Although the magical blue verified check hasn’t appeared yet, very reliable sources are confirming that legendary comedian, Dave Chappelle has joined twitter. His twitter handle, @ChappelleDavidK, was chosen due to the large amount of false accounts that have taken his desired name of plain old @DaveChappelle. After several people like Aziz Ansari, Talib Kweli, Neal Brennan and Questlove all confirmed that this is indeed the real Dave Chappelle, he took a twitpic of himself on a motorcycle “in deep thought.” Twitter has to be a big step for the notoriously reclusive comedian, who fell back from fame after walking out on a $50,000,000 deal for a third season of his famed skit series, Chappelle’s Show in 2005. The famed series included cameos and performances from the late Rick James, The Roots, Black Star, De La Soul, DMX and more.
We could imagine it would be too much to ask for a return to the hilarious show, but this is a start.
