Pete Davidson Joked About Messing With Ariana Grande's Birth Control on SNL

He shows up to the first day of work an entirely new man, complete with a blond dye job, a wardrobe of graphic sweatshirts, and a pet pig.

The 44th season of Saturday Night Live premiered on Saturday night—and it definitely gave fans a lot to talk about. There was Matt Damon's portrayal of a super bro-y Brett Kavanaugh in the show's cold open, as well as Kanye West performing dressed first as a giant bottle of Perrier and then in a MAGA hat. But there was one moment during Pete Davidson's turn on the "Weekend Update" desk that Twitter is decidedly not ok with.

While sitting down with SNL cast mate Colin Jost to chat about his engagement (and whether or not the couple has a prenup), Davidson joked that his fiancee, singer Ariana Grande, pays $60,000 for rent while all he has to do is "stock the fridge." When Jost commented that a man "doesn't always have to be the breadwinner in a relationship," Davidson replied, "G*****n right, he does not—last night I switched her birth control with Tic Tacs."

"I believe in us, and all," he continued, "I just want to make sure she can't go anywhere."

If you're fully cringing at this statement, you are definitely not alone.

Fans on Twitter were less than thrilled with the comment, especially given the timing of this weeks episode. "Apparently Pete Davidson thinks it’s ok to make jokes about switching Ariana’s birth control with tic-tacs?? Really? At this stage in the game this dude can no longer call these jokes," wrote one fan on Twitter. "#SNL Pete Davidson joking that he switched Ariana Grade's birth control with tic tacs IS COMPLETELY TONE DEAF given all of their needling of Kavanaugh."

Many others chimed in in agreement, calling the joke "insensitive," and urging SNL to "be better" with their content.

Davidson went on to joke that if the couple ever did break up, he'd be stuck working at K-Mart listening to Ariana Grande's "Pete Davidson" blaring through the speakers.
