Dave Chappelle’s ‘SNL’ Opening Monologue Addresses Kanye West
Dave Chappelle’s opening monologue on Saturday Night Live addressed Donald Trump, the midterm elections, and Kanye “Ye” West’s antisemitic rants. The comedian began by reciting a statement he said he wrote. “I reject antisemitism in all of its manifestations.”
He continued, “And that, Kanye, is how you buy yourself some time and I stand with my friends in the Jewish community.”
Chappelle spent much of his set bashing West, accusing him of feeling he was untouchable until Adidas, among other companies, sacked him due to a run of antisemitic comments on social media.
He added that, ironically, Nazis established Adidas, and that even they were outraged. Chappelle also discussed Kyrie Irving, who was recently suspended from the Brooklyn Nets for at least five games after sharing a link to the anti-Semitic documentary Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America.
