Hartford Mayor To Dave Chappelle: Stop Whining, Try Some Yoga

in YD News

Maybe all comedian Dave Chappelle needs is some yoga? That’s what Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra thinks, or at least that’s what he tweeted Thursday morning, a week after Chappelle was heckled so bad during a performance in the fine CT town he eventually walked off stage after just 25 minutes (his contracted minimum). Chappelle was in Hartford co-headling Funny or Die’s Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival, but the rowdiness of the audience who just couldn’t pipe down (ie. “I’m Rick James, bitch!” on repeat) proved to surpass his heckle-meter and he stopped less than halfway through his set.

In response to all the hubbub, Hartford Mayor Segarra decided to make a public suggestion.

 

Dave Chappelle, of course, had a few choice words for his ‘young, white alcoholic’ hecklers of Hartford. He told a (much tamer) Chicago audience almost a week after the incident:

“I wouldn’t go back to Hartford for f—–g gas.”

“I don’t want anything bad to happen to the United States,” Chappelle continued, “but if North Korea ever drops a nuclear bomb on this country, I swear to God I hope it lands in Hartford, Connecticut, on stage in that f—– arena.”

Ouch! Comedian scorned.

You know, part of us wishes Chappelle had popped into a few yoga poses on stage. Pratyahara, bitches.

    Why would DC do a show in Hartford CT?? I mean you might as well to the middle of an aryan nation! I think DC is hilarious- one of my favorite comedians. WTF does this mayor know about yoga??? I would be pretty pissed off- but that is the bummer- several people upset/angry-

  • Yikes! Love Dave Chappelle, and don’t blame him for walking off in CT, since the crowd wouldn’t shut the hell up, but don’t agree with his comments afterward!
