It’s Friday, I was hoping to have a great day of beer with the boys and I woke up to see that Dave Chappelle tested positive for coronavirus.

If Chappelle isn’t safe from coronavirus, then none of us are. That man is a living legend, and he still got the virus.

It just goes to show that coronavirus truly doesn’t care who it impacts. He’s the king of comedy! Is nothing of limits anymore!

I also truly feel bad for the people who bought tickets to his show and will now have to miss it. I went to a Chappelle standup show a few years ago.

It was absolutely hysterical. Without a doubt the funniest comedy show I’ve ever been to.

Get well soon, Dave! We’re all pulling for him.
