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

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)

  1. 0:14 , the white dude in the middle of the screen. Watch his face. A 15 second shot of pure confusion.
    EDIT: And we're back at 0:42. He still doesn't get it.

  2. As a gay man, I can tell EVERYONE that this man speaks the truth and he’s a true ally to the LGBTQ+ community too. Some people can’t take a joke without being so damn literal to context that you forget that…it’s satire.

  3. That scattered laughter from the audience when he said Juicy smuliyay was just amazingly genuine and real. They were broken to bits with tht name. I just love tht part.

  4. 0:14

    Look at the white dude in the crowd waiting for the punchline.

    "Why are all these black people laughing, who is Juicy Smoliet?"

  5. As an African American Female Democrat, I stand by Dave Chappelle and the truth will set you free. Jussie Smollett did a disservice, dishonor and he disrespected my ancestors who actually did experience racist traumatic experiences. He is a liar and I honestly knew something wasn't right when I heard him speak on Robins show.

  6. Rotten Tomatoes is a review platform. When this show was trash by the left-wing reviewers, people gang up on the RT, instead of the critics.

  7. This special isn't his best work and is knowingly offensive and bold, but it is still better and more nuanced than most forms comedic entertainment today. Dave is so much more than a comedian, but the point is what he says, he says as a comedian and that is important to understand.

  8. Whenever I’m feeling down, I come to this. I miss his show in Comedy Central, I know I was too young to be watching it but man. 😁

  9. This is what happens when the demand for racism exceeds the supply.
    At least we get some good jokes and some really good looking noose neckties

  10. I'm from Chicago & I promise now one was leaving their home 2 walk annnnnnnnywhereeeeeeee that particular day to get Any type of sandwich let alone a Subway sandwich🤣. FUTURE MORE it was so called that particular day uber and Lyft offered free rides. 2nd of anyone from chicago know everything u need can be delivered 2 u. #3 Believe u me as a Chicagoan 2 random fellows were not walking around lower Wacker drive with rope and bleach where any baseball ( caps) because it was that darn freezing not cold freeeeeezzzzing…# 4 2 have gotten beat up and jumped he had a little scratch. Apparently from 2 rough hateful men….. alllllllllllll nonsense he embarrassed us a CITY.. (we can do that by ourselves) ….

  11. Everything Dave said proves what a crock the Jussie hoax was…It was al a hoax, orchestrated because he wanted to blame white men Trump supporters, walking around in Chicago!!! Yeah Right

  12. He is so right, every brother in my area said he was full of shit. To quote "Man, I don't even know why he'd say some shit like that, they know man, they know."

  13. How does this have 4.5 thousand dislikes. This was hilarious. Put it this way, if it were true, he wouldn't even bring it up. But anyone stupid enough to lie and try to divide America into hate group's should be locked up for false accusations. But the left, the LGBTQ community should've been upset w/ him because if someone really gets profiled and this happen's, it will raise concern's if it's true or not. Not to mention,it's comedy, if you don't like it, keep scrolling

  14. I hope one day someone will man up and tell it like it is. That those buying front row seats in comedy shows have the least sense of humor and therefore never never ever get the point as they are raised differently.

  15. désolé, mais ce smollet dont vous parlez n'est en rien français, et surtout on en a jamais entendu parler en france.

    Smollet looks more like a "lord of the rings" name.

    Kanye was trying to sell his sh1t to his new found customers, christians, 'cause he found jesus you know, so buy his album, sheep !
    xD
