A lot can be said about the state of America in 2020. On Sunday, Aug. 16, Katt Williams said his piece. 

In a nearly seven minute Instagram commercial for skateboarding clothing brand Supreme, the comedian took the stage in a room void of an audience.

Presented in the form of a stand-up set, he unleashed his thoughts on everything from President Donald Trump and Coronavirus to systemic racism

When discussing Trump, he asserted, “We got a guy who’s advice included things that no decent crackhead would tell you to do with a gunshot wound.” Williams referred specifically to his suggestion that people inject bleach to cure COVID-19, concluding “These are serious times, President’s a clown.”

The comedian instead urged people to wear their masks amid the pandemic, offering a brief history of Hart Island — an island used for mass burials of disease victims and unclaimed bodies — which was filled with AIDS victims in the ’80s and ’90s.

“This isn’t the first time New York has gone through something like this, and this isn’t the first time our country has gone [through] what it’s going through now,” Williams warned.

Finally, the comedian shared his stance on the tragic killing of George Floyd.

“Because we can all agree breathing is important, we can all agree that you putting your knee on a man’s neck for eight minutes … It’s just murder,” he said. “It’s just televised murder. … I’m not gonna hide in a bunker, I’m on the front line with you.”

He ultimately expressed his support for those fighting in support of Black lives, stating “Let’s stick on facts. Black Lives Matter, period.” 

By the end of the clip, Williams joked that the speech wasn’t really a stand-up routine, but claimed that with his words alone, he’s “already done more than an elected official.”
