Michael Rapaport ‘offended’ Pete Davidson hasn’t apologized for suicide note
Michael Rapaport feels Pete Davidson should have apologized for scaring his fans.
The “Atypical” star stopped by “You Up with Nikki Glaser” on SiriusXM’s Comedy Central Radio and explained why he’s upset with the “Saturday Night Live” star in the wake of his social media suicide scare.
“The Pete Davidson thing, I was annoyed with this f–king guy and his f–king suicide attempt note, and then not apologizing for it. That really offended me,” said Rapaport (via E! News), who will soon be filling in for Wendy Williams on her namesake morning show. “The fact that he’s come back and didn’t acknowledge — yo to all my fans, to the New York City police department, to the people I work with and all my fans that were worried — I apologize for saying that.”
Rapaport, 48, mentioned that while he was in the hospital he made sure to assure his fans he would be OK.
“I had a little incident where I was in the hospital and I posted a picture of myself in a neck brace and the first thing I said was, ‘I’m fine, I’m good, don’t worry,’” he explained, adding that Davidson failing to do something similar was “sucker ass s–t.”
“We’re glad you’re good, but you freaked everybody out,” Rapaport said.
Rapaport previously came under fire for mocking Davidson and Kanye West after they both issued worrisome messages on social media.
“Pete Davidson & KANYE must really not have Homeboys for real,” Rapaport wrote at the time. “These are 2 whinny [sic] ass bitching ass social media Babies.”
Rapaport later apologized and admitted he spoke too soon.
“Didn’t realize Pete Davidson posted an actual genuinely scary IG note,” he admitted. “Had no clue. Was not informed of all of those details. Would never mock someone when they’re truly down. Sincerely. I thought this was all the daily normal gossip of the day & was doing my daily take.”
Rapaport also sparked fury for criticizing Grande’s looks.
“Ariana Grande is 27 acts 12, you take off those boots she hides her legs in, the cat eye make up and the genie pony tale and I think there’s hotter women working the counter at Starbucks no disrespect to Starbucks,” he wrote.
While speaking with Glaser, Rapaport stood by that observation.
“And was like, I’m not apologizing for this s–t anyway! And I was, like, because in 20 years she’s going to be like Mariah Carey f–king up the lyrics to her own song, drunk at a New Year’s thing,” he said.
