After criticizing Steve Rannazzisi for fabricating a story about escaping 9/11, Saturday Night Live's Pete Davidson is asking outraged fans to "take it easy" on his fellow comedian.
Rannazzisi, 37, admitted Wednesday that he's been lying about his near-death experience ever since terrorists crashed into the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. Davidson's father, a New York firefighter, died in the horrific attack.
