‘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,’ Deborah wrote, referring to her Schitt’s Creek star son.  

‘Well, after all these years I have just 7 words to say to you: “Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!”‘ Deborah concluded with obvious parental pride.

She then tagged her son, along with a red heart emoji.

In April of last year, Divine tweeted an adorable message to her son on the occasion of hit series Schitt’s Creek’s series finale.

‘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,’ Deborah penned at the time. 

‘Little did I know that he was going to kick that old world’s ass to the curb and create a brand new one. @danjlevy’
