“SNL” star Pete Davidson said the anti-COVID lockdown protests there make the borough’s residents look like “babies” — but quipped that he’s glad that he’s no longer the “worst thing about Staten Island,” his native borough.
The “King of Staten Island” comedian riffed on the rallies outside the bar that declared itself a COVID-19 restriction “autonomous zone” when he appeared on the “Weekend Update” segment.
“I saw the protests, people were outside the bar shouting about freedom, talking to cops, chanting that they should arrest the governor so I just assumed that it was a typical last call,” Davidson said.
