NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- The University of Central Florida says Pete Davidson's profanity-laced tirade during a gig at the school Monday "spoiled" the back-to-school event.

The "Saturday Night Live" cast member, 25, went off on students who violated his no-cellphone rule during his standup show.

Davidson told the crowd, "That’s what’s f***** up. You were the one filming. That’s right, we’re embarrassing. That’s why the world is going to end in 25 years because you’re all f***** retarded. I meant it that way, idiots. You should f*****  grow up. It says no phones. … You’re just supposed to just like behave. I have to have my boy patrol you guys like you’re 5 years old? That’s f*****  embarrassing."

He continued, "You should grow up ... Where’s the next generation? … Don’t you want your parents to be proud of you? … Now we’ll continue."

The university said in a statement, “Mr. Davidson’s abusive language, particularly his use of a derogatory slur, is contrary to the University of Central Florida’s values of inclusion and respect for all. It’s disappointing that his rant spoiled an event that was meant to welcome students back for the fall semester.”

Davidson's rep has not yet commented.
