Dave Chappelle

RIPPED BY HARTFORD MAYOR

'Quit Whining'

9/5/2013 11:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0905_dave_chappelle_mayor_getty
The mayor of Hartford, Connecticut is firing back at Dave Chappelle -- telling the comic to QUIT BITCHING about his city ... and get on with his life.

"Dave Chappelle needs to quit whining, do his job and try some yoga," Mayor Pedro Segarra tweeted this morning.

The Mayor is clearly referring to Chappelle's anti-Hartford rant ... when he called for North Korea to hit the Connecticut city with a nuclear strike after the "young, white alcoholic" crowd heckled him during a show last week.

"His recent remarks were immature and inappropriate," Segarra tells TMZ ... adding, "[He] should stick to his job, give the fans what they paid for and not disparage the good people of Hartford."

Snap.

I agree with most of the commenters re Chappelle and that THERE IS a double standard, hypocrisy and contradiction in racism. Why do we continue labeling people by race, creed, sexual orientation, gender, mental/physical status etc., etc. It’s like when we describe or see an obvious gay couple, why do we have to say “gay couple” and not just couple? Normally, whenever people see a man/female couple or describe a” typical” male/female couple, do we say “heterosexual couple” emphasizing on the heterosexual? Such as Oh look at that cute, heterosexual couple!” Hell, no. We say, “Look how cute … how sweet . . . hope we grow up to be together like them!” Right, right?! Why do we have to use unnecessary nouns in our language? Why do we continue behaving as if we live in a divided country – is it because we do? Look, why is it okay for traditionally, typical artists or musicians in the rap music genre to use the blatantly offensive terms and nouns such as “n**gers, b**ches etc., etc.” but if a white male or female used the N-word there would be outrage with Rev. Jackson and the likes appearing on CNN or other 24/7 news channels proclaiming racism and outrage, organizing protests and other nonsense. I am just tired of all the hypocrisy in our country. The reason Oprah has had a long-term argument with Jay Z is over the use of the N-word because it was the last word a lot, I mean A LOT, of people of color heard as they were being murdered by hanging or lynching for their skin color. So unless it is okay for all races to use terms/words interchangeably than it’s NOT okay to use the word, period. Chappelle you owe Hartford an apology and a FREE comedy concert.

ut oh. all hell is going to break loose. a white comedian called a crowd of people 'young, black alcoholics'. protests will happen. Sharpton will march. Sharpton will call for the comedian never to work again. blacks will give out the comedians home phone number and address. riots will happen. innocent whites will get sucker punched. this is going to get ugly. OH WAIT. it is a black comedian only wishing death on a city full of people after calling them 'white alcoholics'. The world wont even pay attention to this. this wont make anything but a 15 second local news story. racism only works one way... against whites. so sad.

Since he's a comedian, and solely based on the reactions of the Chicago crowds he was saying that anti-Hartford rant to, it is quite obvious he was doing his job, Segarra, to great success too.

Making fun of Hartford will get you easy laugh, it seems.

Read what really happened during his show:

Dave Challelle Didn't Melt Down
Lesli-Ann Lewis attended the now-infamous Connecticut show and says the comedian is not the one who's got a problem

all about the money    

He's a has been. Whatever demons made him walk away from a very lucrative career cost him any future he might have had. I won't even go see him now when he starts his tour of Indian Casinos and back water comedy clubs.

Classic Black & White double standard here. Replace him with a white comedian saying the same **** but change the "white alcoholics" to Black Alcoholics..it would have been front page news..there would be protest's..the white comedian would be dropped by all his sponsors...
