On New Years Eve Saturday Night Live star and Thank U, Next muse Pete Davidson made a joke about Louis C.K.’s death

C.K. recently made headlines for making jokes about non-binary people and Parkland shooting survivors.

Just two weeks after deleting his Instagram account (after he posted some concerning messages about his mental health), the comedian took to the stand-up stage once again with his sights aimed at the disgraced funny guy.

“I got a Harry Potter tattoo. Then the next day Alan Rickman, the guy who played Snape, died and I was like, ‘Oh, what a weird coincidence,’” Davidson told a crowd in Boston, according to Esquire. “Then I got a Willy Wonka tattoo. Next day—Gene Wilder dies. Now I’m like, alright, that’s a coincidence, that’s weird. So I’m thinking of getting a tattoo of Louis C.K., what do you guys think?”

In the past year, C.K. has been accused of sexual harassment by several women and lost gigs, and movie and television deals.

After cracking the death-related tattoo joke, Davidson went on to describe his experience on set when C.K. was hosting SNL. “[He] told all the producers in front of me that all this kid does is smoke weed and he’s gonna smoke his career away.”

C.K didn’t stop there, he allegedly told executive producer Lorne Michaels that Davidson “smokes so much weed that it makes people uncomfortable.”

You know what also makes people feel uncomfortable, Louis? Masturbating in front of someone without their consent.
