Forget cancelling provocateur Chappelle… it’s the black celebrities who disgrace their own race who REALLY deserve our ire

Instead of targeting comedy genius Dave Chappelle, we should be reserving our contempt for those black stars who diss their own people by perpetuating commonly held stereotypes while unapologetically sucking up to the ‘man’.

Dave Chappelle. Don’t you just love him? I mean, hate him? I mean, love to hate him…? Whatever. While debate still rages over whether the self-proclaimed “transphobic comedian” deserves to be persona non grata for making squillions of dollars out of telling jokes that some people may find offensive, Netflix has suspended a lowly trans employee who tweeted that Chappelle’s latest special, ‘The Closer’ was an “attack” that pitted “us [the trans community] against other marginalized groups.” Oh, dear.

Meanwhile, the 46-year-old joker, having already doubled down on his gags about LGBTQ people, trebled down on the ever-growing ‘translash’ against him, after receiving a fireworks entrance and a standing ovation at a screening of his untitled documentary at the Hollywood Bowl last Thursday. “If this is what being cancelled is like, I love it,” he yelled at the packed LA arena. Quit that, ‘Dear White People’ showrunner Jaclyn Moore!
