Dave Chappelle: Homophobe!

Why isn’t anyone talking about this stuff? From the transcript:

“He pushed the button, didn’t he? He pushed the button. Punched the LBGTQ community, right in the AIDS.”

In the rest he makes it clear that he has a problem with white gay men. Apparently everyone else does as well, since no one is talking about this part.

Dear OP, please get some actual problems. Or scurry back to Twitter. Why is everyone obsessed and so scandalised by this guy? He’s not causing climate change, subverting democracy or responsible for the greed and corporate terrorism has that is destroying the world. I don’t care what he has to say. It’s just words coming out of a mouth. Grow up y’all.

That joke was a total dud, but I really don’t think he’s a homophobe. That’s probably the worst joke in the set, I can’t think of another that’s that bad. The rest of the show is golden.

I'm a gay male who happened watched the Netflix special. I had no issues with his ACT and it made me laugh after a really shitty day. There are serious issues in this world that need to be dealt with. Dave Chappelle isn't one of them. Some people are so incredibly sensitive anymore. Put your big girl panties on (oh, I just cancelled myself).

by Anonymousreply 3October 22, 2021 4:06 PM

I think that someone of you are afraid to admit that this offensive because you want to appear masculine. He says that he prefers “old school gays”, in other words, when gay men had to hide, and were second class citizens. Is this what you want? Sounds like you have some issues with self-hatred.

This is a gossip board, so if people like r1 and r3 are going to demand we only care about serious issues in this world and not frivolous stuff like this, I have to wonder WHY they're even here.

Of course, they don't really think we should ignore all frivolous things, they're just saying that as a knee-jerk reaction to defend Chappelle.

The bottom line is that people are tired of the faux edgy comics who say things like Chappelle does. It's outdated and he just sounds like a Boomer crank, which he is.

It's not about "cancelling," because this guy has millions upon millions of dollars, he's friends with Elon Musk, Netflix will defend him to the ends of the earth, and he has a built-in fanbase of people like you who love to laugh at homophobic, sexist, angry old rich crank jokes at the end of a long day trimming petunias or whatever it is you do.

So why don't YOU put on your big girl panties and learn to just fucking DEAL with it when someone points out that sometimes some celebrities suck?

Actually, what people are tired of is “cancel culture” and this new fear that people have of making jokes because they might offend *someone* *somewhere*.

You also misunderstood what Chappelle meant by “old school gays”. He meant the type who weren’t “he/him” Twitter activists, offended at everything.

Whatever, OP. Go ahead and be offended. But you’re not going to change the minds of anyone who isn’t hurt by this special. My gay boyfriend (who is HIV+, by the way) and I laughed our gay asses off at this special.

Comedians are holy fools with Tourette's and their own damage who have the permission of the audience to say anything. So long as it is funny. "Funny" requires a complex combination of rightness that counters the "wrongness" of what's said.

I'm gay and I'm not offended, but I'm confused about his motives and intention. Chapelle feels like he's just flailing at times. And, with Sarah Silverman's courage in mind, I can share that he raped me. Right on his mama's see-ment cellar floor. And then he wanted me to fuck him. I didn't. He's not my type.

You can be completely against cancel culture AND find Chapelle offensive. Doesn’t mean he should be cancelled or censored, but it is fine to acknowledge that his gay obsession is bizarre and not funny.

It’s becoming weirdly the reverse - if you criticize him - then suddenly you’re the one cancelled and accused of being humorless and a pussy and pathetic. How did THAT happen? He is standing up there making AIDS jokes and talking about how much homos love the taste of dick and most of datalounge think that frat boy shit is hilarious and starts hissing at everyone else to put their big boy pants on? Jesus Christ (MARY!!! I know).

I watched the entire special and thought it was shitty. Mocking and insulting other minorities while never saying a word about straight white men (who actually run everything) is bullshit. I don’t care about the trans shit if we are being honest, but I just felt like the gay jokes were stuff you would hear from nasty high school boys.

The poster who said this cancel culture SJW nonsense is rooted in religion is absolutely correct. Younger generations are not religious, so this mindset is the replacement.

One thing I find hilarious is that Dave said nothing that hasn't been said on here a million times. The old school gays thing is classic DL. The sad truth is is that everyone is way too sensitive these days. And I know some white gays hate it, but you all know it's true. You act like a minority until it's no longer convenient to be a minority. It's like black people and code switching. White gays are constantly in and out of both worlds, when it's convenient. There is nothing wrong with doing what you need to do to make it through the day, just don't get pissed when someone wants to talk about it.

R40, wokeism doesn’t threaten democracy, but it is a major cultural issue. I would say it’s THE major cultural issue. No, not racism, not sexism or homophobia or (god help us) transphobia, but the hypercorrection in response to those issues. Not only is it ruining popular culture but it’s just worsening the divide between the left and the center-left/center/center-right.

by Anonymousreply 42October 23, 2021 3:17 AM

R42 I don't completely disagree, but I don't fully agree either. Sure, the woke stuff is annoying as hell, often misguided, and yes, has an almost religious fundamentalist mindset aspect to it (I've pointed that out here before)...but I don't believe it's the "THE" cultural issue at the moment, or what's really at the center of it all. I think it feels that way because the right (and libertarians, pundits, media personalities, etc.) have quite brilliantly made it into a very effective boogeyman that they can pull out any time they want to shape/change/shift the conversation from what is really going on, deflect criticism, etc.

by Anonymousreply 43October 23, 2021 3:35 AM

R43, I almost completely ignore what the right has to say about wokeism. The only complaints I’m really even familiar with are the ones coming from classic liberals like me. You know, heretics.

