Pete Davidson Ruthlessly Roasts Novak Djokovic On Saturday Night Live

Pete Davidson has zero chill, mocking Novak Djokovic's deportation from Australia in the latest episode of Saturday Night Live.

Djokovic made countless headlines over the past month after having his visa cancelled at the Australian border over his Covid-19 vaccination stance.

After spending time in detention in Melbourne, the world No.1 was eventually deported back to Serbia, meaning he was unable to defend his Australian Open crown.

A bunch of people have weighed in on the series of events, including American comedian and actor Davidson - who has perhaps served up the most savage take yet.

"Call me by my nickname, the Joker," Davidson said.

"Although right now I'm the least popular Joker, except for Jared Leto.

"I went to Australia and my visa was denied, but then I appealed to the judge and this was his ruling..."

A clip of hawkeye showing a ball being out then played on the screen.

"People love to tear you off your pedestal just because you're really rich or you're the best at tennis or you go to a charity event with 200 kids even though you're dripping with Covid," Davidson added.

"But in my heart I know that one day people will look back on this moment in history and think, 'Who cares?'"

The co-host then finished the segment by saying: "See you at Wimbledon."

To which Davidson replied: "Probably not."
