Some UC Merced students have a bone to choose with the “Thank U, Next” singer’s ex-fiancé. Apparently, Pete Davidson kicked Ariana Grande fans out of his comedy show at UC Merced on February three. The incident, which occurred at a student-sponsored concert with the Saturday Evening Reside star, involved a student who wore an Ariana Grande T-shirt to the show and didn’t laugh at any of his jokes.
According to the Merced Sun Star, the school’s campus activities board generally organizes student-only shows that are paid for by way of costs that students spend in addition to their tuition. A single such show was with Davidson. Student Ivan Martinez won a front-row seat to the comedian’s show, exactly where he didn’t laugh at Davidson’s jokes and located several of them tasteless. Apparently noticing this (and the truth that Martinez wore a shirt with ex-fiance on it), Davidson kicked him and his boyfriend out of his show.
“He produced a kid molestation joke, which I did not come across funny. He known as me out for, I guess, not laughing at his joke,” the cognitive science big mentioned. “He mentioned, ‘Why is this dude all really serious?’ He kept asking me if I had something to say.”
Apparently, Davidson known as Martinez an “asshole,” which prompted Martinez’s boyfriend, Juan Aguirre, to defend him. “I mentioned ‘This is a student show sponsored by students,’” Aguirre mentioned. “The comedian mentioned, ‘No, this is my show and you are having kicked out.’”
When the males left, Davidson reportedly flipped them off. The couple mentioned the crowd also began cursing at them.
Although Martinez wore an Ariana Grande T-shirt to Davidson’s show, he mentioned he wasn’t attempting to lead to a scene or start off any ill will with his outfit decision. He explained that his shirt decision was merely due to the fact he’s a fan of Grande’s and due to the fact the release of her album, Thank U, Subsequent, was days away.
Martinez is asking for a public apology. He and Aguirre want each Davidson and his school’s campus activities board to apologize. “It was like public humiliation,” Aguirre mentioned. “We want a public apology.”
Following they had been thrown out of the front row, the students had been presented seats in a unique section of the theater but they declined.
