Dave Chapelle Predicted Pepé Le Pew Backlash Over 20 Years Ago

Dave Chappelle is known for keeping it real, and obviously, being hilarious. He may also have to add psychic to his resume, as it appears he called out Pepé Le Pew's creepy behavior over 20 years ago!

While parents in living rooms have been saying similar remarks for years, Dave was one of the first to publically call out the Looney Tunes.

TW: This article contains discussions of sexual assault and may be triggering to some readers.

As you most likely know by now, it was announced last week that Pepé Le Pew will not be included in the upcoming *Space Jam* sequel.

Jane the Virgin actor Greice Santo revealed that a scene featuring her and Looney Tunes character Pepé Le Pew has been cut from the upcoming Space Jam: A New Legacy.

Santo and Le Pew were supposed to appear together in a black-and-white scene parodying "Casablanca" where she beats up the cartoon skunk for being sexually aggressive.

It's no secret the French skunk was known solely for being overly aggressive in his pursuit of a black cat, Penelope Pussycat.

His character has come under fire recently for being the epitome of rape culture.

Every time a female fought back against Pepé, he'd see it as a sign of interest, and never took no for an answer.

While the news of the cut scene from *Space Jam* is pointing out the skunk's behaviour for the first time, fans were quick to remember Dave Chapelle's comedy special.

Back in 2000, during his Killin' Me Softley comedy special, Dave pointed out how creepy Pepé Lew Pew was while rewatching the cartoons with his nephew.

"Like, I was with my nephew, sitting there watching Pepé Le Pew, and I said, 'Now, pay attention to this guy because he's funny. I used to watch him when I was little," he says in the bit.

"And we're watching Pepé Le Pew, and… Good god, what kind of [expletive] rapist is this guy? Take it easy, Pepé!'"

In the bit, Dave's young nephew responds to the skunk by taking a terrible lesson from him — sometimes you just have to "take" what you want from women.

Obviously, this is a distressing takeaway message, which further cements why parents don't care for Pepé on their children's screens anymore.
