Pete Davidson defends Ariana Grande after she gets slammed for wearing his dad’s badge
The sentimental piece of jewellery has 8418 inscribed on it and is the badge number worn by Davidson's father when he died during the September 11, 200,1 terrorist attacks.
Hollywood actor Pete Davidson came to the defence of pop singer Ariana Grande after the internet criticised her for wearing a badge of the fire department. Ariana was slammed after Pete who appears on Saturday Night Live share a photo of her on social media with the pendant. The badge in question is a New York City Fire Department which was Pete’s father’s but users went ahead to say that she has no right to wear it.
According to reports, Pete wore it earlier in remembrance of his father after he passed away in September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in New York City. However, just before he got engaged to Ariana Grande, he decided to give it to her and she wore it as a pendant. Pete immediately came to Ariana’s rescue after a user said no girl should wear his chain as it is disrespectful. However, Davidson immediately replied saying that Ariana is not any girl and is in fact his fiancee and she’s the greatest person he knows. Pete also went on to say that she has his heart and even his father would be happy about it.
The sentimental piece of jewellery has 8418 inscribed on it and is the badge number worn by Davidson's father when he died during terrorist attacks. To show her support to him, Grande also has the number tattooed on the top of her foot while Davidson has the same numbers inked on his left forearm.
