Dave Chappelle finally responded to all the fallout surrounding his criticized performance last week in Hartford, Conn., saying he hopes North Korea drops a nuclear bomb on the city. Chappelle's comments came as he took the stage in Chicago on Tuesday night. Chappelle called the crowd in Hartford a bunch of "young, white alcoholics" according to TMZ on Wednesday, Sept. 4.
As comic Dave Chappelle took the stage at his show in Chicago last night, he wasted no time in addressing the Hartford fiasco.
"I don't want anything bad to happen to the United States", he said, "but if North Korea ever drops a nuclear bomb on this country, I swear to God I hope it lands in Hartford, Connecticut". Wow!
In his Connecticut appearance, the comic walked off the stage after first sitting silent, smoking a butt, and then reading from a book. Click here to read more about his reportedly less-than-stellar act.
Chappelle admitted in the end that the crowd in Hartford was lucky to see him "freak out" that night.
The comic made an analogy to it being like the night in Las Vegas, when the tiger attack happened during the Sigfried and Roy show.
Mr. Chappelle should maybe think twice before booking his next Connecticut appearances. Will they miss him?
