Michael Rapaport Slams Ariana Grande & Pete Davidson in New Interview

Michael Rapaport has some harsh words for Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson.

The 48-year-old comedian slammed the 26-year-old “7 Rings” singer and the 25-year-old SNL cast member in a new interview on You Up with Nikki Glaser on SiriusXM’s Comedy Central Radio – where he blamed Ariana for Pete‘s suicide tweet.

“This is f–king Ariana Grande’s fault,” Michael said. “I’m not apologizing for this s–t anyway! I was, like, because in twenty years she’s going to be like Mariah Carey, f–king up the lyrics to her own song, drunk at a New Year’s thing.”

Michael then took aim at Pete saying, “I was annoyed with this f–king guy and his f–king suicide attempt note, and then not apologizing for it. That really offended me.”

Michael continues: “The fact that he’s come back and didn’t acknowledge — ‘Yo to all my fans, to the New York City police department, to the people I work with and all my fans that were worried — I apologize for saying that.’ We’re glad you’re good, but you freaked everybody out.”

This isn’t the first time Michael has slammed Ariana. Back in December 2018, he commented on her appearance saying, “I think there’s hotter women working the counter at Starbucks.”

Neither Ariana or Pete have addressed Michael‘s comments yet.

Liev Schreiber Got Hit Over 800 Times for 'Chuck' - Watch Trailer!

Liev Schreiber went above and beyond to star as real-life fighter Chuck Wepner, who fought Muhammad Ali at the peak of his career but then spiraled into a life of alcohol and cocaine, in his latest film.

To make the boxing scenes more realistic in Chuck, the 49-year-old actor decided to do the all the fights himself, and at one point was left with hazy vision after taking 800 punches.

“By the end of the fourth day of shooting, I wasn’t seeing so good, but I think it was worth it,” Liev joked (via NY Daily News). “What really grabbed me about ‘Chuck‘ was the pitfall of celebrity and fame. His was a kind of cautionary tale about the dangers of that particular kind of narcissism – the desire to be loved by the anonymous mob and not the individuals to whom we are truly connected, which is something I think a lot of people can relate to.”

Pictured: Liev hitting the red carpet with his co-stars Pooch Hall, Wass Stevens and Michael Rapaport at the Los Angeles premiere of Chuck held on Tuesday (May 2) in Hollywood.
