Pete Davidson blasted University of Central Florida students for violating a no cell phone rule during his standup set, calling them the r-word and "privileged little a**holes." Naturally, the comedian's rant was posted on social media.
"You film everything, but not enjoy the show for a f***ing hour then, like, I don't gotta be here, I can just give them their money back 'cause I don't give a f***," Davidson said. "Whenever somebody else comes to your f***ing town and wants to perform and is exhausted and flies all the way to the middle of f***ing nowhere to do jokes for you, you privileged little f***s, don't f***ing ruin the show for people who actually want to be here."
Some students in the audience started clapping, which irked the Saturday Night Live star even more.
"No, don't clap 'cause like half of you did it," he fumed. "That’s what’s f***ed up about our generation... You were the one filming, moron. That’s why we’re embarrassing. That’s why the world is gonna end in 25 years because you’re all f***ing retarded."
Davidson continued, "Yeah, I meant it that way, idiots. You should f***ing grow up. It says no phones. … You’re just supposed to just, like, behave. I have to have my boy patrol you guys like you’re five years old? That’s f***ing embarrassing. You should grow up. Where's the next generation? ... Grow the f*** up."
The comedian attempted to lighten the mood by laughing it off, "Now I'll continue. I just wanted to scare you." But added, again, "Just grow up, don't do that s***, seriously."
According to TMZ, Davidson's tirade came several minutes into his set, but his intro didn't include much comedic material. After his rant, he did a brief Q&A, but said he was only staying because he had to wait for his Uber. Audience members claimed there were no signs posted about prohibiting cell phone use, nor were they warned by the MC or the two performers who came on stage prior to Davidson.
Videos of Davidson quickly went viral and students had a lot to say about the experience.
