Dave Chappelle on the Jussie Smollett Incident | Netflix Is A Joke


– [Dave Chappelle] I’m just
afraid of being attacked. It happens to the best of us. Don’t ever forget what happened to that French actor. You know who I’m talking bout? Jussie Smollett. He’s a very French, very
famous French actor. (audience laughs) Y’all never heard of Jussie Smollett? (audience laughs) Jussie Smollett is a actor from France. (audience laughs) And he became famous on
a show called Empire. One night, he was in Chicago late at night and was the victim, (laughs)
(audience laughs) he was the victim of a
racist and homophobic attack. You see, Jussie Smollett is (audience laughs) gay and he is black. Not just French. (audience laughs) Oh, it was a crazy story. Apparently, when he was walking down
the street late at night two white men came out of the shadows with MAGA hats on and beat him up. Tied a rope around his neck, called him all kinds of n**** and put some bleach on him
and ran off into the night. (audience laughs) The shit was like international news. And everybody was furious, especially in Hollywood. It was all over everybody’s Twitter feed and Instagram page. “Justice for Jussie!” and all this shit. (audience laughs) The whole country was up in arms. Was talking about it all
the time on the news. And for some reason, African Americans, we
were like oddly quiet. (audience laughs) We was so quiet about the shit that the gay community started accusing African
American community of being homophobic
for not supporting him. What they didn’t understand is that we were supporting him with our silence. (audience laughs) Because we understood that this n**** was clearly lying. (audience applauds) None of these details added up at all. He said he’s walking down
the street in Chicago and white dudes come up to him and say, “Hey man, aren’t you that
f*** n*** from Empire?” What the f***? Does that sound like
how white people talk? I know white people, they
don’t talk like that. Are you that f*** n*** from Empire? They would never say that. It sounds like something that I would say. (audience laughs) If you’re a racist and homophobic you’re not even gonna
know who this n*** is. You can’t watch Empire. (audience laughs) Black people never feel
sorry for the police but this time we even
felt sorry for the police. Can you imagine if you
was a police veteran taking this kids police report? “Okay Mr. Smollett, please
tell me what happened? “Alright, two a.m. You
left the house at two a.m., “it was minus 16 degrees. (audience laughs)
“Alright. “You were walking? You
were walking. Alright. (audience laughs) “And where were you going? “Subway?” “Sandwiches?” (audience laughs) “That’s when the men approached you? “Did you see them? Did you have any– “Okay, what did they have on? “MAGA hats?! (audience laughs) “MAGA hats on in Chicago? “Excuse me one second Mr. Smollett “Frank, come here for a second. (audience laughs) “Find out where Kanye West was last night” (audience laughs)
