Dave Chappelle vs. Hartford, Conn.: ‘I Hope North Korea Drops a Bomb on You!’

Note to future tour stops—don’t get on Dave Chappelle’s bad side; not only will he bad talk your entire city, but he’ll also make some pretty dramatic statements!
Following an appearance in Hartford, Conn., where the always-outspoken comedian was heckled, the 40-year-old funnyman shared some strong words about the “evil crowd” who bothered him in the East Coast city.
“You’re so much better than Hartford, I’ll never go back,” Dave told a Chicago audience. “I don’t want anything bad to happen to the United States, but if North Korea ever drops a nuclear bomb on this country, I swear to God I hope it lands in Hartford.”
Dave saved his strong words about the “young, white alcoholics” and “surburban torturers” in Hartford for the Chicago show—not that he wasn’t tempted to call them at when it was happening.
Luckily, he was reminded of another incident—when Seinfeld alum Michael Richards infamously used a racial slur.
“You know, I wanted to pull a ‘reverse Kramer’ and just call them all crackers or something crazy like that,” he joked, but considered the repercussions and decided he couldn’t do that. “I felt bad when Kramer did that.”
