On Sunday afternoon, Pete Davidson, a fan of the New York Knicks, saw his team play and defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers, 102-93, from courtside next to Jon Stewart.

On his way out of Madison Square Garden, the comedian was taking photographs with fans as one overly enthusiastic man wearing a Knicks hat appeared to be a bit too near. According to a video, the man kept going closer to Davidson, and Pete had enough.

In order to respect his personal space, Davidson pushed the man away. The issue didn’t seem to worsen once the man seemed to understand what was being said.

After Davidson shoved him, the man moved away, but as he posed for pictures with another fan, he was seen shaking his head in apparent annoyance at the fan who had gotten too near.

The comedian attended the last two Knicks-Cavaliers games in Manhattan at The Garden together with a number of other well-known figures from the entertainment and sports worlds.

At this point, Davidson hasn’t made any public comments on the event, and it’s not apparent if the fan was asked to leave the arena following the incident.

The appearance occurs just one week after it was made public that Davidson would be returning to Saturday Night Live in the following month. Pete joined the cast in 2014 at the age of 20 and continued for eight seasons before departing at the conclusion of Season 47 in 2022.
