Her “black ass was nowhere near the Holocaust”

Comedian Dave Chappelle opened as a host on saturday night live featuring a sympathetic monologue with Kyrie Irving and Kanye West amid their anti-Semitism controversies.

About four minutes into his set, Chappelle waded through the mess NBA star Kyrie Irving found himself in last week when he was suspended for posting a social media link to a qualified movie. of anti-Semite.

“Kanye got into so much trouble Kyrie got into trouble,” Chappelle said when addressing the subject.

“Kyrie Irving posted a link to a movie he had seen on Amazon,” Chappelle explained. “No caption on the post or anything like that, but apparently this movie had, I don’t know, anti-Semitic tropes or something. It was a weird title like ‘Hebrew to Negro’ or something. something like that.”

The film is based on the unproven “Black Hebrew Israelite” conspiracy theory that Black Americans are the true descendants of the Israelites in the Bible, and today’s Israelis and American Jews have stolen their ethnic identity.

Chappelle went on to say, “And the NBA told him he should apologize and he was late in apologizing. And the list of demands to get back in their good graces just keeps getting longer and longer and that’s there, you know, I draw the line.

“I know Jewish people have been through terrible things all over the world, but you can’t blame black Americans. You can not. Do you know what I mean?” he said.

“Kyrie Irving’s black ass was a far cry from the Holocaust. In fact, it’s not even certain that it exists,” Chappelle joked.

Chappelle has been criticized for his transgender jokes and when it was announced he was set to host the weekend comedy show, it was reported that several writers and cast members were boycotting the show. episode and refused to participate in its production.

But Chappelle’s team disputed that claim.

“We have seen nothing to substantiate media reports of a writer’s boycott. In fact, the writers delivered over 40 sketches for Dave’s consideration and collaboration. Much like Dave’s last SNL appearances, you won’t want to miss it! a rep for Chappelle told CNN.

Chappelle also joked that low-income white people like Trump because he’s an “honest liar” and added that during the first debates with Hillary in 2016, Trump admitted the system was rigged because he was using! White people, Chappelle said, have never seen anyone admit it like that, and he understands why so many people love Trump.
