Pete Davidson Pays Tribute to His Dad on 9/11 Anniversary

SNL Star Pete Davidson Pays Tribute to His Firefighter Father Who Died on 9/11

For comedian Pete Davidson, today is more than just a day. The Saturday Night Live star took to social media on Friday, the 14th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks to pay tribute to his firefighter dad who died on that tragic day. Pete was just 7 years old when his father's unit went to the Marriott World Trade Center Hotel, which was destroyed when the Twin Towers collapsed.

Pete used his signature humor to deal with the loss on Twitter, joking, "Can't believe its been 14 years. I remember seeing ur gigantic d*ck like it was just yesterday. RIP Dad #NeverForget." But he took a serious turn on Instagram when he posted a photo of himself wearing his father's firefighter jacket. "Can't believe it's been 14 years," he wrote. "Over 2/3 of my life without you. It feels like it was just yesterday. There's not a day that goes by where I don't think of you. You're my hero. Can't wait to see you again someday RIP dad 1/4/68-9/11/01 #neverforget." See his touching tributes below, then see the double rainbow that reached across Manhattan the day before the anniversary.
