Last November, when he hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time, Chappelle’s monologue included a bit in which he said he would give President Donald Trump “a chance.” Many people furrowed their brows over this statement, and now six months into Trump’s leaky presidency, Chappelle admitted he “fucked up.”
At a New York City benefit Monday night for Robin Hood, Chappelle reportedly said sorry for that comment.

Chappelle also said in his SNL monologue that Trump must give the American people a chance, but that is not going well either. He touched on Trump’s proposed Muslim ban during his set, too, saying it’s “way out of step” with how Americans feel.
