Dave Chappelle Says ‘No One Can Be Woke Enough’ After Hollywood Liberals Turn On Elon Musk
Dave Chappelle said "no one can be woke enough" for Saturday Night Live and the extreme woke Hollywood left on Joe Rogan's podcast.
Elon Musk’s gig hosting “Saturday Night Live” was met with fire from liberal Hollywood, but the Tesla CEO found an ally in comedian Dave Chappelle.
Some SNL cast members rebelled against having the Tesla CEO on the long-running show.
Aidy Bryant and Bowen Yang were among the SNL talent that deleted social media tweets objecting to Musk’s hosting of the show. No wonder they deleted their tweets, they got crushed.
Aidy Bryant went to a $20k/yr private high school…Elon Musk taught himself to code at 10, immigrated to the U.S., built a digital payment company, an electric car company, and a low cost rocket company – using the cash from each success to fund the next. He *should* be rich. https://t.co/DOd4yfhWgO

F#@% Aidy Bryant and whoever the hell Bowen Yang is. Elon Musk is way more interesting and 100% more relevant than these two half-ass comedians.

Elon Musk Announced He Has Asperger’s
Musk’s hosting of the show was a big draw. Many tuned in to watch one of the richest men in the world try his hand at comedy.
Musk kicked things off by informing the audience in his monologue that he has Asperger’s. Take a look:
Still, some were upset that Musk was even on stage given his vast wealth and libertarian viewpoints.
They cannot accept that others have different and political incorrect opinions.
Dave Chappelle knows this all too well.
As a comic who pushes past the liberal barricades, he understands how political correctness is ruining comedy.
He got some backlash after his post 2020 election SNL monologue.
Chappelle discussed Elon Musk’s “Saturday Night Live” appearance on Joe Rogan’s podcast “The Joe Rogan Experience.”
The “Sticks and Stones” comedian didn’t didn’t hold back in his critique of the decades-long running comedy show.
Chappelle And Rogan Puzzled By Reaction to Elon Musk
Chappelle is puzzled by all the fuss surrounding Musk’s debut on SNL. And, Rogan speculated that Musk’s appearance was likely causing controversy because of his extreme wealth and downplaying of COVID-19.
“No one is woke enough,” Joe Rogan told his audience the day before SNL with Elon Musk aired.
“They don’t, they can’t appreciate the fact that you’re dealing with literally one of the most brilliant men that’s ever lived that’s gonna come do your show,” Rogan continued.
“Again like you say no one can be woke enough,” Chappelle responded. “I’m torn because I like a warrior for a good cause but I’m really into tactics.”
Dave Chappelle recognizes that people don’t want to be lectured. It will only make them tune out entirely. Comedy should be an escape not a virtual assault full of woke belies.
“You’re not gonna nag people into behaving in a way that’s — in fact, if you continue with this tone, even if you’re right, you’ll be very hard to hear,” Chappelle continued.

Chappelle also said his interactions with Elon Musk were positive.
“I teased him about being the richest man on earth, and he took it with good humor,” he said.
“What’s funny, I had hung out with him years ago. … We hung out on a tour bus, and he says to me that night … ‘I met you before.’ I’m like, ‘Well, I have no recollection.’ He looked kind of hurt.”
Dave Chappelle made his hosting debut on SNL in 2016. He’s appeared twice as a host and once as a guest.
Think they’ll have him back anytime soon?
