Comedian Dave Chappelle has shared his two cents on the Access Hollywood tape which revealed Trump making lewd comments about women, and he seems to be siding with him.

According to the Observer, Chappelle has accused Hillary Clinton of releasing the tape, and accused the media of "twisting" Trump's words.

Chappelle has been preparing for his November 12 hosting slot on Saturday Night Live by putting on surprise shows at The Cutting Room in New York. At one such show on Friday night, he devoted the better part of his 60-minute to the subject, the Observer reports.


"What I heard on that tape was gross, but the way I got to hear it was even more gross. You know that came directly from Hillary," Chappelle reportedly said.

He also went on to say Trump's comments did not hint at sexual assault at all.

"Sexual assault? It wasn't. He said, 'And when you're a star, they let you do it.' That phrase implies consent. I just don't like the way the media twisted that whole thing. Nobody questioned it," Chappelle said.

Despite having apparently already voted for Clinton, Chappelle still slammed the presidential candidate, saying: "She's going to be on a coin someday. And her behaviour has not been coin-worthy.

"She's not right and we all know she's not right."
