'You Should F**king Grow Up': Pete Davidson Slammed After Vitriolic Rant At Audience
Performing at the University of Central Florida, the 'Saturday Night Live' comedian best known for dating Ariana Grande unleashed on the audience.
Davidson was in Orlando for UFC's Pegasus Palooza, their "official Welcome Week", performing to uni students who had returned for their Fall semester. According to Davidson's rant, he was unhappy that members of the audience were using their phones.
Those in attendance said there were no signs or requests not to use phones, but that didn't prevent Davidson from calling the crowd "privileged little assholes", blasting their school and their generation (despite being 25-years-old and therefore... the same generation).
"That’s why we’re embarrassing. That’s why the world is going to end in 25 years," Davidson continued, "You should f**king grow up."
Ironically while Davidson continued his spat about people filming his show -- one audience member captured the uncomfortable moment in a video.
During the rant, Davidson also called the audience "f**king r**arded", telling them that their parents would never be proud of them.
Following the tirade, the university released a statement in response 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."
