Dave Chappelle Apologizes For Telling Viewers To Give Donald Trump A Chance

"I f**ked up."

Dave Chappelle has one big regret about his appearance on “Saturday Night Live” last November ― and it wasn’t a punchline.

Just days after Donald Trump was elected president, Chappelle went the magnanimous route during his monologue and asked viewers to give the new leader a chance.

But that was then.

On Monday, the comedian expressed regret for his “SNL” remarks at a charity event in New York City.

“I was the first guy on TV to say ‘Give Trump a chance.’ I f―ked up. Sorry,” he said at the Robin Hood Foundation benefit, according to MSNBC’s Willie Geist.

Rewind to Nov. 12, when Chappelle said on “SNL”:

“I’m wishing Donald Trump luck, and I’m going to give him a chance, and we the historically disenfranchised demand that he give us one too.”

Man, that seems like a long time ago.
