‘This is Disgusting!’ NBC Under Fire After Mocking War Veteran and GOP Candidate Dan Crenshaw

SNL Denigrates Battle Wound of Former SEAL Dan Crenshaw

The NRCC weren't the only ones not happy about Davidson's joke.

"Hold on", Davidson told him.

This weekend, Davidson was once again faced with vast backlash after joking about GOP congressional candidate Dan Crenshaw's appearance.

"I'm sorry, I know he lost his eye in war, or whatever", Davidson added, shrugging and grinning.

He wrote, "Good rule in life: I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended".

Dan Crenshaw himself told TMZ, he doesn't need an apology, but SNL needs to think about how jokes about war injuries sits with our vets. especially when they're not amusing.

The National Republican Congressional Committee also released a statement demanding that Davidson and NBC apologize.

Donald Trump Jr., the President's son, tweeted that the comment "sounds more like leftist editorial than anything these days". He lost his right eye and damaged his left, but returned to serve after multiple surgeries. "The SEAL teams-we poke fun at each other all the time", he said. Yet, once again, we have an example of liberal hubs just oozing with hatred for people who aren't like them. During this third tour, in Afghanistan, he was hit by the blast of an IED.

He went on to ask SNL and Davidson to be more considerate in the future.

The comedian joked that he started paying attention to the midterm elections after he "had to move back in with my mom", a clear reference to his breakup with Grande. And here's the real atrocity in all of this: It wasn't even amusing.

"This guy's kinda cool, Dan Crenshaw", Davidson joked while Crenshaw's face was on the screen.

"What are NBC's standards for firing?" PC to insult wounded vets?!?

Fox News host Tammy Bruce alerted her followers that she would be discussing Davidson's segment on Sunday's episode of "The Five".

The comedian then made a decision to turn the joke on himself, saying he knows he "shouldn't be making fun of how anyone looks". 'I look like a Dr Seuss character went to prison'. It seems like SNL's audience loved Davidson's joke (they laughed heartily, as heard in the clip below), but maybe the vibe was different in-person, and Thompson is speaking to that.
