The comedian performed at the Robin Hood gala in New York last night (May 15), and according to those in attendance, he apologized for the remarks he made on SNL.
"I was the first guy on TV to say 'Give Trump a chance,'" Chappelle said. "I fucked up. Sorry."

"I'm wishing Donald Trump luck," Chappelle originally said in the opening monologue last fall. "And I'm going to give him a chance. And we the historically disenfranchised demand that he gives us one too."
Of course, he also referred to Trump as an "internet troll" come to life.
