During the ‘Saturday Night Live’ monologue, Dave Chappelle spoke on Kanye West and Kyrie Irving. Everyone got opinions on Kanye and Irving’s anti-semitic rants.
According to Vlad;
Dave Chappelle recently came back to ’Saturday Night Live’ to host once again. During his monologue, Chappelle spoke about Kanye West and Kyrie Irving, cracking jokes while running through what brought controversy to both figures these past few weeks.
One of the comments made by Chappelle in relation to both Ye and Irving found him saying, “I learned that there are two words in the English language that you should never say together in sequence. And those words are ‘the’ and ‘Jews.’”
Another part of the monologue found Chappelle speaking about Hollywood, saying, “It’s a lot of Jews. Like, a lot. But that doesn’t mean anything. There’s a lot of Black people in Ferguson, Mo. That doesn’t mean they run the place.”
It is tough being a comedian in 2022. You can’t tell jokes without people getting into their feelings.
Dave Chappelle’s comments about the Jewish community during his “Saturday Night Live” monologue are being slammed as antisemitic.
Anti-Defamation League chief executive officer Jonathan Greenblatt took to Twitter on Sunday to criticize the comedian and the NBC late night show.
“We shouldn’t expect @DaveChappelle to serve as society’s moral compass, but disturbing to see @nbcsnl not just normalize but popularize #antisemitism,” Greenblatt tweeted. “Why are Jewish sensitivities denied or diminished at almost every turn? Why does our trauma trigger applause?”
The controversial comic hosted the show and addressed the firestorm around Kanye West, who has legally changed his name to “Ye,” following his remarks about Jewish people.
Chappelle began the show by reading a statement which said “I denounce antisemitism in all its forms and I stand with my friends in the Jewish community.”
“And that, Kanye, is how you buy yourself some time,” Chappelle joked.
He went on to say that Ye had broken “the show business rules” which are “the rules of perception.”
“If they’re Black, then it’s a gang. If they’re Italian, it’s a mob,” Chappelle said. “But if they’re Jewish, it’s a coincidence and you should never speak about it.”
Chappelle went on to talk about the abundance of Jewish people in Hollywood.
“But that doesn’t mean anything,” he said. “There’s a lot of Black people in Ferguson, Missouri. Doesn’t mean they run the place.”
Chappelle said he could see “if you had some kind of issue, you might go out to Hollywood and start connecting some kind of lines and you could maybe adopt the illusion that Jews run show business.”
“It’s not a crazy thing to think,” he said. “But it’s a crazy thing to say out loud.”
