Pete Davidson fired back at Chevy Chase after the former SNL star paid plenty of disrespect to the show’s current cast in The Washington Post last week. “He’s a f-cknig douchebag,” Davidson told The Howard Stern Show. “He’s just a genuinely bad, racist person, and I don’t like him… f-ck him,” Davidson continued.

In a long profile cataloguing Chase’s disputes with actors and other creatives over the past decades, Chase said of Davidson and his current SNL co-stars, “I don’t want to put down Lorne or the case, but I’ll just say, maybe off the record, I’m amazed that Lorne has gone so low. I had to watch a little of it, and I just couldn’t f-cking believe it,” Chase told The Washington Post.

Davidson’s tirade continued, expressing his anger at a former SNL cast member for throwing the generations that followed him under the bus. “What has he done since ‘83? Like, nothing,” Davidson said. “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,” Davidson continued.
