Pete Davidson Didn’t Appear on ‘SNL’ Last Weekend Following Revealing Interview

Pete Davidson wasn’t in any sketches last weekend on Saturday Night Live, not long after he got super candid in an interview with Charlamagne Tha God.

“I have conversations with a lot of people [about leaving],” he told Charlamagne. “It’s a hard thing to do, because you don’t want to ever pull the trigger too early.”

“Here’s the thing: I personally think that I should be done with that show, because they make fun of me on it,” he continued. “I get it, but I’m like, cold-open, political punchlines. I’m like, ‘Weekend Update’ jokes. When I’m not there, they’ll be like, ‘Ha ha ha, Pete’s a f—ing jerk-face.’ And you’re like, ‘Whose side are you on?’”

He added, “I have a weird feeling in that building where I don’t know whose team they’re playing for, really. If I’m the joke or I’m in on the joke.”

Pete joined the show in 2014, and while he said last year was going to be his last, he decided to stay for the sake of its creator Lorne Michaels.

“I just feel like, yeah, I’ve done as much as I can over there,” he said in the interview. “But happy to be there as long as Lorne likes me.”

Hmm… well, it’s sort of a dream job so we say: If you don’t want to be there, then give it to another hopeful!
