Pete Davidson is standing up for his woman. The Saturday Night Live star clapped back a fan who suggested he was “disrespectful” after he posted a shot of fiancée Ariana Grande wearing an FDNY badge that once belonged to his late father, Scott Davidson.
The actor, 24, took to Instagram on Saturday, July 14, with a photo of Grande, 25, wearing a necklace with a firefighter logo and the number 8418 — the badge number worn by the New York City firefighter, who died during the 9/11 terror attacks.
Though many fans thought the gesture was sweet, writing comments such as “Your love is so pure and kind. Your dad would love her!” one particular commenter took exception to the post. “No girl should ever wear your dad’s chain,” the fan wrote. “So disrespectful.”
The comedian was quick to reply, answering, “For ur information that’s not just some girl. That’s my fiance. she’s the greatest person I know. I gave it to her because she has my heart and that is the most precious thing I own. my dad would be so happy and love her so much.”
She has since gotten a sixth tattoo in honor of her man with a script of Pete’s name on her engagement finger.
