According to Okayplayer, Chappelle decided to renege on a comment he made in November 2016 when he asked the American people to give the president a chance. “And I’m going to give him a chance,” Chappelle said to the Saturday Night Live audience, “and we, the historically disenfranchised, demand that he gives us one too.”

In the present time, the 43-year-old entertainer decided to express his regret for the aforementioned remarks during a stand-up routine at the Robin Hood benefit event in New York City on Monday night (May 15). The organization seeks to combat poverty in the Big Apple.
