Dave Chappelle recently walked off stage at a festival in Hartford, Connecticut, where he was the headlining act, because he said some “young, white alcoholics” were heckling him from the crowd. He even went as far as to say that he hopes that if North Korea ever bombs the U.S. that they choose Hartford as the target. And while people are all up in arms because a comedian said something controversial, I can’t help but wonder what kind of douchebag would talk shit to a guy who looks like this.
And this is just Dave hanging outside of his hotel in New York City yesterday. I can’t imagine what he looks like up on a stage with a light on him. I’d probably piss my pants a little and throw my wallet at him if he yelled at me.

Comic genius and crazy motherfucker Dave Chappelle had some choice words for the town of Hartford, CT…namely that he hopes it is destroyed by nuclear weapons. It all started when Chappelle played a show there last week as a part of his big comeback tour. A bunch of drunk frat types started heckling him. Chappelle said he wouldn’t go on with the show until they stopped. When they didn’t, he sat out his time quietly and then walked off the stage then reflected a week later…
“I wanted to pull a reverse Kramer and call them all crackers or something crazy like that…I don’t want anything bad to happen to the United States, but if North Korea ever drops a nuclear bomb on this country, I swear to God I hope it lands in Hartford, Connecticut.”
This seems about right to me. Heckling a live stage performer should be punished by death. I don’t care if they’re shitty, or if they’re Chappelle. It’s like blasting off an air-horn behind a hi-rise construction worker to see if you can get him to lose his balance. It’s not cool in any form or fashion. You want attention, get your ass up on the stage and take a shot. Yeah, a nuclear blast seems harsh, but we are talking about Hartford, and based on the prevailing easterly winds, maybe we lose a little Rhode Island too. We’ll be fine.
