Dave Chappelle

Hartford Crowd Was Evil, White

I Wanted to Pull a 'Reverse Kramer'

9/4/2013 5:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0904_dave_chappelle_article_tmzDave Chappelle is lashing out about the people who heckled him in Hartford, CT last week ... calling the crowd a bunch of "young, white alcoholics" and saying he wanted to pull a "reverse Kramer."

Chappelle took the stage at a show in Chicago last night ... and immediately went off on Hartford -- where he engaged in a nasty stand-off with the crowd after several loudmouthed fans heckled him during his set.

"I don't want anything bad to happen to the United States," Chappelle said ... "but if North Korea ever drops a nuclear bomb on this country, I swear to God I hope it lands in Hartford, Connecticut."



Chappelle then called the crowd "evil" ... and described them as a bunch of "young, white alcoholics."

"I wanted to pull a reverse Kramer and call them all crackers or something crazy like that."

Chappelle was obviously referring to the TMZ footage of Michael Richards during his insane N-bomb tirade at the Laugh Factory back in 2006.

In the end, Dave says the crowd in Hartford was lucky to see him "freak out" that night -- explaining, "That s**t's like being at a f**king tiger show the night Sigfried and Roy got their throats bit out by the tiger ... you don't go to see somebody be safe."

It shows that Dave knows nothing about Geography it is more likely a Nuclear weapon fired from North Korea will Hit Hawaii if anything, and if it could hit the Main Land United States it would Hit California, Other than that there is no chance that North Korea has a Missile that can hit Hartford.

Weird level of bigotry on TMZ today.
Between this story, the Aaryn Gries one, and the comments left by dumbasses in the iCarly thread (in a three stories, actually), this site really gave all imaginable levels of race bating and hatred.

This is where you wanna go with your product, Levin?

Hey Dave, see all those millions you got in the bank ? WHITE PEOPLE gave that to you for acting like a n!ggger on TV for three years. You ran to Africa because you finally realized you were a total sell out and hurting your own race, but you kept the money, didn't you ? Now you want to come back but you still hate the white people who buy the tickets. Quit now before you totally lose your mind.
