Dave Chappelle complained that he never saw any money from the deal that put the show on to the streaming platform, where he also has a lucrative deal for stand-up specials.
During a recent stand-up special, which the 47-year-old shared on social media Tuesday, he explained why he was "furious" to learn that it was being streamed, as well as his reasoning to have his most famous work pulled off the popular service.
Netflix has taken down episodes of "Chappelle's Show" following a request from Dave Chappelle himself, who blasted ViacomCBS for licensing the show without paying him.
'People think I made a lot of money from Chappelle's Show, ' he said in the clip.
Chappelle co-created and starred in the Comedy Central series from 2003-2006. Chappelle recently spoke about the inconsiderate move during his Saturday Night Live monologue, and now he's released a video that explains his position and how he plans to bring those responsible to task.
During the show, the actor reflected on the many times during his career, particularly when he was starting out, when he was "intimidated" and taken advantage of by others in the industry. And he was surprised to discover Chappelle's Show streaming there - as well as on HBO Max - because he did not approve the decisions, or get paid for them.
While discussing the language in contracts he's signed as an "artist", Dave rattled off some legalese to the audience, asking 'who the f**k could possibly know what that means?' They (ViacomCBS) didn't have to pay me because I signed the contract.
'That's how I got with Comedy Central, ' he said from the stage. Perfectly legal 'cause I signed the contract. 'And, it wasn't good money and it wasn't good circumstances but, ugh, "what else am I going to do?" I found out that these people were streaming my work and they never had to ask me or they never have to tell me.
He continues in the video, "That's why I like working for Netflix". 'I like working for Netflix because when all those bad things happened to me, that company didn't even exist. And you want to know what they did? I called them and I told them that this makes me feel bad.
He also shared that before going to Comedy Central, he pitched Chappelle's Show to HBO and the executives callously asked him 'what do we need you for?' Chappelle has had a lucrative stand-up deal with Netflix for the past four years, and "Chappelle's Show" first became available on the platform on November 1.
