NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Comedian Dave Chappelle released a new Netflix special on Friday, in which he called Staten Island an “awful place” and cursed out its residents.
“Eric Garner was selling loose cigarettes in Staten Island when my kid was born, my first son. My wife lived on Staten Island. It’s an awful place. She knows it. Everyone who’s ever been there knows it. Yuck to Staten Island,” he said.
“And I’ve got a lot of fans there, and friends there, but it’s a very terrible place," he added. "F--- everybody on Staten Island except the the Wu-Tang Clan."
Garner “got murdered by one police officer while five of his fellow officers watched him do it," he said.
Chappelle also discussed George Floyd’s death — and commentator Candace Owens’ response to it — in the special.
