#HMBlog: Pete Davidson scolds University of Central Florida students over their filming during his show.
Pete Davidson has had a tough go the past few years. He was suicidal over his break up with Ariana Grande, felt the fallout from a joke about Congressman Dan Crenshaw and his war injury and most recently he scolded some UCF kids this past weekend over filming on their phones when there was a strict no-cellphone rule.
Ironically, some student got the scolding on video and uploaded it to YouTube:
Many comedians have decided not to perform for college students anymore. Jerry Seinfeld has advised fellow funny-people to avoid campuses altogether. Aside from some hurt feelings from the kids who took to Twitter the real problem emerged, Pete used the “R WORD” which has become a big time no-no. Tom Segura faced severe backlash for using the word during his last special “Disgraceful” (which was fantastic & if you’re a comedy fan you should check it out).
The University of Central Florida put out a statement in they found the event “disappointing”:
So, I think you can expect some heat to head Pete’s way over a word with a dictionary entry that actually means something & not so much for him calling a bunch of brats “brats”. We live in a retar…stupid time.
