*Dave Chappelle is disappointed that fellow comedian Katt Williams didn’t call out “these white boys” during his now-infamous interview on Club Shay Shay.

According to Deadline, Chappelle performed at comedian DeRay Davis‘ MonDERAYS event at the Hollywood Improv on January 19th, where he slammed Williams for dissing Black comics. 

“What part of the game is this? He ethered n**gas. He didn’t say anything about any of these white boys. None of these white boys function like that,” Chapelle told the audience. 

He added: “Katt is one of the best painters in the game. So why are you drawing ugly pictures of us? Stop. Hurt people hurt people, but I am a hurt person that never hurt people, and he does it all the time.”

Meanwhile, as we’ve reported, Katt’s bombshell interview with Shannon Sharpe on his Club Shay Shay podcast garnered over 46 million views in 10 days across social media and over a million audio downloads. Sharpe’s social media following also significantly increased due to “The Katt Williams Effect.”

During the conversation, Williams slammed several Black comedians and entertainers, such as Steve Harvey, Rickey Smiley Cedric the Entertainer, and Kevin Hart, who he called an “industry plant.”

Days after the interview went viral, Hart’s ex-wife, comedian Torrei Hart, announced that she’s joining Williams on multiple dates for his upcoming The Dark Matter Tour.

“Come see me live with my good friend [Katt Williams] on the Dark Matter Tour,” Torrei, who shares two children with Hart, captioned a photo of herself with Katt in a post on Instagram. 

Torrei will be performing in Charlotte on Jan. 27, Orlando on Feb. 2, and Tampa on Feb. 3., and additional dates will be added soon, she said. 

Several social media users called Williams messy for inviting Torrei on tour with him, especially after he dissed Kevin during his conversation with Sharpe. 

“In fifteen years in Hollywood, no one in Hollywood has a memory of going to a sold-out Kevin Hart show, there being a line for him, [him] ever getting a standing ovation at any comedy club,” Williams told Sharpe, Complex reports.  

During his recent standup set, Chappelle criticized Williams for bringing attention to the wrongdoings of his colleagues while remaining mum about his own misdeeds.

According to Deadline, he said: “’F**k this one, and f**k that one, and f**k this one,’…but, n**ga, I didn’t hear anything that you did wrong. He didn’t do nothin’ wrong? Katt didn’t do nothin’ wrong?… Katt was talking about s**t that n**gas did to other n**gas, but not about anything that n**gas did to him.”

Chappelle continued, “If I told my story, it would break your heart… I lost everything and never, ever told on anybody, and this n**ga’s the arbiter of truth. Katt, listen, I f**k with Katt hard, but… DeRay, tell me, what part of the game f**ks up another n**ga’s paper? What part of the game is about telling on another n**ga?”

Interesting. Very interesting. What do you make of Chappelle’s comments about Katt Williams?
