Japan earthquake: Dave Chappelle, #PrayforJapan, #tsunami trending on Twitter
The Japan earthquake and tsunami, which has left hundreds dead, has dominated the trending charts on Twitter much of Friday morning.
Chappelle hasn't been on TV since 2006, except for an interview with Oprah, and later Anderson Cooper, in which he gave an explanation as to why he quit his hit show and passed up a $50-million contract, citing a loss of creative control and an increasingly uncomfortable workplace.
The comedian still does stand-up from time to time, and the tweet from the @davechappelle accounbt seems to have struck a chord with Twitter users. Sent about 12 hours ago, it says:
