Dave Chappelle may be living life comfortably after that huge $60 million Netflix deal, but the Ohio native is feeling the effects of his statements after his appearance on Saturday Night Live last November.
Just days after Donald Trump was elected, during his 11-minute monologue Chappelle asked viewers to give him a chance (skip to the 10-minute mark).
It’s safe to say the comedian probably feels a little different now.
According to MSNBC’s Willie Geist, while at a charity event in New York City, Chappelle expressed regret for his SNL remarks.
Dave Chappelle tonight in NY on his November SNL monologue: "I was the first guy on TV to say 'Give Trump a chance.' I f***ed up. Sorry."

Buck up Dave. You are certainly not to blame for anything Donald Trump decides to do.
TELL US: Were you ever optimistic about Trump in the White House?
