The city of Hartford, Connecticut is not pleased with Dave Chappelle’s recent comments towards the capitol city.
“I wasn’t at the show, so I can’t comment on it specifically. But his recent remarks were immature and inappropriate,” Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra told HipHollywood in a written statement.
“Dave Chappelle should stick to his job, give the fans what they paid for and not disparage the good people of Hartford,” Segarra added.
During Chappelle’s show in Chicago earlier this week, the comedian called the citizens of Hartford “young, white alcoholics” and “evil … suburban torturers.”
Chappelle went on to say that “if North Korea ever drops a nuclear bomb on this country, I swear to God I hope it lands in Hartford, Connecticut.”
Dave stormed off stage during his show in Hartford last week because of the crowds unruly behavior and continuous heckling.
