Yes, all the talk of SNL’s season premiere yesterday is about Matt Damon’s performance portraying Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, but another familiar SNL character is making the rounds over a “controversial” comment.
In “Weekend Update,” Pete Davidson chatted with host Colin Jost about how his life has changed since his engagement to pop star Ariana Grande.
Davidson jokes of receiving death threats, then goes on to dish of something he did to keep Grande around.
“Last night I switched her birth control with Tic Tacs. I believe in us and all, but I just want to make sure that she can’t go anywhere,” he said.
You can see the clip below:
Some thought of the joke as hilarious and witty while others thought the comment was “messy” and “gross.”
Pete Davidson has been pretty funny… except for the birth control swapped with tic tacs joke.

I’ve never had an issue with Pete Davidson, but his joke about substituting Tic-Tacs for girlfriend Ariana Grande’s birth control pills to make sure she “can’t go anywhere” is the wrong joke at the wrong time.— mattresstagging (@mattresstagging) September 30, 2018
Y’all I used to love Pete Davidson but this joke was really too much. Obstructing a women’s right to birth control is something that actually happens and truly is not a joke. https://t.co/CGcHhcMygx— 🌻🌞Kenzie Matthews🌞🌻 (@kenziematthews8) September 30, 2018
What are your thoughts on his comments? Funny? Or, wrong place wrong time?
