Retired late night comedian Jay Leno, tanned and well-rested, stopped by the “Late Night with Seth Meyers” show on Thursday and was critical of college students for being too “politically correct” these days.

The former Tonight Show host still does occasional shows on college campuses and said many young people have no idea what racism actually means.

“College kids now are so politically correct. I mean, to the point where — I’ll give you an example, we had interns at the show, college interns,” Leno said. “Like, the last year of the show, one of the interns comes and says, ‘Mr. Leno, I’m getting lunch. what do you want?’ I said, ‘I don’t know, where are you going?’ He said, ‘we’re getting Mexican.’ I said, ‘I don’t really like Mexican.’ He goes, ‘whoa, that’s kind of racist.’ That’s not racist.

“No, being anti-guacamole is not racist, okay?” he continued. “You have no idea what racism is. That’s not racist, you idiot, you moron.”
