Dave Chappelle defends Kanye West’s anti-Semitism during ‘SNL’ monologue

Dave Chappelle used his opening monologue on Saturday Night Live to address anti-Semitic comments made by Kanye West in recent weeks.

Last month, West was banned from Twitter and Instagram after publishing a series of anti-Semitic messages. He also said that he did not believe in the term anti-Semitism and that he was “envious” of Jewish culture.

Several anti-fascist groups spoke out against the comments, and many artists, celebrities and politicians publicly criticized West for his comments, including Jack Antonoff, John Legend, David Schwimmer, New York Partner Alexandria Ocasio- Cortez, and former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin. Netanyahu.

Yesterday (November 12) Dave Chappelle began his Saturday Night Live opening monologue by reading a statement on a piece of paper. “I condemn all forms of anti-Semitism, and I stand in solidarity with my friends in the Jewish community,” he said. “And that, Kanye, is how you buy time.”

“I’ve probably been at this for 35 years, and I learned early in my career that there are two words in the English language that you shouldn’t say together in order, and they are: The Jews,” he said. . “I’ve never heard of anyone doing well after saying that.”

Chappelle previously said that when West was in trouble, he would show up right away. “But this time, it was like ‘I’m going to see what happens first.’ He then went on to discuss West’s recent appearance on the Drink Champs video podcast.

“This time, he was angry about something. He said, ‘I can say anti-Semitic things and Adidas can’t let me down.’ Adidas fell for him immediately. Ironically, Adidas was founded by the Nazis and they resented them. I guess. student teacher outclassed.” Chappelle said.

He continued: “It’s a big deal, but it broke the rules of the show business attitude. If they’re black, it’s a gang. If they’re Italian, it’s mafia. If they’re Jewish, it’s a coincidence, and it’s not you should never talk about it.”.

“I saw a news pundit yelling about Kanye, she said ‘mental health is no excuse for that kind of language’. Yeah, yeah. You can kill someone if you’re mentally ill,” Chappelle said. “I don’t think Kanye is crazy, I think maybe he’s not right. But I’ve been to Hollywood, this is what I saw… there’s a lot of Jews. But that doesn’t mean anything there are a lot of black people in Ferguson, Missouri, but that doesn’t mean they’re running the place.”

“I can see if you had some kind of problem, you could go to Hollywood and you could start connecting some lines and maybe you could accept the illusion that Jews are running show business,” Chappelle said. “It’s not crazy to think, but it’s crazy to say it out loud in a climate like this.”

After discussing how West lost his billionaire status, Chappelle said: “It shouldn’t be so scary to talk about anything. It’s making my job really hard, to be honest. Hopefully I know they don’t take anything from me, whoever they are.”

Saturday Night Live came under fire for casting Chappelle after the comedian made a series of seemingly transphobic comments during his Netflix special last year.

Earlier this year, a Minnesota local canceled one of his regular gigs due to a setback. Chappelle addressed the criticism during a speech at the Duke Ellington School of the Arts in Washington DC, posted on Netflix, in which he claimed that those who criticize his views do not take his “artistic nuance” into account.

Meanwhile, West returned to social media earlier month and promised a 30-day cleanse of sex, alcohol and porn.
