Dave Chappelle is no stranger to controversy, where by controversy I mean “trannies mad.” I’ve only written about him once, when his “friend” Patton Oswald, a real soyboy looking motherfucker, stabbed him in the back and called him a big meanie for his trannyphobia. I guess that’s what you get for being friends with a guy who looks like a cartoon character, and not in a good way.
Chappelle was recently invited to do the opening monologue for Saturday Night Live. This is a “comedy” show that hasn’t produced anything that made even the slightest bit of cultural impact in the past five years, let alone anything funny, so it was already a big deal that they got an actual comedian on the show. Even more so in the recent climate of YeGate.
Dave Chappelle: Before I start tonight I just wanted to read a brief statement that I have prepared.
“I denounce anti-semitism in all its forms”
“and I stand by my friends in the jewish community.”
And that, Kanye, is how you buy yourself some time.
The entire bit is hilarious, and well worth watching. I’ve never been a huge Dave Chappelle fan, but he does have some great bits.
[Kanye] broke the showbusiness rules. The rules of perception. If they’re Black, that’s a gang. If they’re Italian, that’s the mafia. And if they’re Jews, that’s a coincidence, and you should never speak about it.
Kanye fucked up so bad Kyrie Irving got in trouble.
I’m not going to pretend that Dave Chappelle went 1488 IMPALE THE KIKES. He did a totally normal routine that was in good taste. You’d have to be a real nutcase to be mad about –
Nevermind, Jonathan Greenblatt Big Mad.
We shouldn’t expect @DaveChappelle to serve as society’s moral compass, but disturbing to see @nbcsnl not just normalize but popularize #antisemitism. Why are Jewish sensitivities denied or diminished at almost every turn? Why does our trauma trigger applause?
Jew sensibilities?! Who gives a fuck about that?
Woke staff writers for the not-ready-for-primetime Saturday Night Live are boycotting the show this week over the decision to have comedian Dave Chappelle host the show.
“I’m trans and non-binary,” said SNL writer Celeste Yim, who goes by “celestrogen,” on Instagram. “I use they/them pronouns. Transphobia is murder and it should be condemned.” Vulture wrote that comedy writer Yim “wants to make you feel big feelings.”
I was actually joking about Dave Chappelle being a controversial guest on SNL, but apparently I was right. I have understimated ClownWorld, and not for the last time.
