Home Celebrity What? Dave Chappelle Asks Netflix to Remove “Chappelle’s Show” Despite Touting it...

Comedian Dave Chappelle has asked Netflix to remove “Chappelle’s Show” from their service, and they’ve obliged. He posted a video to Instagram explaining:

“They (ViacomCBS) didn’t have to pay me because I signed the contract,” Chappelle says in the video. “But is that right? I found out that these people were streaming my work and they never had to ask me or they never have to tell me. Perfectly legal ‘cause I signed the contract. But is that right? I didn’t think so either. That’s why I like working for Netflix. I like working for Netflix because when all those bad things happened to me, that company didn’t even exist. And when I found out they were streaming ‘Chappelle’s Show,’ I was furious. How could they not– how could they not know? So you know what I did? I called them and I told them that this makes me feel bad. And you want to know what they did? They agreed that they would take it off their platform just so I could feel better.”

Nevertheless, Chappelle was happy to report the show’s inclusion when he hosted “Saturday Night Live” recently.
