Dave Chappelle closed his memorable SNL monologue in November with a more serious moment that thanked the departing President Obama and offered a hopeful message to the newly elected Donald Trump. It was a strong statement and meaningful in the aftermath of a divisive election:

“I’m gonna wish Donald Trump luck, and I’m going to give him a chance, and we the historically disenfranchised demand that he give us one too,”

He hadn’t had a chance to get his hands on the country with his team of controversial figures, something that has apparently changed Chappelle’s view on the situation. According to NBC’s Willie Geist, Chappelle showed a little regret for his statement while on stage at the Robin Hood benefit in New York City on Tuesday. According to Geist, Chappelle “f*cked up” when he told the viewing audience “give Trump a chance”:
