Dave Chappelle battled with some of the people in the crowd at his show in Hartford, Connecticut last week. He was relentlessly heckled and basically mailed in his 25-minute performance afterwards.
During the comedian's show in Chicago on Tuesday (September 2nd) he went off on the people of Hartford.
"F*ck Hartford. I swear to God, f*ck that whole city. I will never go back. I won't even go to Hartford for gas. I don't want anything bad to happen to the United States," Chappelle said. "But if North Korea ever drops a nuclear bomb on this country, I swear to God I hope it lands in Hartford, Connecticut."
Dave wasn't done there.
"That crowd was evil. Those motherf*ckers were torturous," he continued. "Young white alcoholics. Just booing and talking all kinds of sh*t. I wanted to pull a reverse Kramer and call them all 'crackers' or something crazy like that," Dave added, referring to comedian Michael Richards infamous n-word-laden 2006 meltdown at the Laugh Factory in West Hollywood.
Hartford's mayor Pedro Segarra heard what Dave was saying about his city and responded today via Twitter.
Dave Chappelle should quit whining, do his job and try some yoga. #HartfordHasIt P.E.S.

Segarra also gave a statement to TMZ.
"His recent remarks were immature and inappropriate," Segarra said. "[He] should stick to his job, give the fans what they paid for and not disparage the good people of Hartford."
