The Chappelle Theory

chappelle_theory.jpg 

A new website, ChappelleTheory.com, is claiming to tell the true story of the rise and fall of the Dave Chappelle Show and the real reason why we won’t be seeing a full 3rd season. The site’s homepage bears a message from the "retired PR exec" who tells the story, and assures visitors that this is the truth, with no "embellishments or exaggerations."

What follows is a bizarre conspiracy theory alleging that a group of "dark crusaders" made up of prominent black celebrities including Oprah Winfrey, Bill Cosby, Louis Farrakhan, and Al Sharpton; have been secretly conspiring to ruin Dave Chappelle and remove his show from the air. Some of the incredible allegations include:

  • Dave received a voodoo doll of himself dressed up like the crackhead character from his show, Clayton Bigsby Tyrone Biggums, riddled with pins and with a noose around his its neck. Along with the doll was a note that read "what you’re doing is hurting the African American community — it needs to stop."
  • One day while Dave and his mother were at the movies, Al Sharpton himself snuck up behind Dave and whispered in his ear "I didn’t appreciate the mockery directed at reparations in last season’s shows. You should be ashamed of selling out the community for cheap laughs and ratings."
  • While watching an episode of the Oprah Winfrey show, Chappelle recalled being completely stunned when Winfrey turned to the camera in the middle of interviewing Tom Cruise and said "Dave Chappelle, you should be ashamed of yourself for airing that Niggars sketch on your show this week, I’m going to make sure you never work in Hollywood again." The site goes on to claim that this image of Oprah was transmitted only to Dave’s house by Robert L. Johnson, founder of BET!
  • One night Dave woke up to find a man on top of him with an enormous gun aimed at his face and two other men holding him down. Who was with them in Dave’s bedroom, but Oprah herself who told Dave: "you better watch your step — we’re representing interests more powerful than you can imagine. You do remember that Farrakhan killed Malcolm, and that Cosby, Johnson and I have more money than God — we can keep this harassment up forever. Is this what you want your life to be like Dave?"

The site is very well put together and is actually slightly convincing for a page or two, but then the allegations quickly become too fantastic and exaggerated to take seriously. Whoever put this together must of had the first two seasons of Chappelle’s Show on DVD and alot of time on their hands. Too bad they didn’t show some restraint with the story, they might have actually had some of us buying it for longer than 30 seconds.

    I’m gullible as hell, because I caught myself agreeing with what this person was saying. Who knows what is really going down in the world of black entertainment. Sometimes I wish I was psychic.

    thanx for this post!

    Clayton Bigsby wasn’t the crackhead, he was the black, blind, white supremecist. Tyrone Biggums was the crackhead.

    I heard Dave ended his show, because non-blacks ran with the stereotpyes and would say the word nigga, even when walking up to him.

    I got no beef with Chapelle brand of comedy.. Sure he harped on negative stereo types of blacks but he did it differently than say Chris Rock who I’m not a fan of. Chris Rock always came off like a uncle tom to me.

    I think the site is a load of bull. I was believing it until they went to the extremes of what they said with the situations that happened such as Oprah and Robert Johnson paying off Dave’s local cable company to interrrupt specifically just Dave’s TV while he was watching Oprah at his house so that Oprah could tell Dave to stop his skits. Pure crap.

    Also, to the poster above me, if you think Chris Rock’s comedy made him come off like he was an Uncle Tom then you really don’t understand his comedy at all. In no way does he come off like that if you get his jokes.

    IMO….i might be the only person on the planet that does not care for no damn chappelle or his show….the crackhead dude was funny…but i know funnier comedians…..

    as for setting us back….BET…bill cosby and his antics…yet and still having children out of wedlock…oprah not even associating with black folks…at least the ones we (the non-oreos) can identify with.

    DID YOU NOT READ THE DISCLAIMER ON THE FRONT PAGE?

    That site has to be bogus as hell. I read it a while back. More false media propaganda nonsense.

    *off subject*

    Chris Rock comes off as an Uncle Tom to some? Wow! That shocked me. What’s really different from what he says and what Chappelle puts in his sketches. To me, Rock comes with more truth. It seems that the more truthful you get about things, the more people see you as an Uncle Tom. lol Typical American logic and double standard.
