In a nod to Dave Chappelle attack, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler get Jack McBrayer to protect them at Netflix Is a Joke Fest

“We saw what happened to Chappelle, and I don’t care what anyone says, I didn’t like it," Fey said during their on-stage conversation. "We were a little worried about that, but I feel like the vibe in here feels good. I don’t feel like anybody is going to try that sh*t.” As a joke, Fey brought up her 30 Rock colleague McBrayer on stage. “It really is an honor to be here,” he said. “But security is important so I do need y’all to know that if you act a fool, I will f*ck your sh*t up. If you come for them, I will come for your nut sack.” Fey and Poehler also discussed the time Kevin Spacey hit on Fey at an SNL afterparty and the time Fey tried to set up Poehler with James Marsden. ALSO: Steve Harvey lost a lot of respect for Will Smith: "You slap me? If you sit back in your seat, Jada would have to move out of the way."
