Twitter went into a frenzy as social media users reacted to none of the contestants naming the star comedian.
Meanwhile, the comedian has been laying low after testing positive for COVID-19 earlier this month.
His rep said in a statement that he was canceling a handful of shows in Texas as he quarantined.
“Dave Chappelle is quarantined after testing positive for COVID-19. His remaining shows at Stubbs Waller Creek Amphitheater in Austin, TX have been canceled and ticket holders should contact their point of purchase for refunds.”
They added that Dave Chappelle practiced safe COVID-19 guidelines while performing amid the pandemic.
“Chappelle has safely conducted socially-distanced shows in Ohio since June 2020 and he moved those shows to Austin during the winter. Chappelle implemented COVID-19 protocols which included rapid testing for the audience and daily testing for himself and his team. His diligent testing enabled him to immediately respond by quarantining, thus mitigating the spread of the virus. Chappelle is asymptomatic.”
