Pete Davidson Speaks Out After Leaving PETA Explicit Voicemail: ‘I Am Upset’
Pete Davidson and PETA are at a crossroads. Earlier this week, the 29-year-old comedian left PETA’s Senior VP of Investigations Daphna Nachminovitch a heated voicemail after they criticized him for buying a cavapoo puppy at a pet shop instead of adopting from a shelter. In the explicit voicemail obtained by TMZ, the former “SNL” shed some light on his decision and revealed that he is “severely allergic to dogs” before further defending his decision by saying that the puppy was for his mother, whose 2-year-old dog Henry had recently died. “I haven’t seen my mom and sister cry like that in over 20 years. I was trying to cheer up my family. I was already upset that the store had filmed me without my permission or acknowledgment. Then this organization (PETA) made a public example of us, making our grieving situation worse. I am upset. It was a poor choice of words. I shouldn’t have said what I said, but I am not sorry for standing up for myself and my family,” Pete said to TMZ.
