Chapelle’s Show is returning to Netflix after being taken down at the request of Dave Chappelle in November 2020. Chappelle revealed in an 18-minute video titled “Unforgiven” that he didn’t get royalties from his hit show after he left, per his contract. Chappelle told viewers, “If you are streaming that show, you’re fencing stolen goods. They stole that from me. They just took it. This f**king industry is a monster.”
Chappelle uploaded another clip to his Instagram on Thursday (February 11), where he thanked fans for boycotting the show. He also revealed that he was able to get ownership of the show back, along with licensing, and Dave revealed he was paid millions.
“I asked you to stop watching the show and thank God almighty for you, you did. You made that show worthless because without your eyes it’s nothing. And when you stopped watching it, they called me. And I got my name back and I got my license back and I got my show back and they paid me millions of dollars. Thank you very much.”
