‘Jesus Christ, I’m not a Trump supporter’: Dave Chappelle slams conservative outlet’s bogus claims
Comedian Dave Chappelle has a message for the world: No, he is not supporting Donald Trump. Actually, to be extra clear, “Hell no,” Chappelle said, according to TMZ.
TMZ referred to an article from the Observer that was published over the weekend in which the outlet claims Chappelle defended Trump at a gig in New York and “[slammed] the Democratic presidential nominee.”
The TMZ reporter approached Chappelle in the street and said after his show over the weekend, “Everyone’s surprised ’cause everyone’s saying you’re a Trump supporter.”
Chappelle looked both stunned and irritated by the statement. “Jesus Christ, I’m not a Trump supporter,” he responded. TMZ asked again, “You’re not a Trump supporter?”
“Unequivocally no,” he said. “Hell no. Just everybody vote, for whoever you want to vote for. But that’s not what I’m doing.”
Clarifying the situation just one more time, TMZ asked, “So everyone just took it weirdly?”
“It was from the Observer,” Chappelle responded with a roll of the eyes. “Come and see my shows for yourself, and not listen to conservative paper reviews.”
