Dan Levy's Mom Delivers Message to Her Son's Childhood Bullies as He Makes His Debut on SNL
Dan Levy's mom delivered a message to her son's childhood bullies as he debuted on "Saturday Night Live."
"Schitt's Creek" star Dan Levy's mom delivered a message on Twitter to his childhood bullies as he hosted "Saturday Night Live" the weekend of February 6, 2021.
Levy retweeted his mom's tweet and wrote "Mom" with a heart emoji. Deborah Divine showed her support and love for her son ahead of his "SNL" debut.
In the tweet, she wrote that it was directed to the "punks" at a childhood camp, Camp WTF, Levy had attended in 96. She noted that they had made his life miserable.
With pride, she wrote that she had only seven words for his bullies after all these years, and that was the seven worded catchphrase from the comedy show. She wrote in the tweet:
"Well, after all these years I have just 7 words to say to you: “Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!” @danjlevy."
This is not the first time the "Schitt's Creek" actor and creator's mom has made a public statement sharing the support and love she has for her son.
For the premiere of his TV show's final episode, Deborah shared a touching message for her son on Twitter that had brought the actor to tear.
Levy made a cameo in an M&M commercial for the Super Bowl.
This goes out to the bully punks at Camp WTF who made life miserable for a certain cabin-mate back in the the summer of ‘96 - just because he was different. Well, after all these years I have just 7 words to say to you: “Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!” @danjlevy ❤️— deb d (@tingtime) February 6, 2021
She wrote she regretted all the worries she had while he was growing up. She continued and said that he had kicked the "old world’s ass to the curb" and created a new one.
Levy shared on "The Late Show with James Corden" that her message of support, as well as the emotion of filming, had brought him to tears. He shared with the talk show host:
"I was feeling a lot of emotions, I was trying to keep them in check. And then my mom tweeted that and I read it and completely fell apart. "
Today I regret every single second of worry back in the uninformed 80’s-wondering how the world was going to treat my brilliant little boy who loved to twirl. Little did I know that he was going to kick that old world’s ass to the curb and create a brand new one.@danjlevy ❤️❤️— deb d (@tingtime) April 7, 2020
He shared that her message was "pretty huge" and would have meant a lot to other people as there is a lot of power in the acceptance, support, and encouragement her message had shown.
Besides appearing on SNL this weekend, Levy made a cameo in an M&M commercial for the Super Bowl. In the commercial, he promises Ms. Brown and Ms. Green that he would stop eating their friends.
The video then shows that the red M&M is stuck inside his car. Levy then says, "okay, it might happen one last time." The commercial features other short hilarious clips.
