Comedian Chevy Chase is ignoring claims of his problematic behavior on set by former co-stars.

“I don’t give a crap. I am who I am. And I like who I am. I don’t care. And it’s part of me that I don’t care. And I’ve thought about that a lot. And I don’t know what to tell you, man. I just don’t care,” said Chase regarding the stories about him being a “jerk.”

Many of the SNL veteran’s co-stars have come out and described his behavior as racist, misogynistic and bad-mannered over the years of working alongside him.

Donald Glover spoke with The New Yorker back in 2018 that while working with Chase in the NBC sitcom Community, the comedian would repeatedly make racist jokes on set, one of which was: “People think you’re funnier because you’re black.”

Dan Harmon, the creator of Community, spoke on the matter, supporting Glover.

“Chevy was the first to realize how immensely gifted Donald was, and the way he expressed his jealousy was to try to throw Donald off,” said Harmon. “I remember apologizing to Donald after a particularly rough night of Chevy’s non-P.C. verbiage, and Donald said, ‘I don’t even worry about it.’”

SNL star Pete Davidson revealed his dislike for Chase also in 2018 after Chase criticized the current SNL cast.

“F— Chevy Chase. He’s just a genuinely bad, racist person, and I don’t like him,” said Davidson.

More examples of Chase’s problematic behavior were found in the 2002 book Live From New York: An Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live. The book included a comment from Will Ferrell calling Chase “the worst host.”

“I don’t know if he was on something or what, if he took too many back pills that day or something, but he was just kind of going around the room and systematically riffing,” Ferrell said. “When he got to one of our female writers, he made some reference like, ‘Maybe you can give me a handjob later.’ And I’ve never seen Lorne [Michaels] more embarrassed and red.”
