Steve Rannazzisi makes millions of people laugh each week as a star on The League.
But no one found what the actor admitted to this morning to be funny.
In a shocking, disturbing admission, Rannazzisi confessed that he lied back in the day about working in the World Trade Center at the time of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
“I don’t know why I said this. This was inexcusable. I am truly, truly sorry," Rannazzisi said in a statement issued via his publicist.
Of those who have chimed in on the scandal, many have taken note of Pete Davidson's response because the Saturday Night Live cast member lost his father in those same attacks.
“It’s ok @SteveRannazzisi people make mistakes," Davidson initially Tweeted, awkwardly adding: "Can’t wait to meet my dad for lunch later."
But Rannazzisi appeared to have missed the joke, writing back in response:
“Thank you Pete. I really appreciate it."
He eventually deleted this reply.
However, and after speaking with Rannazzisi personally, Davidson then turned serious and Tweeted once more:
“Take it easy on @SteveRannazzisi … He reached out to me and is truly sorry. We all sometimes lie and exaggerate a story to seem cooler."
That's true. Just ask Brian Williams.
Still... really, Steve Rannazzisi?!? Wow, dude.
