SNL Star Pays Tribute To Firefighter Dad Who Died On 9/11

Today is an emotional day for us all, but especially so for those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001. Among them is Pete Davidson, a featured player on Saturday Night Live, whose firefighter father was killed on 9/11.

The comedian, who was just seven-years-old when his father died, posted a touching tribute to his dad on Twitter today. Davidson shared childhood photos of him posing with his pops, though his "dick" remark seems a bit lost in translation. Inside joke, perhaps?


"There's not a day that goes by where I don't think of you," Davidson wrote. "You're my hero. Can't wait to see you again some day."

No judgment if you shed a tear or two after that. We certainly did.
