WATCH: Pete Davidson compares R. Kelly to the Catholic church

Most of what Pete Davidson says and does seems to end up shrouded in controversy.

The Saturday Night Live comedian's latest comments on R. Kelly and the catholic church won't be any different.

Speaking on SNL's Weekend Update, Davidson spoke about R. Kelly's recent arrest for sexual abuse, saying "If you support the Catholic church, isn’t that the same thing as being an R. Kelly fan?" comparing his mom going to mass to him listening to the Ignition remix.

"I don’t really see the difference, only one’s music is significantly better."

Davidson also suggested some constructive behaviour for when people engage with artists or entertainers who have been shown up as predators.

"Any time any of us listen to a song or watch a movie made by an accused serial predator, you have to donate a dollar to a charity that helps sexual assault survivors," the SNL cast member told host Colin Jost. Davidson said that he already paid out "$142, and that’s just from the ‘Ignition’ remix alone."
