Florida college blasts comedian and 'SNL' cast member Pete Davidson for telling students at his show to 'f***ing grow up'

Sounds like a real killjoy

Comedian Pete Davidson is taking heat from the University of Central Florida after profanely barking at students using their cellphones at one of his recent sets at the school.

What are the details?

According to Buzzfeed News, a spokesperson for the college said that his conduct was unacceptable.

"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," the spokesperson said in an emailed statement.

"It's disappointing that his rant spoiled an event that was meant to welcome students back for the fall semester," the statement added.

Davidson appeared at the university Monday night as a back-to-school celebration for fall semester students.

During his set, he called students "privileged little a**holes" and demanded they put away their cellphones during the show.

A video uploaded to YouTube shows Davidson, a "Saturday Night Live" cast member, chastising students for having their phones out.

"If you film everything and not enjoy the show for f***in' an hour, then, like, I don't gotta be here," he complained. "I could just give them their money back because I don't give a f***."

He complained at the students for the better part of a minute, with increasing levels of verbal abuse.

"Whenever somebody else comes to your f***in' town and wants to perform and is exhausted and flies all the way to the middle of f***in' nowhere do to jokes for you little privileged a**holes, don't f***in' ruin the show for people who actually wanna be here," he said.

What happened next?

After it seemed to become uncomfortable, Davidson switched gears and laughed off the bizarre rant.

"Now I'll continue," he laughed. "I just wanted to scare you. Just grow up. Don't do that s***."
