who wears an eye patch after losing his eye in the Helmand Province in Afghanistan, said he wouldn't demand an apology.

However, Crenshaw went on to offer some comedy advice to Davidson.

Republican Dan Crenshaw, a Navy SEAL who did five tours of duty, is running for Congress in Texas' 2nd district.

"This guy is kinda cool, Dan Crenshaw", Davidson said on this weekend's show, next to a photo of Crenshaw.

His co-host, Michael Che, chuckled and said, "Yo, come on".

"Hold on", Davidson told him.

"I'm sorry - I know he lost his eye in war or whatever", he chuckled.

When asked about the matter on Sunday, an NBC representative said the network would not be commenting.

Taylor was assigned to Utah Army National Guard Element, Joint Force Headquarters, Draper , Utah. His last Facebook post , on October 28, highlighted a successful election in Afghanistan.

Several members of the public immediately demanded that Davidson apologize.

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) released a statement on Sunday demanding an apology from Davidson.

Pete Davidson has garnered some criticism after insulting a conservative politician who lost an eye during his military service on Saturday's episode of "SNL". PC to insult wounded vets?!?

Crenshaw responded to the joke on social media, writing, "Good rule in life: I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended".

Neither Davidson nor NBC has issued a formal apology to Crenshaw, although the comedian did poke fun at his own looks in the same segment in which he mocked Crenshaw.

"We need to stop thousands of people from illegally crossing from one side of our border to the other", he said. I don't need to demand apologies from them.

"I know some of you are curious about the breakup, but the truth is, it's nobody's business, and sometimes things just don't work out and that's okay. Right? It was not original, it was not amusing, it was just mean-spirited and that's how I feel about it", Crenshaw told TMZ, according to Fox News. And here's the real atrocity in all this: "it wasn't even amusing".
