After he previously asked fans to boycott the show on Netflix, because the streaming service didn’t follow due process; Dave Chappell finally gives his blessing for the Chappell’s show to stream on Netflix.
This comes after Chappell revealed that Comedy Central paid him millions for the show. Recall that Chappell’s show used to be a high ranking show on Comedy Central.
Taking to Instagram on Thursday, the stand-up comic shared a 10-minute clip that saw him discussing the matter.
He began: ‘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.’
Back in November, Dave claimed that he ‘never got paid’ when he left Chappelle’s Show, which ran on Comedy Central from 2003 to 2006.
‘People think I made a lot of money from Chappelle’s Show,’ he said in the video.
He requested for fans to stop watching because he was allegedly being unable to receive royalties for the show based on a contract he signed with Comedy Central and its parent company, ViacomCBS.
