Pete Davidson Compares R. Kelly Sexual Abuse Scandal to Catholic Church



Saturday Night Live's Pete Davidson stopped by the show's "Weekend Update" to give his R. Kelly take.

"Before I continue, this guy is a monster and he should go to jail forever," Davidson began. "But if you support the Catholic Church, isn't that the same thing a being an R. Kelly fan? I don't see the difference. Only like one's music is significantly better."


"Once we start doing our research we're not going to have much left cause it seems like all really talented people are sick," Davidson says. He goes on to highlight a list of celebrities including Charlie Chapman and Mark Wahlberg who have done questionable things in their lives.

"All I'm saying is pretending these people never existed is maybe not the solution. The rule should be you can appreciate their work as long as you can admit what they did," Davidson said. "Every time one of us listens to a song or watches a movie made by an accused serial predator, you have to give a dollar to a charity that helps sexual assault survivors. I've already donated $142 and that's from the 'Ignition' remix alone."
