Dan Levy’s mother brilliantly called out his school bullies before he hosted ‘SNL’

Dan Levy hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time last night alongside musician Phoebe Bridgers. And his mother wasn’t about to waste the opportunity to call out anyone who put her son down in the past. 

Levy’s mother Deborah Devine shared a tweet ahead of his SNL performance to mark the occasion. 

It read:  “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!'" 

The 37-year-old "Schitt's Creek" star retweeted his mom’s sweet note, writing: “Moms ♥️”

Twitter parents seemed to really appreciate the call out.

"Love a mom with a grudge list of people who were mean to their kid," one mother wrote. "I have mine and it will go with me to my grave. My queer kid is amazing. Just like yours."

Another added: "In my experience, it’s all the weird kids that end up running the world in the end :) they find their way!"

Levy’s SNL debut went down a storm with viewers. Keeping things in the family, he was joined by his dad and co-star Eugene Levy, who made a hilarious cameo.
