Pete Davidson joined the cast of Saturday Night Live in 2014 and became one of its most recognizable faces. Now, after eight years of entertaining the fans on the hit show, Pete bid adieu to the platform that turned him into a star.
The 28-year-old’s final performance on the show took place last night and even featured a surprise appearance from Eminem that found him dissing the comedian’s past parodies of his songs. This falls in line with the content that Davidson has been pumping out for years.
The Staten Island native even parodied Em’s 2001 hit, “Forgot About Dre,” renaming it, “Forgot About Lorne” as a tribute to SNL creator Lorne Michaels. Unfortunately, the skit didn’t make it to the show due to time constraints.
Eminem appeared towards the end of the skit to tell Pete Davidson that he should stop making parody videos. “Pete, what are you doing, man?” the 49-year-old asked the comedian. Obviously that is going to likely happen since Skete is leaving SNL.
“It’s another parody, it’s like another tribute or something?” the “8 Mile” star continued. “Yeah, it’s like the third one,” Davidson replied. Without mincing his words, Em replied while begging Pete to stop.
“I would just stop. They all suck. Please just stop, it’s really bad… Pete, don’t f*cking do it again.”
Elsewhere on the show, Pete Davidson reflected on his career during the Weekend Update sketch. He even wrote a heartfelt statement to viewers before the episode. You can check out his final parody for the show down below.
