Katt Williams’ Viral Interview on Shannon Sharpe’s Club Shay Shay

Katt Williams’ viral interview with Shannon has become one of the most viewed episodes on the show. It’s no surprise, as the comedian made some never-before-heard accusations and launched attacks on prominent figures in the industry.

During the interview, Katt took aim at nearly every male celebrity of color, questioning their authenticity and fame. He insulted Ludacris’ wife while suggesting that the actor earned his role in the Fast & Furious franchise because of his alleged affiliation with the Illuminati.

Cedric the Entertainer was mocked for his appearance and criticized for allegedly stealing Katt’s jokes. Michael Blackson was ridiculed for his accent, being referred to as a fake African. Steve Harvey was labeled as someone who knew nothing about acting.

Dave Chappelle Criticizes Katt Williams’ Approach to Addressing Issues on the Platform

Speaking as a guest at D-Day Davis’ Hollywood event, Dave expressed his disappointment in Katt’s tendency to belittle his fellow Black comedians while avoiding criticism of white comedians. According to Dave, this is a double standard that white comedians would never engage in.

Dave acknowledged Katt’s talent in comedy but emphasized that bringing others down based on personal experiences doesn’t make sense. As stated in the article from Deadline, Dave added:

“Katt is one of the best painters in the game. So why are you drawing ugly pictures of us? Stop. Hurt people hurt people, but I am a hurt person that never hurt people, and he does it all the time.”

In Dave’s opinion, Katt’s confession during the interview was biased, as he neglected to mention if he had ever wronged the celebrities he criticized. Instead, Katt focused solely on those who had hurt him in the past without providing an objective perspective.

Celebrities like Cedric, Michael, Ludacris, and Steve have expressed their disappointment or frustration in various ways. While some have chosen to take the high road and not engage in a public feud, others have responded with heated remarks, defending themselves and celebrating their own success.
