While Davidson does not have an account on the social media platform, he posted a long and emotional message via the account of Dave Sirus, who writes for the show and also worked on his 2020 film, The King of Staten Island. His words accompany a video of him celebrating wrap of production on his first episode of SNL with fellow comic Jerrod Carmichael.
Davidson joined SNL as one of the show’s youngest-ever cast members, and quickly broke out as one of its biggest stars. News of his exit alongside longtime cast members Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant and Kyle Mooney broke yesterday. In addition to tonight’s Season 47 finale hosted by Natasha Lyonne, he will next be seen in the Peacock series Bupkis, Alex Lehmann’s film Meet Cute with Kaley Cuoco, Miramax’s horror-thriller The Home and David Michôd’s recently announced feature, Wizards!. Davidson’s Instagram announcement, signed “Resident young person Pete Davidson,” can be found below.
