Katt Williams on Dave Chappelle: “But Dave Chappelle was decapitated in front of us. And until we deal that. Until we deal with the fact that a devout Muslim was accused of being a crackhead. And until we establish the fact that they said he went to Africa to smoke cocaine when we know they don’t have running water and food over there. When they don’t have paved roads over there. You saying he flew past Chicago and Miami and LA and New York and Detroit, you saying he went past Cleveland and Fort Pierce, Florida, and he went past Okeechobee and Oakland, you saying he went all the way to another country where they not eating? You talking about somebody who has a wife and children, five children, and lives on a farm, he doesn’t live here in Hollywood. You saying you convince people that person was an insane crackhead? And he hasn’t been on movies and TV for eight years is that correct? Ok then don’t tell me about what you wanna tell me, I just watched you decapitate him in front of me… Then when he made 500 million dollars, even though his contract said he was supposed to get half of it, they said he made too much for the contract to be valid, so we’ll offer you 10% of what you made. You mean he made 500 million and they offered him 50? Yes. And he said, “what do you think my fans are gonna say? When they find out you offered me 10% of what I made you.” And they said, “your fans will believe that you’re a crazy crackhead by the time you get home. And my nigga got on a flight in LA and by the time he got to Ohio it was so. And eight years later he hasn’t been in a movie or television and is just now trying to do his real comeback in Radio City Music Hall. It’s bees like that sometimes.”
I lost my girlfriend and my job on the same weekend.
So my girlfriend and I just broke up. It’s for totally legit reasons and I don’t think either of us are mad at the other. She told me she couldn’t trust me anymore and thought that we weren’t reaching a level. I understand all of this but i’m obviously still hurt. I wouldn’t want her to hold back on breaking up because of recent events, but this is hitting me pretty hard.
I have no job, no girlfriend, live with my parents, wasn’t planning on going back to school. I got nothing right now except a room full of comics, movies, and video games that’s tethering me down from doing any real work. I’m seriously listening to Transatlantacism right now. What the fuck am I doing. I’m living like i’m 17 and don’t have anything to worry about. Shouldn’t I have everything to worry about? What the fuck.
I don’t know if I need to go back into therapy or something to figure this out, but I gotta fucking do something.
So to everyone who’s reading this, lets hang out. Please help me through this, because i’m clearly not good at doing it myself.
