Of course Dave Chapelle cracks a bunch of passé gay jokes in his latest comedy special

Dave Chappelle just released a new Netflix comedy special and–surprise!–he’s once again cracking passé jokes about the LGBTQ community. Just like he did in his last comedy special. And the one before that. And the one before that. Because, evidently, being gay is hilarious.

In his new special Sticks & Stones, Chappelle says there’s an “unwritten and unspoken rule” in Hollywood that states “you are never, ever allowed to upset the ‘alphabet people,’” meaning LGBTQ people, during a defense of comedian Kevin Hart. (Yes, Chappelle is still talking about Kevin Hart.)

He also talks about how trans people “hate my f*cking guts, and I don’t blame them” because “I can’t stop writing jokes” about them.

Some of Chappelle’s past “jokes” about trans people include dead-naming Bruce Jenner, being outraged over having to refer to a trans woman as “she,” and comparing gender reassignment surgery to him and his friend going to the hospital and “having our dicks cut off.”

In Sticks & Stones, he compares being trans to a Chinese person trapped inside a Black man’s body, which naturally includes a racist impression of a Chinese person.

Other “jokes” Chappelle cracks include calling a rape survivor a “bitch” and accusing children molested by Michael Jackson of being liars then saying they should be grateful their first time was with the King of Pop.

As usual, many on Twitter don’t find Chappelle’s outdated brand of comedy very funny…

And then there are those who don’t see anything wrong with it…

In a scathing review titled “You Can Definitely Skip Dave Chappelle’s New Netflix Special” and published by Vice, Taylor Hosking writes: “His approach comes off like a defiant rejection of change at any cost.”

“As he keeps going down this path, drawing attention to the worst aspects of his important career, the biggest cost will be tarnishing his own legacy,” Hosking says.

What do you think? Is it time for Chappelle to evolve his brand of comedy? Or are homophobic and transphobic jokes still funny in 2019? Share your opinions in the comments section below…
