People weren’t laughing as comedian Pete Davidson fumed onstage about the audience using cellphones to record during his latest stand-up gig in Orlando.

The “Saturday Night Live” comic ripped crowd members as “idiots” and told them they “should grow up” after noticing people with their phones out at his set Sunday at the University of Central Florida.

The audience began to cheer at one point toward the beginning of the rant, but Davidson urged them to stop clapping, saying, “like half of you did it.”

"That's why we're embarrassing,” Davidson said, as seen in video recorded at the show. “That's why the world is gonna end in 25 years, because you're all f---ing retarded."

Audience members seemed unsure how to react as Davidson, 25, lamented the cellphone use. Some people chuckled early on when he called the audience “privileged little a--holes,” but stopped laughing as the comedian progressed.

People who were there told TMZ that there weren’t any signs prohibiting cellphone use during the show. Students could attend the show for free, while tickets for non-students went for $20, according to the celebrity gossip website.

Several social media users who said they were at the show described the scene afterwards.

"My favorite part about Pete Davidson at UCF is when he told us we were lame and that he could just text up all his comedian friends and they would never come to our school as if he was thanos or something,” wrote a Twitter user named Sammi.
