South Orange, NJ – Pete Davidson took charge during a stand-up routine at New Jersey’s South Orange Performing Arts Center on Monday (February 25) when a heckler evidently took things a little too far. As the Saturday Night Live cast member’s set was getting underway, he was met with a comment he didn’t particularly like.
“My friend died at my apartment,” he says. Before he could finish his thought, someone yells out, “Mac Miller?”
Davidson replies, “Oh Jesus Christ. Whoever said that, we’re getting him out … I will not continue until that kid’s gone. Find him … I’ll leave. If you want the show to continue, call out the person who did it and get him the fuck out. Get his money back and get him the fuck out. I don’t deal with that shit at my show.
“If you sit next to the person who did that, call it out. ‘Cause I’ll just leave right now. I don’t give a shit. I’m not making much money at this show. This show is just for fun … I’m not going to have that shit at my show … I’ll wait. Hope you’re proud of yourself. You just fucking fucked up everything.”
Before Davidson ends his tirade, he says to make sure the man gets his money back.
“I don’t want his money,” he says.
Miller’s September 2018 death reportedly led to Davidson’s split with pop princess Ariana Grande.
She’d dated Miller for roughly two years before calling it quits last May. Grande got engaged to Davidson shortly after.
Sources close to Grande and Davidson said she was in an “incredibly dark place” following Miller’s overdose.
