Fans Walk Out of Dave Chappelle Show After His Israel 'War Crime' Comments

Fans walked out of a David Chappelle comedy show after he blasted Israel over so-called war crimes against Gaza.

The departures occurred during Chappelle's Boston show at the TD Garden on Thursday.

"Chappelle condemned Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack on Israel that left some 1,400 Israelis dead — but blasted what he claimed were Israel’s war crimes in Gaza, sparking some pushback from the crowd," the New York Post reported.

"The brouhaha started when a member of the audience told Chappelle to 'shut up' after he said he didn’t think people should lose their jobs for supporting Palestinians," it added.

"Three students, who attend either Harvard or Columbia, were denied job offers at a top law firm after they signed on to a letter supporting Hamas," Fox News reported.

"Davis Polk & Wardwell, a law firm in NYC, rescinded letters of employment for three law students at Harvard and Columbia universities after the students signed on to open letters supporting Hamas after their deadly terrorist attacks against Israel," it continued.

The controversial statement is not the only one Chappelle has been blasted over in recent months.

In May, Cappelle criticized the city of San Francisco during a show where he complained about concerns over homelessness in the city.

The controversial comedian is no stranger to frustrating audiences but his recent remarks against Israel were too much for many in his crowd.

The words came shortly after Hamas terrorists killed over 1,300 people in Israel, with the nation now fighting back against the militant group in the Gaza Strip in retaliation for the brutal attacks.
