Dave Chappelle has asked Netflix to pull his popular "Chapelle's Show" from its lineup, and the comedian told fans not watch his streaming shows on any platform until he is paid.
Chappelle slammed Netflix and ViacomCBS for licensing the Comedy Central hit without paying him.
Deadline.com confirmed the show's removal. Netflix licensed the show on a non-exclusive basis. The show also streams on HBO Max and ViacomCBS platforms like CBS All Access.
Deadline notes that companies license shows by paying the seller who, in turn, pays the artists.
But Chappelle is still waiting for his checks. He posted a video on Instagram titled "Unforgiven" in which he companied that he was not paid by Netflix or ViacomCBS.
