Pete Davidson Early Life

Peter Michael Davidson was born on November 16, 1993, in Staten Island, New York City, to Amy and Scott Matthew Davidson. His father, Scott, was a New York firefighter who unfortunately died in service during the 9/11 attacks and was last seen while he was running up the stairs of the Marriott World Trade Center right before it collapsed to the ground. His Requiem Mass was held at St. Clare’s Roman Catholic Church in Great Kills, Staten Island.

When his father died, Davidson, was just seven years old and was deeply affected by the death. The trauma was too much for him and it resulted in him acting out at school, going as far as to rip his hair off till he was bald. In October of 2016, on The Breakfast Club radio show, Davidson revealed that when he was young, he had battled suicidal tendencies and that it was Kid Cudi’s music that really saved him from himself.  Pete also has a younger sister named Casey, with who he was raised.

He attended St. Joseph by-the-Sea High School, which was followed by Tottenville High School before moving on to Brooklyn’s Xaverian High School, from where he graduated in 2011. Then he attended St. Francis College in Brooklyn Heights. However, after his one semester was complete, Davidson decided that he wanted to pursue a career in comedy instead. The first time he did stand-up comedy was when he was sixteen years old. A group of his friends who knew that Pete was into comedy, dared him to take the stage at the Staten Island bowling alley.

Pete Davidson Controversies

Catholic Church: In March of 2019, an apology was demanded from Davidson by The Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn after David compared the Catholic Church to R. Kelly, who had been accused of pedophilia, in an SNL sketch. In the sketch, Davidson also made a note that “[Kelly] is a monster and he should go to jail forever. But if you support the Catholic Church, isn’t that like the same thing as being an R. Kelly fan? I don’t really see the difference, except for one’s music is significantly better.” The diocese did not take this comparison lightly and posted a statement on its website stating that the skit was “disgraceful and offensive.” Furthermore, it added, “The faithful of our Church are disgusted by the harassment by those in news and entertainment, and this sketch offends millions. The mockery of this difficult time in the Church’s history serves no purpose.” 

Dan Crenshaw: Dan Crenshaw is a Republican congressional candidate who wears an eyepatch as a result of a wound he received while he was serving as a U.S. Navy SEAL in Afghanistan. Davidson mocked him by comparing Crenshaw to “a hitman in a porno movie” and further went on to say, “I’m sorry, I know he lost his eye in war or whatever.” The public was outraged and so in order to tone the heat down, Crenshaw made an appearance alongside Davidson on SNL ‘Weekend Update’ segment, where Davidson apologized to Crenshaw by saying, “I mean this from the bottom of my heart: it was a poor choice of words … the man is a war hero, and he deserves all the respect in the world.” Crenshaw accepted Davidson’s apology as well as paid tribute to Davidson’s father, a firefighter who had been killed during the 9/11 attacks.

However, in 2020, in his show “Alive from New York,” Davidson took back the apology that he had issued to Crenshaw, saying that he only apologized because he was told to do so. Davidson went on to tell the audience, “I didn’t think I did anything wrong. It was like words that were twisted so that a guy could be famous. So I made fun of this guy with an eye patch, and then, like, I kind of got forced to apologize.” Crenshaw later responded that he had hoped that the apology made by Pete was sincere, “you can never tell with comedians” and further added, “To be fair, if we took everything that comedians said on a Netflix special seriously, man, our country would be in a world of hurt. I would like to remember the guy that I saw in person and hung out with that night (on SNL).”

Stalking incident:

In March of 2021, a woman had falsely claimed that she was married to Davidson. It reported that the woman had illegally broken into his home as well as faced legal charges after it.
