Pete Davidson Takes Shots At Chevy Chase Over Disparaging Comments About 'SNL'


Comedian Pete Davidson expressed his hate toward Chevy Chase after he had commented that sketch show Saturday Night Live has the worst humor in the planet.

Davidson slammed Chase during his appearance on SiriusXM's The Howard Stern Show on Monday. According to Chase, he was shocked that Lorne Michaels, the show's creator, went to such a low level.

The SNL cast member defended Michaels and said that what Chase said was very disrespectful to the person who was responsible for his career.

 "No matter how big you get, you can't forget what that guy did for you," he said.

According to Davidson, the 74-year-old was immensely terrible and racist. He also said that he did not like him. Aside from sharing his thoughts on Chase, the comedian also talked about his relationship with singer Ariana Grande and his drug use.

The SNL cast talked about how he finally got together with his fiancée and how he is very attracted to the singer. He also shared that when they started seeing each other, he even dared to look up hot men on the internet just to second guess himself.

Furthermore, Davidson opened up about his experience with drug use and said that he had to check himself into rehab two years ago because he had too much access to prohibited drugs and he could not stop. He also talked about how marijuana aids him to manage his issues with his health. The actor is suffering from a borderline personality disorder and Crohn's disease.

Accusations Of Racism

Notably, Chase was accused of racism before. He became viral six years ago when he used the N-word as he had a heated discussion with series writer and creator, Dan Harmon.

Additionally, Chase tried to disturb actor and singer Donald Glover's scenes and also made tactless jokes when they were shooting for Community. Chase had replied to the issue by saying that he was sad that his co-star misunderstood his joke and saw him as racist.

Although Chase belonged to the hit show's first cast when it debuted in 1975, he said that he did not like the current award-winning show, which is now on its 44th season.

"It just drives me nuts," he said.

He added that it equates to a whole generation of people laughing at the worst humor in the world. He even said that the show decreased its quality after the first two years of its airing.

Chase did not just highlight his negative feelings for the new cast, but for most seasons of the show.
