Steve Rannazzisi, known for playing Kevin on The League, sometimes told talk show hosts and stand-up audiences that he was inspired to pursue his dream of being a comedian after narrowly escaping from The World Trade Center on 9/11. When it was revealed that Rannazzisi was actually in Midtown during the attack, he took to Twitter to issue a public apology.

Rannazzisi says he made the false claims when he was an “immature young man,” but the 37 year-old told his 9/11 story during an interview in 2009.

Pete Davidson, a young comedian on Saturday Night Live whose father was a firefighter killed on 9/11, responded to the apology with this tweet:

Rannazzisi, presumably unaware of what happened to Davidson’s father, tweeted back with this (now deleted):

How do you dig a hole even deeper for yourself after the world finds out you lied about being in 9/11? That’s how. Davidson fired back with this:

I know Rannazzisi lied about probably the worst thing a human could lie about in America, but I almost feel bad for the guy. He is currently experiencing the online equivalent of the Game Of Thrones finale, where Cersei was forced to walk naked in the street while the entire city literally shat all over her.


By now, he must be huddling in his bathtub, sobbing and eating string cheese. Davidson decided to show him some mercy.

Props to Davidson. He could have continued to drill away at the second asshole already torn through Rannazzisi’s taint, but instead, the young comic spared him from (at least some) further humiliation. Truly a class act.
