  • HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The mayor of Hartford, Conn., says comedian Dave Chappelle should “quit whining” about being heckled.

    Chappelle walked off a stage last week after being heckled in Hartford, the state capital.

    Audio posted on TMZ.com shows Chappelle praised an audience in Chicago on Tuesday for being “so much better than Hartford.” Chappelle told the crowd if North Korea drops an atomic bomb on the United States he hopes it “lands in Hartford,” best known for its insurance companies and as the home of writers including Mark Twain.

    To cheers and laughter he said he wouldn’t even go back to Hartford for gas.

    Mayor Pedro Segarra issued a statement Thursday calling Chappelle’s remarks “immature and inappropriate.” He sent a Tweet saying Chappelle should “quit whining, do his job and try some yoga.”
