Dave Chappelle Drops '8:46'...

Dave Chappelle has released a new Netflix special called 8:46 on YouTube, bypassing a traditional release on the platform, allowing the content to be available to watch for free.

Known for his critical social commentary, in the half-hour special Chappelle rips 2020 apart with poignant discussions about the police killing of George Floyd, not accepting his Grammy award on the same day Kobe Bryant died, and left scathing words for Laura Ingraham, Candance Ownes, and Don Lemon, to an extent.

The special, performed in Yellow Springs, Ohio in front of a live COVID-19 tested audience, is called 8:46. The title is a reference at the amount of minutes and seconds officer Derek Chauvin had his knee on the neck of Floyd as he died. He praised the protests and rejected comments from folks like Lemon calling on celebrities to make comments on the matter and subsequent Black Lives Matter movement.

He also called out the hypocrisy of Igraham calling LeBron James out for speaking on racism and relates it to Kobe. He also spoke about several police killings that’s happened in recent history, dating back to Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Filandro Castille, and the death of John Crawford. He notes the same officer that killed him pulled Chappelle over the night before with a warning. Chappelle even touches on the crimes of Dylann Roof. He also notes how retaliating police murders during these deaths were from black, former military, and stated the reason for their actions were related to acts of terrorism in part of the police.

The video comes with a disclaimer stating: “From Dave: Normally I wouldn’t show you something so unrefined, I hope you understand,” with a link to the Equal Justice Initiative, a nonprofit organization aimed at ending mass incarceration and racial inequality. Its founder is Bryan Stevenson, the main focus of 2019’s Just Mercy, starring Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx.
