- Pete Davidson poked fun at his failed engagement to Ariana Grande in a new promo for “Saturday Night Live.”
- In the clip, he jokingly proposes to musical guest Maggie Rogers. Rogers says “no” and looks away uncomfortably. Davidson then says, “0 for 3.”
- Shortly after the video was posted online, Grande wrote on Twitter, “for somebody who claims to hate relevancy u sure love clinging to it huh,” and followed up with a tweet saying, “thank u, next.”
- Grande also retweeted a fan who wrote, “tag yourself i’m maggie.”
Ariana Grande appeared to chastise her ex-fiancé, Pete Davidson, on Twitter, just hours after the comedian poked fun at their broken engagement.
She has since deleted both tweets.
While Grande did not mention Davidson by name, many fans interpreted these tweets as a response to a joke he made in a new promo for the upcoming episode of “Saturday Night Live.”
In the short clip – which was posted on YouTube on Thursday night, a few hours before Grande’s social media updates – Jonah Hill introduces himself as the host and Maggie Rogers as the musical guest.
“Hey Maggie, I’m Pete,” Davidson then says. “Do you want to get married?”
After she says no and looks away uncomfortably, Davidson looks back at the camera and says, “0 for 3.”
Davidson was, of course, referring to his recent split from Grande after their highly publicized engagement. He also seemed to be implying that he proposed to his ex Cazzie David, from whom he split just before getting together with Grande.
Grande also retweeted a fan who directly replied to the “SNL” clip, writing, “tag yourself i’m maggie.”
Although Grande’s subtle commentary has since been deleted, the original tweet currently remains in her list of liked tweets.
The “God Is a Woman” songstress also wrote, “hell naw tho,” in an additional tweet, but quickly deleted it.
Grande also subtly acknowledged a fan who condemned others for bringing up painful memories of her relationship with Davidson. Grande simply replied to the tweet with a period, but has since deleted her reply.
“idk why y’all feel the need to dig up her old tweets about him like. they were in love at some point but s— happened,” the fan wrote. “life will go on.”

Just before deleting the entire string of tweets, Grande wrote, “k that’s the last time we do that.”
Although the now deleted tweets were relatively vague, they marked the first time Grande has publicly addressed her breakup with Davidson. In her first outing since the split was reported,she wore a bandage over the “pete” tattoo on her finger. She has since covered another Davidson-inspired tattoo with new ink.
In the “SNL” clip, it appears that Davidson has transformed the tiny A on his neck into a black dot or heart. He previously covered the “Dangerous Woman” tattoo next to it with a black heart.
Davidson previously joked about his numerous Grande-inspired tattoos when he headlined a comedy event called “Judd & Pete for America” at Los Angeles comedy club Largo at the Coronet.
At the event, the 24-year-old mocked his own track record of getting ink inspired by his relationships. Prior to dating Grande, he had a portrait of David tattooed on his arm. He got it covered up before entering into a relationship with Grande.
“Um, I’ve been covering a bunch of tattoos, that’s fun,” Davidson reportedly said onstage. “I’m f—ing 0 for 2 in the tattoo [department]. Yeah, I’m afraid to get my mum tattooed on me, that’s how bad it is.”
