In the early hours on Friday Dave Chappelle released a new special dedicated to the George Floyd protest and he doesn’t leave anything unsaid.
The Legend, said he was incensed when he saw Don Lemon on CNN calling for well-known figures to speak out about the death of Floyd.
“[Lemon] says, ‘Where are all these celebrities? Why are you not talking?’ This nigga said, ‘Everybody.’ I was screaming at the TV, ‘I dare you to say me, nigga, I dare you!’ Has anyone ever listened to me doing comedy? Have I not ever said anything about these things before? So now all of a sudden this nigga expects me to step in front of the streets and talk over the work these people are doing as a celebrity.
“Answer me: Do you want to see a celebrity right now? Do we give a fuck what Ja Rule thinks? Does it matter about celebrity? No, this is the streets talking for themselves, they don’t need me right now. I kept my mouth shut. And I’ll still keep my mouth shut. But don’t think my silence is complicit. Why would anyone care what their favorite comedian thinks after they saw a police officer kneel on a man’s neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds?”
He Also turned his attention to the contrarian Candace Owens saying “I’ve seen Candace Owens try to convince white America, ‘Don’t worry about it. He’s a criminal anyway.’ “I don’t give a fuck what this nigga did.”
later on he continued “Candace Owen, that rotten b*tch, she’s the worst. I can’t think of a worse way to make money. She’s the most articulate idiot I’ve ever seen in my fucking life.”
This is gold.
