Katt Williams made some pretty wild statements about Dave Chappelle‘s career being destroyed by disgruntled executive during a recent radio interview.
While promoting his upcoming HBO special, Priceless, the comedian went on “The Don Magic Juan Show” to chop it up about other heavy hitters in the comedy game. Katt may have a huge following, but he’s humble about his talent. He holds up Bernie Mac as a huge inspiration in his own career.
That’s when things started to go left because Katt went on a tangent about all of the things go on behind the scenes in the entertainment industry. “The reason you don’t know these stories is because there’s no one to tell you, and you can’t make me tell you,” the comedian said with a smile.
Moments later, Katt was spilling some major tea about what he claims happened to Dave Chappelle’s career. Without naming any names, the embattled comedian implied that the powers that be at Comedy Central conspired to ruin Dave’s career by assassinating his character. “Dave Chappelle was decapitated in front of us,” said Katt.
“They called him Pilot Boy because he had 19 pilots in Hollywood and everybody passed on him and said his show wasn’t worth it,” “Then when he made $500 million, even though his contract said he should get half of it, they said he made too much for the contract to be valid.”
According to Katt, executives offered Dave $50 million on a contract, which is only 10 percent of what he actually made. When Dave protested being grossly underpaid, Katt stated that executives were quick to turn on him.
“He said, ‘What do you think my fans are going to say when they find out you offered me 10 percent of what I made you?’ And they said, ‘Your fans will believe that you’re a crazy crackhead by the time you get home.’ ” Katt stated. “By the time he got to Ohio, it was so.”
Katt added, “Eight years later he hasn’t been in a movie or on television. He’s just not trying to do his real comeback.”
Do you think there’s truth to what Katt Williams is saying?
