Pete Davidson Loses His Cool During College Stand Up Comedy Show, Calls Students the R-Word
Pete Davidson went on a profanity-filled rant during a stand-up show at the University of Central Florida, calling the college crowd "privileged little a--holes" and the R-word.
While everyone was watching the 2019 MTV VMAs on Monday night (August 26), the Saturday Night Live comedian tore into his audience after he noticed some of the students were recording him with their phones. “I don’t have to be here. I can just give them their money back because I don’t give a f--k,” he yelled.
The crowd laughed at first, but the room got quiet as his rant got more verbally abusive. “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 little privileged assholes,” he continued.
“That’s why we’re embarrassing. That’s why the world is going to end in 25 years...Idiots. You should f--king grow," Davidson, who's only 25 years old, added before using the R-word.

Following his performance, a number of UCF students took to Twiter to complain about Davidson's offensive rant.
Even a UFC spokesperson released a statement regarding his behavior:
“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,” Mark Schlueb told BuzzFeed News. “It’s disappointing that his rant spoiled an event that was meant to welcome students back for the fall semester.”
