'Ripped his mask off' Dave Chappelle exposes 'ugly' hidden side of Will Smith after slap
USA, Chappelle said that just moments before he was about to win the Best Actor award for his role in the film King Richard, he acted “like he was back in Philadelphia”.Chappelle, who is known for his satirical comedy sketches added: “Will did the impression of a perfect person for 30 years, and he ripped his mask off and showed us he was as ugly as the rest of us.“Whatever the consequences are… I hope he doesn’t put his mask back on again and lets his real face breathe.“I see myself in both men,” Chappelle added.Chris also spoke openly about the incident, dedicating a small portion of his comedy set to the event. It was during this part of the show that the funnyman said: “F*** your hostage video,” referring to the actor’s viral YouTube and Instagram apology video.Having posted the video back in July, these comments are the first time that Chris has aired his opinion on the video.The three-time Grammy award winning comic and actor also referred to Will as “Suge Smith” in reference to the former Death Row Records music executive Suge Knight, who is currently serving a 28-year jail sentence for voluntary manslaughter.Shortly after, the star swiftly moved on to say that he’d been back at work the following day after the slap, stressing that he was not a victim, before discussing an array of topics from Trump’s election to the dating habits of the Kardashian family.Similarly to Chris, Dave has also been attacked on stage, when performing back in Los Angeles back in May.
