12 Hilarious 'Pete Davidson's Native NYC' Memes That Deserve Their Own 'SNL' Segment

Pete Davidson has always been a proud New Yorker, but the internet has taken it to a whole new level—all because of an oddly-phrased headline.

The internet is ablaze with romance rumors about Davidson, 27, and Kim Kardashian, 41, after they were photographed holding hands on a rollercoaster at Knott's Scary Farm in California over the weekend.

While the pair have not confirmed they are dating and are said to just be friends, that hasn't stopped people from speculating about a potential spark. Newsweek has contacted representatives of both Kardashian and Davidson for comment.

As a consequence, the SNL star has been trending online for days now, as people highlight his impressive dating history. But the cherry on top for most online commentators was Page Six's Twitter caption on a story about Kardashian's return to the Big Apple, in which they referred to the city as "Pete Davidson's native NYC."

While this has triggered many a meme and reaction, here are just 12 worth checking out.

How the "Pete Davidson's native NYC" meme started

It all started when Page Six posted an article about Kardashian arriving in New York City. However, in order to drop Davidson's name into the caption, they decided to call the city "Pete Davidson's native NYC"—cue the memes.
