Dave Chappelle regrets telling people to give Trump a chance


During a 10-minute monologue on "Saturday Night Live" after Trump's election, famed comedian Dave Chappelle did something that surprised many. He told people to give President Trump a chance.

Well, he's singing a different tune these days.

During the Robin Hood NYC benefit on Tuesday, Chappelle said, "I was the first guy on TV to say 'Give Trump a chance.' I f****d up. Sorry," the New York Daily News reported.  

The SNL monologue was Chappelle's first major televised appearance since 2006. 

Chappelle spoke on a variety of topics, including Harambe, the riots in Portland, and most famously, the relationship between the president-elect and minority populations in the U.S.

“I'm gonna wish Donald Trump luck, and I'm going to give him a chance, and we the historically disenfranchised demand that he give us one too,” Chappelle said.
