    Dave Chappelle appeared to shut down further speculation about whether or not he's still hosting "Saturday Night Live" this weekend following reports about a writer boycott on the show.

    The 49-year-old comedian appeared in a advertisement from "SNL" as he and cast member Ego Nwodim appeared to joke a about whether he will still appear on the show, the Daily Mail reported.

    "'Wait, we're doing it live?" Chappelle replied. "Of course," Nwodim shared, "With you?"

    "Obviously," the comedian replied.

    The cast member then asked, "In this news cycle?" And Chappelle replied, "Yep."

    Chappelle also reportedly joked that the episode will be "so black it'll be on BET," the outlet noted.

    In another clip shared from the official account for "SNL," the "Chappelle's Show" star announced that he's "hosting SNL" this week as he introduced the musical guest Black Star.

    The account for the late-night sketch comedy show also appeared to be shutting down further speculation about the comedian hosting when it tweeted a littler earlier, "Read-thru with Dave Chappelle!" The post included a photo of Chappelle sitting around a writer's table.

    It all comes following reports that some writers reportedly threatened to boycott the show if Chappelle was picked to host, as The Daily Wire previously reported.

    "They're not going to do the show," an insider reportedly shared with the outlet. "But none of the actors are boycotting."

    Chappelle - who has faced a backlash in the last year over his comments regarding transgender people in his Netflix special "The Closer," as well as a variety of stand-up shows where he's been accused of telling "transphobic" and "homophobic" jokes - reportedly upset writers after producers picked him, Page Six noted.

    The "Half Baked" star has maintained that the backlash against him isn't about his comments and has everything to do with "corporate interests," NPR noted.

    "It's about corporate interests, and what I can say, and what I cannot say," Chappelle previously shared. "For the record, and I need you to know this, everyone I know from that [LGBTQ] community has been loving and supportive, so I don't know what this nonsense is about."

    It will be Chappelle's third time hosting the NBC late-night sketch show.

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?
