Rob Schneider gave a scathing interview about Will Smith.

“Will Smith is a t---,” Schneider said on The Kyle & Jackie O Show. "Will Smith has been hiding the fact of who he really is and it was exposed that night that he’s really an a-------."

"It’s a deep, dark thing to do that in front of all those people and to a really great legendary comedian, who’s literally the best comedian of our generation. You wouldn’t have this whole wave of comedy that came after if it wasn’t for Chris Rock. He’s kicked open the doors," Schneider, 60, added about Smith, whom he called a "complete, utter fraud."

“Will is a douchebag,” Rob said. “The thing is that’s how politically correct the Academy is. That they were so cowardly because if I would have done that, they would have been hauled off to prison.”

Rob claimed the Academy was "so worried about being racist or whatever" that it took them some time to take action against Will.

“I don’t blame him. But it took him a while to get to where he could react to it because it was a lot,” he said. “He’s a very sensitive, great guy and he’s literally a genius."

“So, just trying to figure out the right way at the right timing, it was him because I would have said something. I’m an idiot. I would have … tried to kick back," he concluded.
