This weekend, Davidson was once again faced with vast backlash after joking about GOP congressional candidate Dan Crenshaw's appearance. Laughing, Davidson said, "I'm sorry, I know he lost his eye in war, or whatever".
But Crenshaw did not demand an apology from Davidson or NBC.
Crenshaw detailed the attack that cost him his eye in an interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation in March.
Jack Pandol, a spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee, released a statement Sunday mocking Davidson, who recently broke up with his girlfriend, pop star Ariana Grande.
Crenshaw has since been alerted to Davidson's comments, and wrote on Twitter this afternoon that he doesn't appreciate being mocked for his appearance: "Good rule in life: I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended. Right? It was not original, it was not amusing, it was just mean-spirited and that's how I feel about it", Crenshaw told TMZ, according to Fox News. We don't need to be outwardly outraged, I don't need you to demand an apology from them.
"They probably should apologize, but I'm not going to demand an apology. But, you know, stand-ups are very like - they're the ones that help us laugh through the most bad things in the first place, so they're always fishing in weird places, and that was an unfortunate outcome".
"I realized there are some really gross people running for office this year, ' he continued, first joking that Florida Senate candidate Rick Scott looked like 'someone tried to whittle Bruce Willis out of a penis".
Thompson described Davidson as "a humble dude and has got a big heart and i don't think he goes out to offend people".
