Netflix Removes 'Chappelle's Show' At Request of Dave Chappelle - Here's Why

Dave Chappelle‘s Comedy Central show, Chappelle’s Show, was removed from Netflix overnight at the request of the comedian. Why? Dave made it clear that Viacom-CBS hasn’t paid him a dime.

“They (ViacomCBS) didn’t have to pay me because I signed the contract,” Dave said in a lengthy video. “But is that right? I found out that these people were streaming my work and they never had to ask me or they never have to tell me. Perfectly legal ‘cause I signed the contract. But is that right? I didn’t think so either. That’s why I like working for Netflix. I like working for Netflix because when all those bad things happened to me, that company didn’t even exist. And when I found out they were streaming ‘Chappelle’s Show,’ I was furious. How could they not– how could they not know? So you know what I did? I called them and I told them that this makes me feel bad. And you want to know what they did? They agreed that they would take it off their platform just so I could feel better.”

You can currently stream Chappelle‘s Show on HBO Max, Comedy Central and CBS All Access. Dave currently has a deal with Netflix for standup specials. Find out who Dave called out in one of his Netflix specials.
