SNL Chided For Joking About Texas Candidate's War Injury

Crenshaw

Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson is catching heat for joking about a Texas congressional candidate who lost his eye in combat.  Davidson made an  off-color remark about Republican Dan Crenshaw, who wears an eye-patch because of his injury.  Many people sounded off on Davidson on social media, saying the joke was offensive to veterans and to Crenshaw, who  served as a Navy SEAL. Crenshaw responded by saying he hopes SNL recognizes that "vets don't deserve to see their wounds used as  punchlines for bad jokes."
