Saturday Night Live's Pete Davidson has accepted the apology The League actor Steve Rannazzisi issued earlier today, after confessing that he lied about escaping from the Twin Towers on 9/11. Davidson lost his father in the attacks on the World Trade Center.

Meanwhile, FX has issued a statement addressing Rannazzisi's actions.

"We are disappointed to learn that Steve Rannazzisi lied about being in the World Trade Center on 9/11. It is upsetting that he would fabricate a story about having survived that horrible tragedy. It is also unfortunate that he did not admit to the truth sooner. That said, we believe Steve is sincere in his apology and will do everything he can to make amends moving forward," the statement reads.

Comedy Central, which has scheduled Rannazzisi's stand-up special Breaking Dad for Saturday, is currently deciding whether to air it.
