Dave Chappelle and me, discovering we were fighting the right fight, but for the wrong people:
“You know why my show is good? Because the network officials say you're not smart enough to get what I'm doing, and every day I fight for you. I tell them how smart you are. Turns out, I was wrong. You people are stupid.”
Here's the best part, the part that screams "love" and "respect" and the American Dream:
"Chappelle,…promised that he would not return without changes to the production, such as a better working environment,…Chappelle expressed disdain at the possibility of his material from the unfinished third season being aired, saying that to do so would be "a bully move," and that he would not return to the show if Comedy Central were to air the unfinished material. On July 9, 2006, Comedy Central aired the first episode of Chappelle's Show: The Lost Episodes. An uncensored DVD release of the episodes was made available on July 25."
Sure, why he'd stop working with his "friends" is a mystery,...
