Netflix removes 'Chappelle's Show' as Dave Chappelle urges viewers not to watch show
Nov 25, 2020 1 min, 16 secs

Comedian Dave Chappelle on Tuesday posted a video on Instagram asking his fans not to stream episodes of his Comedy Central show until he gets more money for them.

"I'm begging you, if you ever liked me, if you ever think there was anything worthwhile about me, I'm begging you, please don't watch that show," Chappelle said.

The majority of the nearly 19-minutes-long clip is devoted to Chappelle claiming that due to the contract he signed before he abruptly quit "Chappelle's Show," he doesn't get any additional money for the work he did — even as big media companies continue to profit from his work.

And it wasn't good money and it wasn't good circumstances but, 'what else am I gonna do?' I said.".

After two successful seasons, Chappelle signed an extension with Comedy Central worth $50 million.

Comedy Central then cobbled together a shortened third season using previously unreleased sketches.

"People think I made a lot of money from 'Chappelle's Show.' When I left that show, I never got paid.

He says he pitched "Chappelle's Show" to HBO and they rejected it before he went to Comedy Central.

The clip ends with Chappelle directly criticizing ViacomCBS, which owns Comedy Central, for what he says was an unfair deal

He conceded it's possible that current executives could be unaware of the situation, as it happened over a decade ago, and encouraged them to go to the accounting department to see how much money "Chappelle's Show" made compared to how much he was paid
