“This man knelt down on a man’s neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds. Can you imagine ?!” Chappelle says during his stop. “This kid thought he was going to die, he knew he was going to die. He asked his dead mother.”
Chappelle noted that the terrifying “8:46” is also the time of day the comedian was born.
Just from the bat, Chappelle acknowledges that the socially remote show, which was filmed on June 6 in Ohio’s Yellow Springs, is “strange and less than ideal for a show.”
He gets nice for everything, from Floyd’s death to the media to a set that is heavier on the observations than the funny ones.
“What do you mean you can kneel on a man’s neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds and feel like you’re not getting God’s wrath?” Chappelle said. “It’s happening right now. It’s not about a police officer, it’s about everything.”
He was fired by CNN’s Don Lemon, who accused celebrities of “sitting in your mansions and doing nothing.”
“Does it matter to celebrity? No,” Chapel said. “These are the roads that speak for themselves. I don’t need them now.”
The comic also had harsh words about conservative commentator Candace Owens and Fox TV host Laura Ingraham.
