Frequently troubled comedian Pete Davidson lost his cool when audience members at the University of Central Florida violated his no-cellphone rule during a standup gig.
“That’s what’s f–ked up. You were the one filming. That’s right, we’re embarrassing. That’s why the world is going to end in 25 years because you’re all f–king retarded,” Davidson, 25, ranted at Monday’s show. “I meant it that way, idiots. You should f–king 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 5 years old? That’s f–king embarrassing.
“You should grow up,” he continued in the middle of his set. “Where’s the next generation? … Don’t you want your parents to be proud of you? … Now we’ll continue.”
He then apparently tried to turn things around with a sightly more motivational approach, but that didn’t exactly work.
“imagine going on a 5 minute … rant about how you hate millennials recording s–t and then tryna backtrack into making it a motivational speech we ain’t even pay to see this s–t;;;; reLAX!” the showgoer tweeted.
“it was a S–T SHOW! he went on a whole rant bcs a few ppl were recording and he started yelling about how we need to grow up and that we’re r-words and bitches and then he was like mad bcs no one was LAUGHING! u could feel the tension and how uncomfortable it was.”
In a statement, the university called Davidson’s behavior “disappointing” saying:
“Mr. Davidson’s abusive language, particularly his use of a derogatory slur, is contrary to the University of Central Florida’s values of inclusion and respect for all. It’s disappointing that his rant spoiled an event that was meant to welcome students back for the fall semester.”
Pete has yet to comment.
