Dave Chappelle‘s new Netflix special has been arousing a lot of controversy and hate from viewers. The comedian made fun of cancel culture in The Closer, and now viewers are pressuring Netflix to remove the special from the platform.
HBO’s Game of Thrones alum Kristian Nairn recently talked with TMZ about Chappelle’s jokes about the LGBTQ, and he doesn’t seem to think it’s funny at all. The Hodor actor said that while the jokes weren’t exactly trans or homophobic, the community isn’t really into them.
I just can’t understand why people can’t just let people live their lives and get on with it. Why is it such a big issue? It’s not in his life. I don’t get annoyed with things that don’t affect me. I mean I’m sure he’s a great guy and all that, but I just love in that levels how I try to live my life.
Nairn was asked by the TMZ photographer about why did Dave Chappelle make such jokes. He made the point that he doesn’t know Chappelle by his experiences, but everyone must learn to accept each other moving forward.
Again, I don’t know Dave Chappelle so I don’t know his experiences. But I just think as we move forward, we just need to be more accepting of each other. I just don’t think there’s any need to antagonize the situation than it already is.
Chappelle’s return to comedy happened in 2019, when he came back after his long time hiatus. His work with Comedy Central in creating and writing the Chappelle show as well as his career as a stand up has established him as one of the finest comedians ever.
