Pete Davidson angrily pushes away excited fan who tries to hug him in awkward altercation

Pete Davidson angrily pushes away excited fan who tries to hug him in awkward altercation

The comedian was filmed at Madison Square Garden after the New York Knicks playoff win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday

Pete Davidson has flipped out at an excited fan for trying to invade his personal space.

While taking a stroll court-side at the New York Knicks playoff winning game over the Cleveland Cavaliers, the comedian was seen angrily pushing a fan out of the way who tried to 'kiss him'.

Watch the awkward exchange unfold below:

The former Saturday Night Live star - who is known for dating some of the most beautiful celebs in the world - had a bizarre experience at Madison Square Garden on Sunday (23 April).

On the court, he would have been delighted with the Knicks picking up a 3-1 series lead against the Cavaliers, who failed to steal a game on the road.

Isaiah Hartenstein was a key component in the victory after his two key swats, plus a steal, contributed to the Knicks pulling away in the fourth quarter.

“Just doing whatever the team needs to win,” Hartenstein said. “I think at that point it’s probably not as much of a scoring spot, doing whatever I can to help the team win.

“I think Mitch did a great job today, especially on the offensive rebounding side and finishing the ball. So I was just trying to help the team when Mitch was out.”

However, off the court, thing got a little spicy.

As big Knicks fan Davidson was filmed taking pics with his supporters, one overly-excited spectator got a little too close for comfort and was subsequently shoved away in the process.

Despite being rattled by the awkward exchange, Davidson carried on smiling for pics.

"It’s so funny when people smile for a picture and then frown right after," one viewer commented.

A second person agreed: "Bro went from being ready to duel to cheesing for a picture to being back to angry in about 4ish seconds."

The awkward encounter was captured by another fan.

"Looked like he was about to kiss him," a third person thought, while another added: "In all the other clips I've seen that guy is there, trying to grab at him.

"He'd obviously been annoying him a while."

Someone else said: "Pete is going out of his way to be nice and take photos with fans. He doesn’t have to.

"I would have reacted the exact same if some strange man approached me like that."

UNILAD has contacted Pete Davidson's representation for comment.
