Updated On 01 Jan, 2018 Published On

Dave Chappelle tackles Hollywood’s sexual harassment allegations in his new Netflix stand-up, targeting one of the five women who accused Louis C.K. of sexual assault and misconduct.

He said in his Dave Chappelle: The Bird Revelation special which was released on New Year’s Eve.

I shouldn’t say this, but f**k it, [C.K.’s] allegations were the only one that made me laugh,

He further said, 

It’s terrible, I know it’s terrible. I’m sorry ladies … At the same time, you know what I mean, Jesus Christ, I don’t know, they took everything from Louis, it might be disproportionate, I can’t tell, I can’t tell, this is like where it’s hard to be a man.

44-year-old Dave went on to address Louis’ incident with writer Abby Schachner, where he masturbated while on the phone with her.

She told The New York Times that it was "one of the things that discouraged her from pursuing comedy".

He said of Abby,

One lady said, ‘Louis C.K. masturbated in front of me, ruined my comedy dreams. Word? Well then I dare say, madam, you may have never had a dream. Come on man, that’s a brittle spirit. That is a brittle-ass spirit, that is too much, this grown-ass woman.

He continued, joking that Martin Luther King probably wouldn’t have given up his “dream” if Louis masturbated in front of him.

Bringing up Abby again, Dave said,

Show business is just harder than that,

He continued, 

Them women sound … they sound weak. I know that sounds f**ked up, I’m not supposed to say that, but one of these ladies was like, ‘Louis C.K. was masturbating while I was on the phone with him.’ B*tch, you don’t know how to hang up a phone? How the f**k are you going to survive in show business if this is an actual obstacle to your dreams?

Earlier in his routine, he takes jabs at Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey who were both accused of sexual assault last year.

Dave's stand-up special was recorded in November at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles.
