At the point when Donald Glover came by the WGA Awards in New York to introduce “NewsRadio” maker and “Atlanta” leader maker Paul Simms with the Herb Sargent Award for Satire Greatness on Sunday night, he carved out an opportunity to get a couple of hits in at his broadly horrendous “Community” co-star Chevy Chase. For a long time, Glover has been open about Chase’s racist way of behaving towards him on the arrangement of the NBC show, which he insinuated during his speech regarding Simms.
“This award was named after Herb Sargent, an essayist who chipped away at ‘Saturday Night Live’ and concocted the ‘End of the week Update’ with Chevy Chase,'” Glover said toward the start of his comments. “Chevy Chase once called Herb perhaps of the most amusing author working in TV. Also, Chevy Chase once called me… you know this is about Paul.”
His long comedic stop persuaded numerous to think he was alluding to Chase calling him the N-word. Assuming anybody felt skeptical about that, they were eradicated when Glover brought Chase up again in an account about shooting “Young ladies” (which Simms additionally created).
“I was on the arrangement of ‘Young ladies’ after shooting an intimate moment for eight hours,” Glover said. “They slice down to two minutes; I’ve never seen the remainder of that recording. Subsequently, I asked Lena, ‘Yo, what caused you to choose to work with Paul?'” And she goes, ‘really, this n — allows me to do anything I desire.’ And I thought of two things. One, Lena is utilizing the N-word very generously. Who does she assume she is, Chevy Chase? Furthermore, two, that is the sort of maker I need.”
Glover’s remarks about Lena Dunham utilizing Dark racial slurs to portray Simms (who is white) were more likely than not facetious — however, his opinions about Chase presumably weren’t. In a 2018 meeting, Glover and “Community” maker Dan Harmon both discussed Chase’s racist way of behaving.
“Chevy was quick to acknowledge how gigantically gifted Donald was and how he communicated he desired to attempt to perplex Donald,” Harmon said. “I was sorry to Donald following an especially unpleasant evening of Chevy’s non-P.C. verbiage, and Donald told, ‘I don’t for a moment even stress over it.'”
“I just noticed Chevy as battling time,” Glover added. “A genuine craftsman must be good with his rule being finished. I can’t support him assuming that he’s whipping in the water. Yet, I know there’s a human someplace — he’s excessively human.”
