It sounds like Dave Chappelle doesn't have a sense of humor when it comes to audience feedback.

The 40-year-old funnyman walked off stage during last night's Funny or Die Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival in Hartford, Conn., after being heckled by some audience members.

Chappelle's onstage tantrum occurred during his standup set. Over a mixture of fan cheers and boos, Chappelle said to the audience, "Thank you. Good night," before setting down the mic and finishing his set. He simply walked off stage to Kanye West's song "New Slaves" as the applause faded and most of the crowd booed his untimely finish.

Comedian Patton Oswalt tweeted of the incident, "Dear Dave Chappelle's fans: He's one of the best comedians working, & you're not letting him do what he loves. Stop being a--holes."

He followed up with, "Chappelle's touring now, trying to do his usual, brilliant stuff, and the crowds are screaming, ‘I'm Rick James, bitch!' Idiots."

The Oddball festival also tweeted about the heckling, writing, "Hey Hartford! Pipe down and let Dave Chappelle do his thing!"
