Eyeless Congressional Candidate Isn’t Thrilled With Pete Davidson’s SNL Jokes

After showing an image of Crenshaw wearing his eyepatch, Davidson said, "You may be surprised to hear he's a congressional candidate in Texas and not a hit man in a porno movie". "I'm sorry. I know he lost his eye in war or whatever", he quipped.

"We have thick skin, but as veterans, it's hard for us to understand why war wounds would elicit such raucous laughter from an audience", he said, adding, "I think they should've rethought that joke a little bit - if you can even call it a joke".

Crenshaw was quick to respond to Davidson's skit on Sunday morning.

But Crenshaw did not demand an apology from Davidson or NBC. "I think that would be very healthy for our nation.to go in that direction".

"We need to stop thousands of people from illegally crossing from one side of our border to the other", he said. "They took some time to stabilize me in Afghanistan and do the surgery to remove my right eye. But, you know, stand-ups are very like - they're the ones that help us laugh through the most bad things in the first place, so they're always fishing in weird places, and that was an unfortunate outcome". "Right? It was not original, it was not amusing, it was just mean-spirited and that's how I feel about it", Crenshaw told TMZ, according to Fox News.

He is now listed as questionable for the Patriots' upcoming game against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday with an ankle injury. Both teams are coming in with excellent quarterback and offensive play, along with defenses that could use some improvement.


He then echoed his tweet, saying he hopes the comedian and SNL realize "veterans across the country probably don't feel as though their wounds they received in battle should be the subject of a bad punch line". The guy did three combat tours as a Navy SEAL. His website describes how he lost his eye: "On Dan's third deployment in 2012, his life changed forever".

After defeating State Rep. Kevin Roberts in a May primary, Crenshaw faces Todd Litton, a Democrat, in the race for Texas' 2nd Congressional District.

Still, it doesn't look like Crenshaw is looking for an apology.

"I have a thick skin", Crenshaw said, noting that when people, including his friends, make jokes about him, it "has to be original, has to be witty, and it has to actually be amusing".
