A spokesperson for the Seminoles tells TMZ -- "The Tribe appreciates and accepts his apology and welcomes him back anytime."

Chappelle apologized for his "wild night" -- in which he blew off his act and checked his text messages instead of telling jokes.

He used to be funny. He got rich, he got weird, now he's got nothing to offer. He should take his butt back to his farm in Ohio and shut the door.

Rude and disrepectful to a paying public. Why did he even book the gig if he couldn't be bothered?

To me Dave Chappelle is hilarious, especially when he made fun of artists like Rick James and Prince. His stand ups use to be awesome, I remember seeing something on cable and he was doing a skit of a drugdealer baby! Only Chappelle can make you envision such a story lol ...
Maybe he has to get comfortable again with the limelight or he is fighting personal demons, who knows ...

I was there. They OWE HIM AN APOLOGY. Chappelle was irked at all the people trying to record him on their cell phones and the hecklers. So, guess who were some of the people doing both? The ownership of the Casino he was performing at... the Seminole Indians.

I was at this charity and I don't think he got paid, at least I didn't pay for his show I didnt even know he was performing til the day before. I felt so bad for him there were SO many hecklers who wouldn't stop yelling at him. Really trashy audience, I heard one guy screamed "yo! can you pay my bills?" I can't imagine how anyone can ignore that much heckling since it was a comedy show, he should be the only one talking. I think he handled it ok, given the situation. I think the hecklers were casino owners family because most of them were sitting in front row. I'm disappointed, hope to see funny Dave again soon.

It's finally hitting Chappelle that he was a complete IDIOT for passing up that 50 mil. Now he's back on the circuit getting heckled.
He belongs in the Hollywood Hall of Shame along with Juiliana Marguiles and that carrot top from CSI.
