The comedian posted a bunch of photos in tribute to his late dad but not before first cracking a crass joke — check out the tweets (below):

Aww. While some people might find the above joke off color, it’s not uncommon to use humor as a way of coping with loss! Actually, it makes A LOT of sense that the 21-year-old is a successful comic!

Considering Davidson is the youngest member EVER of the SNL cast, we bet his dad would have been SO proud! Stay strong, Pete!
