After joking around in one of his latest specials by saying he chose to go to the Oscars instead of a Flint Water benefit show, Dave Chappelle actually did help out the effort.

After a recent show in Flint, Dave Chappelle announced a $50,000 donation to them. He said:

“I’m honored that you guys came here tonight,” he said to the audience. “I want you to know that just by coming to see me you supported this city. I’m not taking a dime.”

So shout out to Dave for keeping the support going for a problem that may have slipped people’s minds.
