Dave Chappelle Absolutely Destroys Jussie Smollett In New Comedy Special
He opens with a joke about Anthony Bourdain.
“Anthony Bourdain had the greatest job that show business ever produced. This n***** flew around the world and ate delicious meals with outstanding people. That man, with that job, hung himself in a luxury suite in France.”
Yes, Dave Chappelle’s latest comedy special is explosive, subversive, the exact opposite of politically correct. He defends Michael Jackson and Louis C.K., rips R. Kelly, blasts social media and the PC movements running rampant in the land today. Liberals — at least some of them — absolutely hate the show (“The comedian doubles down on misogyny and transphobia in both the special and the hidden bonus scene that follows,” Vice wrote in a story headlined “You Can Definitely Skip Dave Chappelle’s New Netflix Special ‘Sticks & Stones”).
But Chappelle is the perfect guy to lay bare the whole Jussie Smollett scandal. Remember that story? A gay actor with the TV show Empire claimed he was beaten by two white men wearing “Make America Great Again” as they berated him with racist and homophobic hate. Smollett’s story fell apart after police said two black men — friends of the actor — were actually the attackers. But a prosecutor in Chicago threw the whole case out, and the mainstream media quickly moved on.
But not Chappelle. He’s been honing a bit on the whole story, and it kills.
Throughout, he calls the actor “Juicy Smool-yay,” saying “he’s a very French, a very famous French actor.”
“One night, he was in Chicago late at night, and was the victim –” Chappelle says before breaking off in laughter, and walking way back on the stage as the audience howls.
“He was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack. You see, Juicy Smool-yay is gay and he is black, not just French. Oh, it was a crazy story. Apparently, when he was walking down the street late at night, two white men came out of the shadows with MAGA hats on and beat him up, tied a rope around his neck, called him all kind of n***** and put some bleach on him and ran off into the night.
“This s*** was, like, international news. And everybody was furious, especially in Hollywood. It was all over everybody’s Twitter feed and Instagram page. ‘Justice for Juicy’ and all this s***. The whole country was up in arms. We was talking about it all the time on the news and for some reason, African Americans, we were like oddly quiet. We were so quiet about this s*** that the gay community started accusing the African American community of being homophobic for not supporting him.
“But what they didn’t understand is that we were supporting him — with our silence because we understood that this n***** was clearly lying.
“None of these details added up at all. He said he was walking down the street in Chicago and white dudes come up to him and say ‘Hey man, aren’t you that f***** n***** from Empire?’ What the f***? Does that sound like how white people talk? I know white people. They don’t talk like that. Are you that f***** n***** from Empire? They would never say that.
“It sounds like something that I would say! If you a racist and homophobic you don’t even know who this n***** is! You can’t watch Empire.
“Black people never feel sorry for the police, but this time we even felt sorry for the police. Can you imagine if you were a police veteran taking this kid’s police report? ‘OK, Mr. Smool-yay, please tell me what happened. All right, you left the house at 2 a.m., it’s minus 16 degrees. All right. You were walking, you were walking. Alllllll right. And and where were you going? Subway? Sandwiches!? That’s when the men approached you. Did you see them? What did they have on? MAGA hats? MAGA hats in Chicago?! Excuse me one second, Mr. Smool-yay. Frank, c’mere for a second: Find out where Kanye West was last night.’
“Such a f****** outrageous story. He said they put a rope around his neck. Has anyone here ever been to Chicago? All right, all right, so you been there. Now tell me, how much rope do you remember seeing? Who the f*** is carrying rope? Like when did you get mugged, n*****, in 1850? Who’s got rope? Who’s got rope!? …
“The Chicago police caught the motherf*****s that actually did it, and, hilariously, they were both Nigerian. Not only were they not white, they were very, very black. They were Nigerian, which is the funniest s***. The whole story is funnier now!”
Then, in an exaggerated Nigerian accent, Chappelle says, “This is MAGA country, you f***** n*****. You f***** n*****!”
The mostly black crowd in the Atlanta theater exploded in laughter and applause.
The show is not for everyone, but Chappelle warns the viewer early on. ‛If you at home watching this s*** on Netflix, ” he says, “remember b****, you clicked on my face.”
