Famous comedian Dave Chapelle gets in trouble for his jokes once again! David Khari Chappelle is a stand-up comedian and actor from the United States. His satirical comedy sketch show – Chappelle’s Show is well renowned. The show continued until the comic left in the middle of the third season’s filming.

Dave Chappelle, the comedian, has been caught in a vicious circle of anti-cancel-culture standup humor for a number of years. Over the course of six Netflix specials, Dave Chappelle has defended himself against what he perceives as progressive attempts to have his explosive comedy canceled, all the while making fun of the queer and transgender communities and the Me Too movement and generally amplifying the offensive jokes and reactionary politics that sparked the initial backlash.

Again courting controversy, Dave Chappelle made comments that were viewed as homophobic and transphobic. When one of his gigs in Minneapolis had to be moved to a different location due to protests from the public, the problem recently had a snowball effect. The comic joined Chris Rock and Kevin Hart during a performance in New York City yesterday where he made a surprise appearance. This was due to following criticism from the public, a performance in Minneapolis had to be moved to a different location as he referred to the demonstrators as “transgender lunatics.”

Obviously, it does not take long for the famous cancel culture to catch up to the comic’s antics. Multiple tweets disregard his only defense which would be that all his jokes are just for the pure purpose of comedy. In contrast, other tweets address the virus and attempt to educate Twitter of all platforms about what it really does. Needless to say, connecting the LGBTQ+ community to an actual virus that harms people is not something that should be joked about.

Chappelle was attacked while performing at the Hollywood Bowl in May. According to a Page Six report, the spectator who assaulted him had a replica gun with a genuine knife inside of it. The attacker was identified as 23-year-old Isaiah Lee. As a part of the Netflix is a Joke event, Chappelle was giving a performance there. Some might call the comic brave while others may have other disheartening words for a description. In any case, he may have a lot to answer about if he even gets a chance to justify himself.
