Just the other day footage surfaced of Funnyman Dave Chappelle and his disappointing set during his hour-long charity set in Miami for the Seminole Indians.

The same Chappelle who turned down a multimillion-dollar deal with Comedy Central-yeah him.

This was an all time low for former Chappelle Show star, who was booed off stage and received horrible reviews via Tweets by CNN’s Roland Martin.

The comedian even stopped midway to check his text messages.

After flooding the net with  headlines of his laugh-less evening, Chappelle made an appearance the next day apologizing.

“It’s not like a mean person, I might not act on it, but I felt myself being mean,” Chappelle said during an appearance. “I’d like to apologize to the Seminole Indians. Big shout-out to the Seminoles.”

He also went on to explain this wasn’t the first time he choked up on stage, recalling the 2004 MTV Video Music Awards.

“I was kind of a pariah at the VMAs,” he remembered. “Nobody really wanted to be around me because I snapped on the other celebrities.”

A representative from the Seminole Indian Tribe released a statement saying “the Tribe appreciates and accepts his apology and welcomes him back anytime.”
