Die hard fans of Pete Davidson who is quarantining at his mom’s house are flouting social distancing guidelines in order to check on him from time to time.
While joining Judd Apatow on The Tonight Show to talk about his new film The King of Staten Island, he mentioned that he recently had an unexpected visitor show up on his doorstep bearing gifts we’re not quite sure his mom would approve of.
According to Davidson, it all started earlier this week after he posted a seemingly innocuous promotional video for the film’s VOD release.
“I mentioned that I wasn’t doing drugs, that I was trying not to,” he explained, “And then literally three hours later, a lady rang my doorbell with a full bag of weed and gave it to my mom and said ‘I heard your son needs this.'”
The woman gave him “a couple weeks’ worth” of weed — though he made it clear that he didn’t keep the gift.
And while we’re sure Davidson appreciated the sentiment, he went on to tell The Tonight Show that he wants people to stop delivering drugs to his mom’s house.
“So, if you see this, please do not do that because I will sell it,” he said with a wink.
“The King of Staten Island”
The trailer for Pete Davidson’s semi-autobiographical film “The King of Staten Island” has arrived, and it includes multiple nods to the star’s real life.
Directed by Judd Apatow and co-written by the “Saturday Night Live” star, the dramedy centers on slacker tattoo artist Scott, played by Davidson, as he deals with life after the death of his firefighter father. The trailer also shows Marisa Tomei as Scott’s mother, Margie, and Bill Burr as her new love interest, Ray.
“That’s the date my dad died,” Davidson’s Scott says at the beginning of the trailer, while showing off a tattoo on his right arm. “He was a fireman. Died in a fire 17 years ago.”
In real life, Davidson’s father, named Scott, was also a firefighter. He died on duty during the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and the comedian has his badge number 8418 tattooed on his left arm, according to his 2015 New York Times profile.
