Netflix really did something when the streaming platform added “Chappelle’s Show” to its library, but things quickly changed when Dave Chappelle asked his fans to boycott the show about three months ago. Dave revealed that he was not being paid for his show or his name, and demanded that Netflix pull the show down.
Well, it looks like y’all definitely had Dave’s back because he has just announced that his show will be back on Netflix on Friday, and revealed that Comedy Central gave him his coins! In a 10-minute performance posted to Instagram, Dave thanked all of his fans for supporting him.
“I never asked Comedy Central for anything,” he said. “If you remember I said ‘I’m going to my real boss’ and I came to you because I know where my power lies. I asked you to stop watching the show and thank God almighty for you, you did.”
Chappelle went on to say that Comedy Central reached out to him to make things right.
“You made that show worthless because without your eyes, it’s nothing. And when you stopped watching it they called me. And I got my name back. And I got my license back, and I got my show back, and they paid me millions of dollars. Thank you very much,” he said.
If y’all remember, Dave Chappelle put out a similar performance asking fans to boycott the show because ViacomCBS refused to pay him for licensing the show to streaming platforms like Netflix. Take a look at his performance below:
