Dave Chappelle Says Fuck The Poor, Helps Kills Affordable Housing Plan In Ohio

Posted February 9, 2022 by with 25 comments

I wonder who Dave Chappelle hates more: Trans people or poor people? The “comedian” is continuing his quest to punch down on as many marginalized groups as possible, this time by speaking out against an affordable housing development that would’ve been built near his residence in Ohio. Because it just wouldn’t be right to have working class or lower income people living anywhere near celebrity multi-millionaires, now would it? Via Dayton Daily News:

Oberer Homes can move forward with a new development in Yellow Springs, but without an affordable housing component initially promised to the village, after council voted against the village’s own plan Monday night.

The village and Oberer had worked together to produce a plan that would include duplexes and affordable housing along with single-family homes in a 53-acre area along Spillan Road at the south edge of town.

The village initially asked for the development to advance affordable housing in the village, including an area that the village would later be able to develop into affordable housing, as well as more duplexes and townhomes.

But Monday night, after complaints from numerous residents, including comedian Dave Chappelle, village council voted 2-2 with one abstention on the revised “planned unit development” zoning.

That means the zoning reverts to what was previously approved, with 143 single-family homes on the lot, with the homes starting at about $300,000, according to village documents.

Chappelle even threatened to pull his business interests from the village, which include a plan for a restaurant called “Firehouse Eatery” and comedy club called “Live from YS.” Chappelle’s company, Iron Table Holdings LLC, bought the former Miami Twp. fire station at 225 Corry St. in December. Chappelle repeated his threat again on Monday night in the village council meeting.

“I am not bluffing,” he said. “I will take it all off the table.”
