I meaaaaannnnnn we kinda have to hear both sides on this one. I’ve definitely been on a date or two when I had to pull off one of Dave Chappelle’s best scenes, just counting down how much money I had left as the date went a long. So I can see how one would want to try to pull this off. This is just simply a case of a poorly executed plan by my man Barry….and you know he def at least pissed himself after getting tased…smh.
