Pete Davidson’s firefighter father, Scott, was a first responder on Sept. 11, 2001. He and five others in his company crossed the Brooklyn Bridge to the Twin Towers, and raced up the stairs of the Marriott World Trade Center Hotel to help those in need. Unfortunately, they never made it out. Pete, who was 7 years old at the time, has referenced his pops before, at Justin Bieber roasts and on Twitter, and it’s clear where he gets his sense of humor from.
“Scott was always clowning around,” recalled Jaime Hatton Cregin, Davidson’s former schoolmate at Staten Island’s St. Joseph by-the-Sea High School. “Telling jokes, making people laugh. At school, he used to tell me that I liked him — and then told me to carry his books,” she recalled. (Via)
