Pete Davidson gets death threats over Ariana Grande engagement: "Someone wanted to shoot me in the face because she’s so hot"
Pete Davidson's relationship with Ariana Grande may be a hashtag relationship goals, but not everyone is pleased. According to the comedian, a few have even threatened to shoot him in the face over his engagement to the 'God is a woman' singer.
The Saturday Night Live comic was on 'The Howard Stern Show' Monday morning and talked about the issues of dating a famous pop star. He says he’s received death threats, including someone who actually wanted to gun him down.
“I got a death threat,” the 24-year-old said. "Someone wanted to shoot me in the face because she’s so hot. You know how insane that is? It’s like, ‘Am I that ugly that people wanna shoot me in the face?’ They’re like, ‘F—k that guy.’ ”
It’s not the first time Davidson has mocked himself when it comes to the 'God is a Woman,' singer.

In August, he told Variety, “I’m still convinced she’s blind or hit her head really hard. Something is going to happen, and she’s going to be like, ‘What the f–k is this thing doing around?’ For right now, it’s rocking.”
In his recent interview, Davidson admits it’s hard to even walk down the street nowadays, and says he sometimes uses a security detail when he’s out with Ariana. “It’s pretty rough, it’s like the walking dead out there,” the star sighed.
On Stern, Davidson also ripped into actor Chevy Chase for recently trashing the current state of 'Saturday Night Live' as the “Worst f*cking humor in the world.”
Davidson said Chase is a “racist” and a “jerk off,” who should have more respect for creator Lorne Michaels and the show that helped launch Chase’s career.
Looks like Davidson has had to deal with more insults recently than just the controversy of his “butthole eyes.”
