If Louis CK had his way, Pete Davidson's comedy career would have gone up in smoke years ago, when CK allegedly tried to get Davidson fired from 'Saturday Night Live' for smoking marijuana.
Davidson - who has been doing standup sets to keep busy during SNL's holiday hiatus - recently revealed to a crowd at Boston's Chevalier Theatre that CK “told all the producers in front of me that all this kid does is smoke weed and he’s gonna smoke his career away.”
The situation escalated to the point that CK allegedly approached 'SNL' creator and executive producer Lorne Michaels and said Davidson “smokes so much weed that it makes people uncomfortable.”
Of course, calling out Davidson's behavior is pretty outrageous given the skeletons that CK was hiding in his closet. So it's understandable that Davidson is relishing his chance to have the last laugh now that CK's sex scandal has come to light.
“Then five years later this motherfucker’s been locking doors and jerking off in front of people,” Davidson said in the set on New Year's Eve. So it looks like he's made a resolution to settle old grudges onstage.
