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."

Racist. But who be the first one to pull a race card if they didn't get their way? Shame shame. Glad MLK didn't see what happened to his dream.

The problem is that there are no good words that insult the Caucasian race. Cracker, honky, snowflake, white boy, nothing. You can't even hurt our feelings with them. But then. There's the Dreaded N Word. So foul that I can't even type it out.

Black people, work on a new word.

my guess is michael richards was forced to self suicide his 'acting' and comedy career with, not by, this. clearly, he is not a racist, but was merely trying to use the stage in this inevitable agent designated career move to tell you who is running the show behind the scenes, just that when you don't know how the show business is played, you only "see" what you want to "see" and only "hear" what you want to hear, because that is how it works best: aka "Big Hollywood jUmangi Boss Noses', when all the consumers are dumb and driven alone by their infantile and immature, ignorant senses and pleasures or desires.

It's comedic as soon as TMZ puts up a article concerning "race" everyone loses there mind. Race is a made up concept to keep the masses blinded and keep our concentration away from real issues in the world.
