For those of you who missed it, last week Dave Chappelle walked off stage in Hartford, Conn. after members of the mostly all white audience refused to stop yelling catchphrases from Chappelle Show at him forcing him to take a seat, smoke a cigarette and chat with the front row until his contracted time was up. At which point, he got up and left and told the booing audience that they were only booing themselves. Naturally, this spurred shitheads in online comment threads to say things like, “Hey, Dave Chappelle is a comedian, and if he can’t take the hecklin’, then he should just git out.” Except Dave Chappelle has a noted history of walking away from 55 millions of dollars to keep doing Chappelle Show after he found himself in meetings with white network execs making him justify using the word “nigger” in his sketches and having white people run up to him yelling, “I’m Rick James, bitch!” because that’s all they took from the show instead of the goddamn brilliant satire. And what happened in Hartford was basically an extension of that, and Dave Chappelle will shut that shit down if he knows he’s being made to shuck and jive. Which brings us to two nights ago in Chicago where Dave still performed – most assumed he’d bail on the rest of the Funny or Die Presents The Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival – and explained what happened in Hartford along with wishing it be atom smashed out of existence. TMZ reports:
“I don’t want anything bad to happen to the United States,” Chappelle said … “but if North Korea ever drops a nuclear bomb on this country, I swear to God I hope it lands in Hartford, Connecticut.”
Chappelle then called the crowd “evil” … and described them as a bunch of “young, white alcoholics.”
“I wanted to pull a reverse Kramer and call them all crackers or something crazy like that.”
How do I put this without making it look like I’m racist who assumes all black guys meet under the cover of darkness to plot nefarious deeds, but has anyone else noticed Dennis Rodman conveniently went back to North Korea this week? That doesn’t seem odd to anyone? Okay, then what about that black guy in the White House who just asked Congress for a bunch of bombs? Don’t tell me that’s a coincidence. FALSE FLAGS!
