Claims In An Interview

Chevy Chase, one of the funniest and innovative comedians, SNL’s first breakout star, has an adorable personality. 

But the criticism he had to endure being as a villain, arrogant, tonic show killer and impossible person to work with affected him mentally and emotionally.

As a result, his different personalities showed up, which shrank his reputation.

 Now, he is living in a pleasant place, isolated from others. Time has tested his resilience. 

When his movies began failing, he started hosting the show, Saturday Night Live

This brought him to NBC’s sitcom Community. And there he had to battle with different controversies and conflicting issues related to Dan Harman and other casts.

 When Harman mocked him in front of everyone, Chevy sent a voice message which was publicized spoiling his prestige. 

Then others started taking his jokes as nasty slight and racially insensitive, especially of Donald Glover.

When asked about leaving the show, he said his efforts to become part of the cast were eschewed consistently. 

Reporter realized that he worked all time and still has an immense desire to give the best work to the public, but somehow a negative perceived image of him spoiled it. 

Thus, he was hurt and gets angry and defensive. Chevy thought that people write negatively of him due to jealously rather than the perception of him. 

He told me that he knows who he is and feels proud of who he is, and others who know this cherish him. So, he doesn’t care what others think and write about him.
