'These MFs have been trying to cancel me for 30 years': Ice-T slams trolls on Dave Chappelle hosting SNL
Ice-T took to Twitter to hit out at trolls who were targeting both him and Dave Chappelle
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Over the years, viewers of Lorne Michaels and NBC's 'Saturday Night Live' have grown accustomed to surprising guest stars making an appearance in the middle of the episode. For the third time in his career, Dave Chappelle hosted the post-election Saturday Night Live episode. Alongside Chappelle, Donnell Rawlings and Ice-T reprised their respective roles from the 'The Playa Haters' Ball'. In keeping with his return to the hits, Chappelle also made an appearance as Rick James. The episode was not only provocative and thought-provoking but possibly the strongest of the season yet.
According to the AV Club, Chappelle's pick as host was controversial thanks to his remarks against transgenders during his contentious Netflix special 'The Closer'. Chappelle even found himself the victim of an assault while performing on stage at a Netflix event at the Hollywood Bowl. This week, 'SNL' has also drawn a lot of attention owing to rumors that writers would boycott the episode. There are claims that certain cast members were disgruntled by Chappelle's involvement in the program.
There were, nevertheless, plenty of highlights in the show. The zenith, excluding the monologue, which was excellent, was Chappelle and 'SNL' making fun of the new 'Game of Thrones' spinoff, 'House of the Dragon'.
“I am the biggest Game of Thrones fan, I love the new show. And I gotta tell you, I love that they are including Black characters but to be honest, the Black characters — they take me out a little bit with the old time accents, it’s a little jarring like, where are these people from?” said Chapelle to start off the skit.
Guest star and rapper Ice-T has also been trolled on the internet. The 'Law & Order' actor took to Twitter to hit out at trolls slamming both him and Chapelle. "Somebody said they’re gonna CANCEL me after doing SNL with Dave Chappelle.. LOL! These MFs have been trying to Cancel me for over 30yrs!" said the rapper.
“Cancel you over what. It’s the first time I’m looking forward to watching Saturday night live in years” said a Twitter user in response. Another made a callback to Ice-T’s early days, stating “Closer to 40-45 years! Since the ['80s] and then HBOs 'Pimps Up, Hoes Down!'" Amongst tweets on cancel culture, another user went on to state, "You and Dave Chappelle may be the last people worth ever watching on that show. It’s days are numbered. Comedians trying to cancel comedians? Now THATS funny."
