Pete Davidson is typically a pretty chill guy.
But he is not taking those Chevy Chase jabs lying down!

In case you missed it, the SNL alum panned the new cast in a Washington Post interview earlier this week, saying:
“I’m amazed that Lorne [Michaels] has gone so low. I had to watch a little of it, and I just couldn’t f**king believe it. That means a whole generation of s**theads laughs at the worst f**king humor in the world. You know what I mean? How could you dare give that generation worse s**t than they already have in their lives? It just drives me nuts.”
Obviously this isn’t the first time the Vacation star has criticized the show, which he says went downhill “after the first two years.” You know, right after he left.
Well, when Howard Stern asked Pete about that, the gloves came off! Pete replied:
“He’s a f**king douchebag. F**k Chevy Chase. I hate that dude. He’s just a genuinely bad, racist person and I don’t like him. F**k him. He’s a putz. I don’t like him.”
Ouch! He continued:
“What has he done since ’83? Like, nothing. He had a really big career and then it stopped because everybody realized he’s a jerkoff… He should know more than anybody. It’s just like disrespectful to Lorne, too, a guy who gave you a career. No matter how big you get, you can’t forget like, what that guy did for you.”
This is far from Chase’s first feud, but we’re not sure we’ve ever seen him served so effortlessly!
Innerestingly, the section was REMOVED from the SiriusXM show in later airings.
Pete’s publicist denied to TheWrap that he had requested it be taken down. A Sirius insider said sometimes pieces are just edited out for subsequent versions.
Um, boring ones. Not fighting words like these. Not unless someone demands it.
Is NBC looking to quiet down any feud between future and past SNL stars?
What do YOU think is going on??
