Netflix pulled Chappelle's Show from its streaming library after Dave Chappelle asked them to, based on the fact that he wasn't receiving any royalties, Deadline reports. In a video posted to his Instagram, Chappelle railed against CBSViacom for selling the rights to stream the series to Netflix without him seeing any portion of the proceeds.
In the 18-minute-long clip, which was filmed at a recent stand-up performance, Chappelle discussed what happened with his beloved show.
“They (ViacomCBS) didn’t have to pay me because I signed the contract,” Chappelle said. “But is that right? I found out that these people were streaming my work and they never had to ask me or they never have to tell me. Perfectly legal ‘cause I signed the contract. But is that right?"
