Dave Chappelle regrets not texting Bob Saget just before his death

Bob Saget sadly passed away this week at the age of 65 and thousands of heartfelt condolences poured in for the late comedian.

One came from comedian Dave Chapelle, who was close friends with Saget, and he revealed how he learned an unfortunate lesson in light of events.

Chapelle was performing at the Peppermint Club in West Hollywood on Thursday, Jan. 13, when he recounted the painful events to his audience.

Saget had texted him shortly before his death, but Chapelle never returned the text.

“But I didn’t see Bob coming,” he said during his performance.

“Dude, he just texted me and I saw the text yesterday and never replied to him because I was just busy. Yeah, it happens. I’m just saying this to remind you that these moments are precious. “

He then said you never know what will happen so we have to act on it.

According to TMZ, the comedians were close friends and Chapelle supported Saget through his scleroderma fundraising events.

Saget’s sister died of the disease aged 47, so he vowed to be a champion in the search for a cure.

In the wake of his painful memory, Chapelle went on to respond to the criticism he received about his last Netflix special, which was particularly controversial within the LGBTQ+ community.

He said: “2022 the new me won’t be doing any of those transphobic bigoted jokes.

Dave added: “I’ll tell you something else, I’m not in battle with the transgender community, it’s ridiculous. ”

In October last year, Netflix faced calls to remove Chapelle’s comedy special following harmful comments he made regarding the transgender community.

The hatred directed at Chappelle stemmed from his comment on JK Rowling, in which he defended his views on gender and sex.

“They canceled JK Rowling, my God. In fact, she said gender was a fact, the trans community went crazy as shit, they started calling her a TERF,” he said on the Netflix show.

“I am the TERF team. I agree. I agree, man. “

However, he went on to say that “people who watch my specials would know that I’ve never had a problem with transgender people.”

Following this, Chappelle asked why he wasn’t canceled in 2018, when he admitted to shooting and killing a man in a supermarket.

When asked about reviews of his stand-up show, he replied, “If it’s like being canceled, I love it.

“F**k Twitter. F**k NBC News, ABC News, all those stupid networks**. I don’t talk to them. I’m talking to you. It’s real life. ”
