Dave Chappelle is facing huge backlash from LGBTQ+ community over jokes he made during his 6th and probably final standup special for Netflix’s show called, “The Closer” which was held in Detroit.
One of the greatest comedians is being criticized for seemingly doubling down on comments he made about the transgender community in his previous special which was titled “Sticks & Stones,” and he is showing no signs of contrition since prominent LGBTQ+ organizations have spoken out against him and entire Netflix company for giving him a platform to talk and make jokes about sensitive topics.
Dave touched lots of controversial themes, including defending DaBaby, J.K. Rowling and her statement that ‘gender is a fact’ which, actually, is a fact.
He also made few jokes about Caitlyn Jenner and that’s where the Eminem mention comes into the play: “Caitlyn Jenner was voted WOMAN OF THE YEAR. Her first year as a woman. She is better than every bi**ch in Detroit. Ain’t that something? Maybe he even had a period. Ain’t that something? I’d be mad a s**t if I was a woman. If I was at BET Award sitting there and they announce like ‘Award for The Ni**er of the Year goes to: EMINEM.’ My man!”
