According to reports from TMZ, the comedian is currently quarantining and has yet to experience any symptoms. Chappelle performed the first of 5 shows in Austin on Wednesday night with others scheduled for Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday–now, those have been canceled, for the time being.
Two of the now-canceled, socially-distanced shows were set to feature appearances from Joe Rogan, who was already around Dave this week. Luckily he already told fans that he’s in the clear. He also clarified that Grimes–who previously revealed she tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this month–wasn’t the one who infected Chapelle.
“Because people are asking, I was not exposed to the person who had covid and I have tested negative every day this week,” he wrote on Instagram as he announced the cancellation of the upcoming shows. “Also, the person that gave covid to Dave was NOT Elon’s partner, Grimes.”
Prayers up for Chappelle. We hope he feels better soon.
