Chappelle Jokes on ‘SNL’ That COVID-19 Kept ‘Murderous Whites’ from Mass Shootings

Lee Brown, New York Post, November 8, 2020

Dave Chappelle “thanked God” for the coronavirus pandemic during his Saturday Night Live opening monologue — because it stopped “murderous whites” from committing mass shootings.


“She said, ‘The world feels like a safer place now that America has a new president,’” he said. “I said, ‘That’s great, but America doesn’t,’” he insisted, reminding the audience of life “before COVID.”

“A mass shooting every week. Anyone remember that? Thank god for COVID.

“Someone had to lock these murderous whites up, keep them in the house,” he said to loud cheers and clapping from the audience he teased as being “like a woke meeting.”

Chappelle, 47, also targeted “poor white people” who “don’t like wearing masks.”

“What is the problem? You wear a mask at the Klan rally, wear it at the Walmart too,” he said, adding, “Wear your Klan hood at Walmart so we can all feel safe.”
