Dave Chappelle Talks Elon Musk On SNL, Bought Weed From Idris Elba – Deadline

Chappelle admitted he was confused by all the excitement.

“Nobody woke up enough,” said Rogan. “You cannot appreciate the fact that you are dealing with one of the most brilliant men who have ever lived.”

Chappelle recalled his interactions with the Tesla CEO and described him as “incredibly nice”.

“I teased him about being the richest man in the world and he took it in a good mood,” said Chappelle. “What’s funny, I hung out with him years ago after leaving Chappelle’s show. … We were hanging out on a tour bus and he said to me that night … “I’ve met you before.” I say, “Well, I have no memory.” He looked kind of hurt. “

Chappelle suggested he understand why some people were put off by Musk’s behavior.
