Dave Chappelle has a lot of answering to do after last night's explicit Saturday Night Live monologue...
The usually-beloved comedian hosted SNL's first episode following the election last night...
via: InstagramBut his monologue was simply teeming with explicit barbs directed at the outgoing President Trump.
Now, Chappelle is no stranger to a bit of controversy.
via: SNLThe comedian made his debut as SNL's host in the 2016 Election Night sketch, wherein he launched a savage and explicit attack against America's newly elected President Trump.
Chappelle didn't hold back...
via: SNLBut hey, that's his style, isn't it? As per the Washington Post, Chappelle said in his 2016 monologue:
"But America’s done it. We’ve actually elected an Internet troll as our president. The whites were furious. I’ve never seen anything like it. I haven’t seen whites this mad since the O.J. verdict. White people screaming on both sides, 'Aahhh!'"
He wasn't afraid to use many current events as his bait...
via: YouTubeSuch as the tragic 2016 mass shootings. "If that [Pulse nightclub shooting] is what happened, then ISIS is scarier than I thought because they have very deep cover operatives. 'Look out I’m going out deep for this one, I might have to get a Grindr account, and j— a few guys off, to throw them off the trail.'"
He also joked about Trump's history with sexism and racism...
via: YouTubeBut, drawing his monologue to a close by wishing the soon-to-be president good luck in his new role, his comments were taken with a pinch of salt and he moved on from the evening relatively unscathed.
But now, fast forward 4 years, Chappelle is back...
via: SNLAnd he is full of vengeance.
As stated earlier, the comedian hosted this year's post-election SNL...
via: YouTubeAnd, in true Chappelle fashion, he didn't hold back with making fun of the country's current affairs.
But, when poking fun at Trump's coronavirus diagnosis...
via: YouTubeHe struck a nerve with a lot of people.
Has he finally gone too far?
