Pete Davidson shared a photo of his firefighter father, Scott, who died in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Sunday, September 11 marks 21 years since the tragedy and the day Scott, a New York City firefighter, was killed at the age of 33.
He had been sent to the World Trade Center after a second hijacked plane hit the South Tower.
Davidson was seven and his younger sister Casey was three when their father died trying to save lives.
That Saturday night live star shared a picture of Scott smiling and wearing his fireman’s uniform on his Instagram Stories.
Casey, meanwhile, wrote on Instagram: “This year I wish more than ever that you could be here. We miss you, we celebrate you and we remember you every day. Proud to be your Caseygirl.”
She also shared a picture from New York’s 9/11 Memorial and Museum, which has her father’s name engraved on a bronze plaque, along with the 3,000 people who died that day in 2001.
Pete has previously spoken about his personal experience of grief and how it relates to the 2020 film The King of Staten Islandwhich he wrote down.
In the film, his character comes to terms with the loss of his own father on September 11th.
“It’s definitely difficult to revisit firefighters and that aspect,” he said Yahoo! entertainment back then.
“But I really have to give it up [director, co-writer and co-producer Judd Apatow] and co-writer Dave Sirus and the cast and crew for making it so easy for me. They were such family and so sensitive to my feelings and they made everything right.”
