Dave Chappelle has entered the conversation and shared his thoughts on Katt Williams’ interview with Shannon Sharpe on “Club Shay Shay.” Williams took jabs at a number of Black comedians, and Chappelle was not a fan of the insults.


On Jan. 19, Chappelle was on stage at MonDERAYS at the Hollywood Improv. Though the comedian is known for having a n0-phone policy during his sets, people still found a way to record what he said about Williams.


“What part of the game is this? He only ethered n—–. He didn’t say anything about any of these White boys,” Chappelle said. “None of these White boys function like that. Katt is one of the best painters in the game. So why are you drawing ugly pictures of us? Stop.”

“Hurt people hurt people, but I am a hurt person that never hurt people, and he does it all the time: ‘F— this one, and f— that one, and f— this one,’ ” Chappelle said as he impersonated Williams. “But, n—-, I didn’t hear anything that you did wrong. He didn’t do nothing wrong? Katt didn’t do nothing wrong? Katt was talking about s— that n—– did to other n—–, but not about anything that n—– did to him.”


Chappelle continued and questioned why Williams would call out his peers when they were all trying to be in a better situation.

“If I told my story, it would break your heart,” Chappelle said. “I lost everything and never, ever told on anybody, and this n—— the arbiter of truth. Katt, listen, I f— with Katt hard, but … DeRay, tell me, what part of the game f—- up another n—— paper? What part of the game is about telling on another n—-?”

  1. Right…Facts, Dave! Folks were so busy being entertained by the gossip. I found nothing he said or did to be of true value! I like Katt as a comedian but as a person, I give him serious side eye. If anyone is clout chasing it’s him. And if we’re being honest he was disrespectful to Shannon. Ion like it, ion like it not one bit!

    1. It was not out of the blue. Katy Williams is a strategic person. There is a method to his madness! He will sell out all his shows!

      1. Katt Williams plays chess not checkers. You are a thousand percent correct in saying there was a method to his madness as his comedy tour is selling out. Well played Katt well played.

    2. Out of the blue? Katt was responding to what they had said when they were on Shannon’s show so he was correcting the record.

  2. When I said this under one oof the post and named a couple of white comedians wore dresses in a movie why he didn’t call them out

  3. OMG IT IS THE BLACK COMEDIANS THAT STOLE FROM HIM. DAVE YOU BEEN A SELLOUT. THATS WHY THEY ALMOST DROVE YOU CRAZY. WHY ARE YOU BETTER THAN KATT IF YOU FELT THAT WAY THEN CALL HIM. HE SAID NOTHING BAS OF YOU. GO TO THE EVIDENCE THE BLACK SO CALL COMEDIANS STOPE HIS MARERIAL THEN TRUED TO DISPARAGE HIM BY SAYING HE WAS ON DRUGS. UNLIKE YOU DAVE WE KNOW YOUR THE RESUDENT ALCHOLIC ,

  4. Katt needs to quit. It is dead on the water. You have sold out crowds but I have never been a Katt Williams fan and now I never will be. You had a problem with the Kings of Comedy talk to them. No you needed an audience Club Shay, Shay.

  5. Dave is dead wrong !! where was your loyalty and your solidarity when they was treating Katt Williams like crap? just because you didn’t say anything about what you saw doesn’t make you anymore better than Katt it just means you don’t have no courage to speak up . you ran all the way to the motherland to find out where Hollywood was aiming to do to you you’re wrong because Kat did speak on a white comedian named Gary, he that doesn’t have to make Hollywood look bad or the character of the integrity look bad these people already look bad all by themselves . you need to wake up, especially with issues when it pertains to Black people and Kat ain’t never had to start no controversy to sell no tickets, because if that was the case he wouldn’t have been getting arrested for speaking the truth and still selling out concerts. He’s the only comedian, taking other comedians, black comedians on the road and paying them large cash I never seen you do that. Where is your black comedian TOUR ?? pour yourself another drink Dave. You are just as guilty as the ninjas sitting beside each other on the Epstein island. You just as bad as Oprah hanging out and being friends with Harvey Weinstein. Oh, I forgot you excuse bad behavior, especially if it means somebody’s trying to feed their family. It’s called integrity. Cat said it’s surprising that you have such an allegiance to losers. .
