Dave Chappelle Slams Katt Williams For Dissing Other Comedians

Dave Chappelle does not agree that Katt Williams’ viral interview insulting some of his peers has been good for comedy.

Chappelle criticized Williams taking aim at Ice Cube and Kevin Hart, among others, when Williams appeared earlier this month on the Club Shay Shay podcast. Chappelle spoke out when he appeared on stage at MonDERAYS at the Hollywood Improv on Jan. 19, an event hosted by comedian DeRay Davis.

The Williams interview blew up virally and was even referenced last night on Saturday Night Live

Williams also had comments about Cedric the Entertainer and Steve Harvey in his Club Shay Shay rants.

Although Chappelle is known for a strict no-cellphone policy during his sets, segments of his Williams bit circulated on social media.

“What part of the game is this? He ethered n**gas. He didn’t say anything about any of these white boys. None of these white boys function like that,” said Chappelle. “Katt is one of the best painters in the game. So why are you drawing ugly pictures of us? Stop. Hurt people hurt people, but I am a hurt person that never hurt people, and he does it all the time.”

Impersonating Williams, Chapelle said, “‘F**k this one, and f**k that one, and f**k this one,’” before adding, “but, n**ga, I didn’t hear anything that you did wrong. He didn’t do nothin’ wrong? Katt didn’t do nothin’ wrong?… Katt was talking about s**t that n**gas did to other n**gas, but not about anything that n**gas did to him.”

Chappelle continued, “If I told my story, it would break your heart… I lost everything and never, ever told on anybody, and this n**ga’s the arbiter of truth. Katt, listen, I f**k with Katt hard, but… DeRay, tell me, what part of the game f**ks up another n**ga’s paper? What part of the game is about telling on another n**ga?”

The comedian questioned why Williams would controversially call out his peers when “all of us are trying to be in a better situation,” he said.
