War hero Dan Crenshaw says he doesn’t need any fake apologies from Saturday Night Live after they attacked the Congressional candidate in a skit last weekend.
According to Politico:
“GOP congressional candidate Dan Crenshaw said Monday that he would not demand a “hollow and empty” apology from NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” over comedian Pete Davidson’s joke about the former Navy SEAL’s eye patch.
Davdison, in a “Weekend Update” segment, said of Crenshaw: “you may be surprised to hear he’s a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hit man in a porno movie.”
“I’m sorry, I know he lost his eye in war, or whatever,” Davidson added.
The remark prompted the National Republican Congressional Committee to demand an apology from NBC and Davidson. Crenshaw, in a Monday morning appearance on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends,” stopped short of such a demand.
“They probably should apologize but that doesn’t mean I’m going it demand an apology,” Crenshaw said. “I don’t want to demand an apology that is hollow and empty.”
