Surviving R. Kelly Disputes Comedy – Surviving R. Kelly director Dream Hampton is disputing jokes Dave Chappelle made on his Sticks & Stones Netflix special. According to The Wrap, Hampton claims that Chappelle actually misquoted her. During the special, the comedian said he was asked to participate in the documentary on Kelly, but chose not to because he doesn’t know the singer.
He also said, “Dream’s promoting the sh*t and she keeps bringing me up. She said, ‘I asked Dave Chappelle to be in my documentary, and he said it was too hot for TV.’ B*tch, I did not say that. That does not even sound like how I talk.”
Hampton took to Twitter on Tuesday (August 27th) and said, “Quick fact check: I didn’t personally (or casually) invite Chappelle to be interviewed for the doc. The producer responsible for celeb outreach officially asked him, more than once. I haven’t seen or talked to him in about 8 years. Weird he told his joke that way.”
She continued, “Also, obviously, didn’t need Chapelle [sic] to talk about R. Kelly personally. I wanted him to talk about the two pieces of cultural criticism he produced about R. Kelly for the Chapelle [sic] show.”
Hampton added, “I also have never in my life said the words ‘too hot for tv,’ because, b*tch, that’s not how I sound.”
