    Actor Rob Schneider claims Bill Murray wasn't amused by him or several other big-time comedians back in their "Saturday Night Live" days.

    Schneider recalled the details during a recent appearance on SiriusXM's "The Jim Norton & Sam Roberts Show," Fox News reported.

    "[Murray] wasn't very nice to us," the "Grown Ups" alum said of his former co-star. "He hated us on 'Saturday Night Live' when he hosted. Absolutely hated us. I mean, seething."

    "He hated Chris Farley with a passion. Like he was just seething looking at him," Schneider continued. He speculated that may have been because Murray was friends with the late John Belushi, who Farley emulated.

    "I don't know exactly, but I want to believe that it's because Chris thought it was cool to be Belushi, who [was] his friend who he saw die, that he thought it was cool to be that out of control. That's my interpretation, but I don't really know. I don't believe it. I only believe it 50 percent."

    Schneider said again that Murray "just hated, like, all of us pretty much" but said "the least of the hate was to me."

    "I took great pleasure in that he hated me less, because he's my hero," he explained, before describing Murray's demeanor as "naked rage." He said Murray was kind to fans and non-actors but despised fellow comedians at "SNL" when he guest hosted, including Adam Sandler.

    Schneider explained that he "couldn't say exactly what it was" but Murray "just wasn't into that groove of it, you know?

    "And Sandler was just committed to it, and just like, as soon as he would get on, you could see the audience just ate him up," the actor said.

    Murray was part of the main "SNL" cast from 1977 through 1980 and guest hosted various shows after that. The publication noted that Murray was a guest host in 1993 when Schneider, Sandler, and Farley were all part of the main cast.

    Meanwhile, Murray has been dealing with negative press as his most recent movie "Being Mortal" was forced to shut down when a crew member accused the 72-year-old actor of sexual misconduct. The Daily Wire reported that Murray was allegedly "kissing" and "straddling" the "much younger" woman on set. She and the actor entered mediation and reached a settlement of $100,000.

    "I did something I thought was funny, and it wasn't taken that way," Murray said in April of the incident. "The company, the movie studio, wanted to do the right thing, so they wanted to check it all out, investigate it, and so they stopped the production."

    "And I feel like if I don't see that, you know, the world is different than it was when I was a little kid," he continued. "You know, what I always thought was funny as a little kid isn't necessarily the same as what's funny now. Things change and the times change, so it's important for me to figure it out."
