Supporters behind the upcoming comedian, Pete Davidson, were excited to learn that his position as Saturday Night Live Cast Member isn’t being terminated anytime soon.

Confirmation regarding his continued employment with Saturday Night Live was remarked through Entertainment Tonight. The rising comedian mentioned that he’d continue with SNL for however long that Lorne Michaels desires. He’d note his grateful sentiments & lucky towards remaining on the show while thanking Lorne Michaels for his mentorship over the last six years.
Kayne West Vs. Pete Davidson
Pete Davidson initially joined Saturday Night Live as a cast member in 2014, quickly becoming one of the more controversial & popular members on this series. Controversy has followed multiple times after Davidson has used Saturday Night Live as a platform to engage with political topics. Pete isn’t the 1st castmate with SNL to question politicians in front of millions, many others have, with Davidson just being the most recent & notable.
Davidson once entered an infamous feud with Kayne West, which followed after Pete made remarks about the rapper’s speech of support for Donald Trump. The SNL Castmate directly attacked West, noting that an African American supporting the racist behaviour of Donald Trump is hysterical behaviour. Kayne would refute his statements & claim his position as god of music, showing that his egotistical nature could never end.
