Late last year Dave Chappelle took to SNL for his first ever hosting job on the series. His opening monologue came after the United States went on to elect Donald Trump as it’s 45th president. In his monologue Chappelle took a more noble approach by telling viewers that they should give Donald a chance. Since then it appears even that message has changed for Chappelle. He recently took to the stage for a charity event and said “Sorry” about that message.
Dave Chappelle has offered an apology for comments he made during his opening monologue on Saturday Night Live in November. Chappelle, while speaking to attendees at a benefit event for the Robin Hood non-profit Monday, said he “fucked up” when he told viewers of the much-discussed SNL episode to give the former Apprentice host who’s currently in the White House a chance. “I was the first guy on TV to say ‘Give Trump a chance,'” Chappelle said at the benefit dinner in New York Tuesday, according to MSNBC anchor Willie Geist. “I fucked up. Sorry.”
