“Saturday Night Live” cast member Pete Davidson has taken to social media to remember his father Scott Davidson, a New York City firefighter who died in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center.
True to form, the comedian started off his tribute with an inappropriate joke.
“Can’t believe its been 14 years. I remember seeing ur gigantic dick like it was just yesterday. RIP Dad #NeverForget,” he posted on Twitter along with an image of himself as a child posing with his father in front of a fire truck.
Davidson was seven years old on the day of the attacks. His father was one of 343 firefighters with the New York City Fire Department (FDNY) who were killed on 9/11.
“All jokes aside. There’s not a day that goes by where I dont think of u,” he continued while posting more images. “Ur my hero. Cant wait to see u again someday.”
Earlier this year, Davidson brought up his father’s death during Comedy Central’s “Roast of Justin Bieber.”
“I lost my father on 9/11, and I always regretted growing up without a father,” he said. “Until I met your dad, Justin. Now I’m glad mine’s dead.”
