Crenshaw on 'SNL's' Davidson rescinding apology: 'He can't stop thinking about me'

Rep. Dan CrenshawDaniel CrenshawThis issue will secure a Democratic wipeout in 2022 House Ethics panel dismisses security screening fine issued to GOP lawmaker Juan Williams: The GOP is an anti-America party MORE (R-Texas) responded to "Saturday Night Live" comedian Pete Davidson's recent comments saying that he was "forced to apologize" to the war veteran for mocking the eye patch he wears due to injuries from an explosion in Afghanistan. 

Crenshaw mused that "it's a little sad" Davidson "can't stop thinking" about him.

Davidson rescinded his apology to Crenshaw during his new stand-up special released Tuesday on Netflix, "Alive from New York."

“I didn’t think I did anything wrong. It was like words that were twisted so that a guy could be famous," Davidson, 26, says of Crenshaw, who was elected to Congress in 2018. "So I made fun of this guy with an eye patch and then, like, I kind of got forced to apologize."

"I did make that guy famous and a household name for no reason, right?" Davidson later asks.

Crenshaw told "Fox & Friends" on Friday the two men "had a really good moment" in November 2018 after Davidson apologized to him during an "SNL" skit the following week after mocking his injury. 

"It's like our comedic careers are joined at the hip because he can't stop thinking about me," an amused Crewshaw said Friday of Davidson broaching the incident. "It's a little sad."

"We had a really good moment, you know, at that time in 2018," he continued. "America liked it. The left and right liked it. So, you know, we don't really want to ruin that."

In November 2018, Davidson drew heavy criticism for joking about Crenshaw's injury on a segment during the show called, "Weekend Update."

"This guy is kind of cool, Dan Crenshaw," Davidson said while showing a photo of the Texas Republican wearing an eye patch.

"You may be surprised to hear he's a congressional candidate for Texas and not a hit-man in a porno movie," Davidson added.

"I'm sorry. I know he lost his eye in war or whatever," he added, to laughter from the live studio audience.

"Whatever," Davidson chuckled after the audience response died down.

Crenshaw also cautioned on Friday morning that comedians should not be taken too seriously, because doing so would put the country "in a world of hurt."

"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," he concluded. "I would like to remember the guy that I saw in person and hung out with that night. "
