Dave Chappelle Roasts Kanye West And Kyrie Irving In Hilarious SNL Monologue

Dave Chappelle Destroys Kanye West And Kyrie Irving In SNL Monologue


Continuing a tradition that first began back in 2016 following the election of former President Donald Trump, legendary stand-up comedian Dave Chappelle — who is certainly no stranger to controversy himself — was tasked with hosting the first episode of Saturday Night Live following a major election.

Chappelle, who hosted SNL following the elections in 2020 and 2016, used his 15-minute-long monologue to touch on a variety of topics, including the recent antisemitism displayed by fashion designer Kanye West and flat-Earth-truther Kyrie Irving.

“I denounce antisemitism in all its forms, and I stand with my friends in the Jewish community,” Chappelle began, reading from a prepared statement. “And that, Kanye, is how you buy yourself some time… 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.’”

“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,” Chappelle said later on

Chappelle’s comments about West (who he has had a personal relationship with in the past) and Irving come after the pair both spent recent weeks and months engaging in antisemitic rhetoric.

As a result of their actions, Kanye has been dropped by the likes of Gap and Adidas — his net worth has reportedly also dropped from over $1 billion to about $400 million — while Kyrie Irving is currently suspended from the Brooklyn Nets and must complete a litany of tasks to display that he’s learned from this experience before he can begin playing again.

In addition to the opening monologue, Chappelle also appeared in a couple of sketches, which you can find on SNL‘s YouTube channel.
