The comedy great’s ninth stand-up special—and sixth for Netflix—is his most incendiary, troubling, and unapologetic one yet https://t.co/6FW2ml64Xu— The Daily Beast (@thedailybeast) October 5, 2021
Didn't think Dave Chappelle could get any worse? You thought wrong! Let's dive right in...
In his new Netflix "comedy" special Closer, Dave had the following "funny" things to say:
"I don’t know if you heard on the news: I did get coronavirus—and it was something else...I couldn’t help but feel like, when I saw these brothers beating these Asians up, that’s probably what’s happening inside of my body." (cause east Asians being assaulted in record numbers was like his immune system fighting covid. Get it? HAHAAHAHHAHA)
"Any of you who have ever watched me know that I have never had a problem with transgender people...If you listen to what I'm saying, clearly, my problem has always been with white people." (Dave is apparently unaware that black trans people exist?)
"They canceled J.K. Rowling – my God. I'm Team TERF! I agree. I agree, man. Gender is a fact...Now, I am not saying that to say trans women aren’t women, I am just saying that those pussies that they got… you know what I mean? I’m not saying it’s not pussy, but it’s Beyond Pussy or Impossible Pussy. It tastes like pussy, but that’s not quite what it is, is it? That’s not blood. That’s beet juice." (Is there anything transphobic people love more than obsessing over and fantasizing about trans people's bodies?)
After pointing out that DaBaby had killed another man and still continued to perform and escaped punishment, but got “canceled” after making incredibly derogatory comments about gay people, Chappelle made the comparison direct. “Do you see where I’m going with this?” he quipped. “In our country, you can shoot and kill a n****r, but you better not hurt a gay person’s feelings!”
He also blames the death of his friend, trans activist Daphne Dorman, on the trans community by implying they bullied her into committing suicide because she defended Dave after one of his numerous other transphobic rants.
He then says he will no longer perform LGBTQ jokes "until we are both sure that we are laughing together. I'm telling you, it's done. I'm done talking about it (suuuuuuuuuuuuuuure you are, Dave). All I ask of your community, with all humility: Will you please stop punching down on my people?" (Presumably, "my people" refers to extremely wealthy, famous, homophobic, transphobic, cis-het black men?)
