The Internet Is Going Nuts Over NBA Dissing Dave Chappelle
Dave Chappelle was at the Cavs-Celtics game, and the NBA tweeted out a GIF of he and Amy Schumer. It was the caption that got the internet riled up.
From the looks of the GIF, Chappelle was seated next to Amy Schumer during game three of the Eastern Conference Finals. They were caught on camera together, both knowingly being videoed.
The official NBA Twitter account, usually playing it pretty safe, is either trolling Chappelle, or they have no idea who the arguably biggest name in comedy in the past decade is.
"Amy and a fan..." Really? This is hard to wrap my head around. I want to say it's a young intern that runs the account, and if they're around 18-20 years old, they were between 7-9 years old when Chappelle's Show went off the air. Famously, Dave Chappelle didn't do a whole lot in the public eye from then, until this year. But it's not like people didn't talk about, or quote him constantly between those years.
Maybe that intern is just a huge sports person, and they don't really know the entertainment side everything. But they obviously know who Amy Schumer is, so that's out of the window.
It just doesn't make sense...
