Comedian Pete Davidson ripped into the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals in an expletive-ridden, leaked voicemail after being criticized for purchasing a new dog as a pet.
Davidson lashed out at PETA after the organization scolded his choice of pet.
"It's tragic that Pete didn't seek out a mutt from a city animal shelter because a scrappy New Yorker with charm, personality, and unconventional handsomeness could have been his perfect match," read a statement from PETA.
Davidson didn't appreciate the advice, and he called Daphna Nachminovitch, senior VP of cruelty investigations, to explain his actions and berate the organization for the statement.
"Thank you so much for making a public comment that I didn't adopt a dog. I just wanna let you know, I'm severely allergic to dogs so I have to get a specific breed. I'm only not allergic to Cavapoos and those type of dogs," he said on the voicemail.
“And my mom’s f***ing dog, who is 2 years old, died a week prior, and we're all so sad. So I had to get a specific dog," he added. “So why don’t you do your research before you f***ing create news stories for people because you’re a boring, tired [expletive]!”
He concluded by adding, “F*** you and suck my d***!"
PETA responded to the vulgar request by scolding Davidson even further.
"If Pete had done his research, he would know that there’s no such thing as a hypoallergenic dog, that at least a quarter of dogs in shelters are purebreds, and that Petfinder has listings for homeless dogs of every breed under the sun, including the one he purchased," said the organization to TMZ.
Davidson expressed some regret about his voicemail to TMZ.
"I haven't seen my mom and sister cry like that in over 20 years. I was trying to cheer up my family," he explained.
"Then this organization made a public example of us, making our grieving situation worse," Davidson added. "I am upset. It was a poor choice of words. I shouldn't have said what I said, but I am not sorry for standing up for myself and my family."
Davidson outraged many when he mocked Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas over a wound he had received while serving in the military. He later apologized to Crenshaw in a popular sketch on "Saturday Night Live," but he then admitted that he had been forced to do so.
