In a new video interview with Charlamagne Tha God, posted on Monday, February 24, Pete, admitted that he “personally thinks” he should leave the sketch show and has had “conversations” about it with several people.
He says that he’s been painted as the dumb idiot on the show, and even when he’s not there- there are still jokes about him.
While he has a great relationship with creator Lorne Michaels — “he has treated me with nothing but love and he’s like a father figure to me,” Davidson noted — the show is “cutthroat” elsewhere.
Davidson joined the NBC series in 2014 after getting noticed on Guy Code, Wild ‘N Out and making an appearance on Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
Pete has many other projects on the go including the next suicide Squad, but Pete says he doesn’t want to be disrespectful to those at NBC who have always supported him.
