Dan Levy's Mom Calls Out His Childhood 'Bully Punks'

"This goes out to the bully punks at Camp WTF who made life miserable for a certain cabin-mate back in the summer of '96," Deborah Divine tweeted.

Just like on his hit show, Schitt's Creek, Dan Levy has one heck of a mom in real life.

Ahead of her son's first appearance hosting Saturday Night Live this past weekend, Deborah Divine tweeted a message calling out the childhood bullies who tortured her son as a child. "This goes out to the bully punks at Camp WTF who made life miserable for a certain cabin-mate back in the summer of '96 - just because he was different," she tweeted.

Then she added the knockout punch, "Well, after all these years I have just 7 words to say to you: "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!" Levy retweeted the message of support adding, "Moms." and a heart emoji.

This isn't the first time Divine has tweeted out loving, supporting messages to the Schitt's Creek creator and star. Back in April, she tweeted a tribute to her son that he read on The Late Late Show with James Corden.

"Today I regret every single second of worry back in the uninformed 80's-wondering how the world was going to treat my brilliant little boy who loved to twirl," Divine tweeted. "Little did I know that he was going to kick that old world's ass to the curb and create a brand new one."

When Levy read the tweet to James Corden, he teared up. "I was a complete mess. It completely killed me," Levy said to Corden about the tweet. "I was teetering on the brink of being okay, It was the last day [of the show], I was feeling a lot of emotions, I was trying to keep them in check. And then my mom tweeted that and I read it and completely fell apart. Had just a solid cry."

Like her son, daughter, and husband, who all starred in Schitt's Creek, Divine also works in Hollywood, having produced TV series like Another World and The Higgins Boys and Gruber, and working as a writer for the Canadian sitcom Maniac Mansion in the 1990s.

Levy's performance on SNL was praised by fans, especially for a spoof PSA for the It Gets Better Project. In the spot, Levy, Punkie Johnson, Kate McKinnon, and Bowen Yang appeared as adults giving updates on how their lives have and have not improved over the years.
