Dave Chappelle aurait critiqué San Francisco lors d’un spectacle surprise : « Qu’est-ce qui s’est passé dans cet endroit ? »

Comedian Dave Chappelle reportedly took aim at San Francisco's homeless crisis during a surprise set at the SF Masonic Auditorium on Thursday night.

Dave Chappelle, the popular comedian and Netflix star, recently criticized San Francisco’s homelessness crisis during a surprise show at the SF Masonic Auditorium. Chappelle recounted an experience where a homeless person defecated in front of an Indian restaurant he was dining at in the city’s Tenderloin district. He referred to San Francisco as his « second home » and said that the entire city had become the Tenderloin now. The Tenderloin district is notorious for its crime, homelessness, and drug problems.

San Francisco has been struggling to deal with a steep increase in homelessness and crime in recent years. It is estimated that 38,000 people are living on the streets in San Francisco on any given night, which represents a 35% increase since 2019. Crime and homelessness concerns in San Francisco have been exacerbated by a police staffing shortage where the department saw a 12% decrease in its number of full-duty sworn officers from 2019 to 2022.

Though San Francisco has become known as the epicenter of the homelessness crisis, the problem is statewide. A recent study found that a third of the U.S.’s entire homeless population and half of all unsheltered homeless people live in California. The state is home to the country’s most Continuums of Care, which organize and administer services to the homeless population, with 44 centers compared to runner-up Florida, which has only 27.

The homelessness crisis in San Francisco and California as a whole is a complex issue that requires a multifaceted solution. It is important for policymakers to address the root causes of homelessness, such as lack of affordable housing and mental health and addiction issues, while also providing immediate assistance to those in need.
