"I also have never in my life said the words 'too hot for tv,' because, Bitch, that's not how I sound," Hampton tweeted.

It looks like "Surviving R. Kelly" director Dream Hampton didn't find it very funny when Dave Chappelle made a joke about her in his latest Netflix stand-up special "Sticks & Stones."

Hampton took to Twitter Tuesday, accusing Chappelle of misquoting her after he claimed that Hampton misquoted him in his special. And it all had to do with whether or not Hampton reached out to Chappelle to appear in the R. Kelly documentary, which aired at the beginning of this year.

According to Chappelle, Hampton had asked him before a performance in Detroit if he would want to appear in the Lifetime series. The comedian said he responded with, "'Nah, bitch, I'm cool," and then "just forgot about this shit."

However, when "Surviving R. Kelly" premiered two years later, Chappelle said Hampton not only dropped his name multiple times while promoting the project but also misquoted what he said about it.

"Dream's promoting the shit and she keeps bringing me up," he said in the special. "She said, 'I asked Dave Chappelle to be in my documentary, and he said it was too hot for TV.' Bitch, I did not say that. That does not even sound like how I talk."

Hampton then slammed Chappelle on Twitter and gave her followers a "quick fact check" about the actor's claims. According to the producer, she never asked the comedian to be apart of the docu-series.

"Quick fact check: I didn't personally (or casually) invite Chappelle to be interviewed for the doc," Hampton tweeted. "The producer responsible for celeb outreach officially asked him, more than once. I haven't seen or talked to him in about 8 years. Weird he told his joke that way."

"Also, obviously, didn't need Chapelle [sic] to talk about R. Kelly personally," she continued in another tweet. "I wanted him to talk about the two pieces of cultural criticism he produced about R. Kelly for the Chapelle [sic] show."

Hampton then directly hit back at Chappelle's joke where he said Hampton expressed that he was "too hot for TV."

"I also have never in my life said the words 'too hot for tv,' because, Bitch, that's not how I sound," she tweeted.
