“Saturday Night Live” star Pete Davidson hit show alum Chevy Chase on Monday, calling the former cast member of a “putz”, while defending his boss, Lorne Michaels.

Davidson, during an appearance on “The Howard Stern Show,” stolen back at Chase, who last week said that the iconic NBC show in the “worst f—— humor in the world.”


“He is a f—— douchebag,” Davidson, 24, reportedly said. “F— Chevy Chase. He is just a really bad, racist person and I do not like him. He is a putz.”

Chase, 74, was one of SNL’s first cast members. He told The Washington Post he was surprised at the tone of the author, Michaels, “has gone so low.”

“I just couldn’t f—— believe it,” Chase said. “That means that a whole generation of the s—heads laughing at the worst f—— humor in the world.”

Davidson, who was one of the youngest members when he joined a 20-year-old, questioned that Chase was such a “disrespectful” comments.


“What has he done since ’83? Nothing,” Davidson said. “He had a great career and then it’s quiet, because everyone realized that he is a jerkoff. He must know more than anyone else.”

He continued: “It is disrespectful to Lorne, also a man who gave you a career. Doesn’t matter how big you get, you can’t forget what that guy has done for you.”

However, Taran Killam, another former-SNL-cast-member, who was booted from the show in 2016, said Chase was allowed to have his own opinion on the sketch comedy series.

“I think that for a comedy to remain important and relevant is to continue to grow and the needs change in time, so I certainly understand if the comedy that he is in the holes because he left is not to his liking, but I’m not agree that it is still not as good as the first two seasons, or that first season he was on because I was in that box DVD set,” Killam said. “It is at best mediocre.”

Chase, who made an appearance at SNL’s 40th Anniversary Special in 2015, won three Emmy Awards for his work on the show. He played in the show during its first and a half season.
