Comedian Pete Davidson was working on some new material at the South Orange Performing Arts Center in NJ on Monday night when one of his fans tried to make a joke of rapper Mac Miller’s death. Let’s just say it did not go well for the fan.
Miller was found dead at the age of 26 on September 7 in his California home. His death was ruled an accidental overdose of fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol, according to People.
The late Miller had dated Ariana Grande before she dated Pete Davidson, and his death seems to have played a factor in her and Davidson’s breakup, at least if you go by the lyrics to her song “Ghostin.”
So it was in really, really bad taste when, after Davidson began a joke with “My friend died in my apartment,” someone in the audience clearly yelled out “Mac Miller,” according to audio obtained by TMZ.
Right after the dude yelled it out, Davidson asked, “Jesus Christ, who’s that guy?” He then said, “We’re getting him out. Point out the guy who’s a f*ckface.” He completely stopped the set and waited for the crowd to out the guy so security could remove him, saying, “I’ll wait. I will wait. I will not continue until that guy’s gone.”
“I’ll leave, so if you want the show to continue, call out the person who did it,” he said. He also asked that the venue give the guy his money back because he didn’t want it.
“I don’t deal with that sh*t at my show,” he said, later adding, “I have to deal with that enough.”
In recent weeks, Davidson has been spotted with Kate Beckinsale, so maybe that’s a thing? People reported that the pair were together first at Netflix’s Golden Globes afterparty and then they were spotted holding hands leaving the West Hollywood, CA, venue Largo at the Coronet after Pete Davidson had done a set.
