Dave Chappelle needs no introductions as far as being a stand-up comedian are concerned as his range of comedies and impeccable timing made him a huge success. Chappelle’s latest special on Netflix, called ‘The Closer,’ dropped on the streaming platform back on October 5th. It seems Kanye West had scathing words for those who want to Dave Chappelle.
The National Black Justice Coalition called on Netflix to remove Dave Chappelle’s special from the streaming platform for Chappelle’s harmful and transphobic remarks against the trans community.
Despite all the controversy, many have come to Dave Chappelle’s defense. This included trans comedian Flame Monroe as well. Recently, even Andrew Yang backed up Dave Chappelle. Even Bill Maher decided to defend Dave Chappelle recently.
While speaking on Drink Champs, Kanye West was asked about Dave Chappelle’s current controversy. Kanye West went on a huge rant, stating that he will smack anyone who tries to cancel Chappelle.
“Man, if they don’t get the f*ck up outta here, bro. Cancel what? What we cancelin’ out here? Man, enough of this sh*t already, boy! Y’all just wait until someone ain’t affecting the stock and you just take them out one by one to impose fear on anybody with freedom of thought. I smack the sh*t out you when I see—don’t tell me what the f*ck to do ever in your life, boy. None of y’all Hollywood plant-ass n***** tell none of us what we do. This our culture now. It’s up. You can’t cancel none of us.”
And all of y’all scared n***** that’s runnin’ around doing what these Hollywood n***** tellin’ you to do? F*ck y’all, man! It’s up! Y’all either is about our culture that we grew up about, or you about yourself. Selfish, scared-ass house n*****. So they cancelin’ what?!”
Dave Chappelle also made it clear he is unapologetic regarding his transphobic comments and that is unlikely to change anytime soon from the looks of it. The situation won’t change as long as people like Kanye West continue to support Chappelle either.
