Kenan Thompson both criticized and defended his "SNL" co-star Pete Davidson after he mocked a Republican veteran running for Congress.

"It's been an unfortunate outcome when you're a comedian trying to go for jokes...and you want to bring joy into something and you miss the mark", the 40-year-old added.

Kenan Thompson is once again addressing his "Saturday Night Live" co-star Pete Davidson's joke about Dan Crenshaw, a now-elected Republican congressman, who lost an eye while serving in the US military, stating that he believes the NBC show is "figuring out a way to right that wrong". Still, Thompson defended his colleague the best he could. "He has a big heart", Thompson told "The View" hosts.

Pete Davidson made yet another joke that was frowned upon during Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update". "I'm sorry, I know he lost his eye in war or whatever".

The said the fallout from Davidson's jokes may have helped him in the race, but he believes what really carried him to victory was spending the past year connecting with voters in his district.