I imagine the right is using it as a cultural wedge issue to drum up outrage in their base and get them to the polls. And yes, it makes sense that they’d lean into that, along with abortion, so that their voters don’t notice (and they never do!) that conservative politicians exist to keep themselves rich. Same old.

But it really is a problem. It’s the one thing Democrats are getting very wrong. Frankly, it plays right into Republicans’ hands.

I know it’s not the biggest problem in the country right now, but I’d say it’s the biggest *cultural* problem. Separate from economics, climate, health care, of course.

Being awake is not a bad thing. Wanting and working for social justice is not wrong. The problem, as it usually is in matters such as this, is the execution. Woke should be about moving forward; learning from the mistakes of the past so they don't get repeated. Being woke shouldn't mean washing away the past or being triggered by the ugly parts of it or shaming people for things that were done before any of us knew any better, it means mistakes were made and now our eyes are open so that we don't make those mistakes again.

OK Boomer. That guy is actually a comedian, his real name is Trey Crowder and he has been praised as one of the best new up and coming comedians by most of the people in the industry. But you probably wouldn't know that. He's broke the mold being from the south and being pro-gay, and very outspoken with his liberal view point. You just dont do that in southern red states. Chappelle is an old school racist anti-gay hater. He's rich, crusty, cranky and ingrained in society. By that definition he is not "edgy".

Comedians are only edgy when they are young and hungry and just starting out. Once they get to the point of making millions, they basically become formulaic and careful not to fuck up their career with their base. Pissing other people off is not the same as being edgy. If Chappelle was actually edgy HIS BASE would be the ones pissed off. He's just playing to them like Trump to Deplorables.

What the outrage mob is missing about this is the entire final 20 minutes of the special. He tells a very sweet and sad story about the trans comic he befriended, let open for him, then killed herself after being subjected to online bullying by the Twitter mob after publicly defending him.

It is very sad, empathetic, and human. I don’t expect that anyone complaining has actually WATCHED the special because with the outrage culture we live in right now, it’s all talking points and hysterics based on a few clips posted on Twitter.

We have no context, no empathy, no pragmatism, no understanding anymore because a very small subset of the population has gotten an enormous amount of power from being perpetually outraged about everything and trying to control the speech, thoughts, and perceptions of others.

Trans people really, really need to start looking inward to fix their issues. Because trying to change everyone else isn’t going to make them whole or happy.

If you start yelling and hissing that every statement about a black person that is not entirely positive is racist, sorry, but you can not be taken seriously.

R172, the story about the trans that killed itself over alleged "Twitter mob" bullying sounds like bs to me. From what I've read the so-called bullying was months apart from the suicide. This person likely had mental issues prior. He was an adult male over 40 years old, not some naive child who doesn't understand how the internet works. And the fact that they are blaming LGBT, that includes the L,G and the B for his death is infuriating. I'm not responsible for the death of some heterosexual transvestite, nobody is.

Not talking about Daphne? Fuck off. There were tons of comments in the other thread, including my own pointing out that a)Dave's story about Daphne was only ostensibly about Daphne. Mostly it was about Dave and what a great and definitely not transphobix guy Dave is. Just look at this tran he befriended! What a guy! How could anyone call him a transphobe after befriending this pathetic, unfunny tran? Some people on this thread need to google the "but I have a black friend" trope and understand why people make fun of it/use it as a way to ID racists.

Even y'alls are not "talking about" Daphne. You're just using her as proof your "edgy" idol (fucking LOL) isn't a transphobe.

And no, I don't want Dave cancelled. If someone gave me the power right now to take down the NF special I wouldn't. It's not my right or my job to decide what other people say or watch or find funny. I fully agree there are whole factions of the left who have gone counterproductively batshit insane (how many of those people are actually trans though, I wonder?). But this version of Dave Chappelle as edgy and brave? A 50 year old multi millionaire with an audience full of big stars and a $24m Netflix contract? Sorry, no. He used to be a lot edgier and a lot funnier (I've seen all his specials) and then he got successful. He also got old. It happens to the best of us, and if your getting old coincides with your getting rich, it's amazing how conservative and closed-minded some people can turn out to be.

If you're against him, criticize him, challenge him, make it hard for him but this trend toward silencing people - including run of the mill types like him - does more harm than dealing with him through challenge instead of crushing. I don't like the guy either, I don't think he's funny and I would be surprised if his career doesn't end in overdose or liver disease. But exile does more harm to our society than calling bullshit.

I hate that the gay community are being lumped in with the trans groups. I have issues with what he says about gay white men but I don't like people thinking all gay men agree with the trans groups 100%.

R294 R280 Maybe this is the problem: the Chapelle-haters have no sense of humor.

Oh Pluse R328, talk about snow flakes, if current day white comedians made millions doing a show that specifically targeting black people in a racist rant, you cunts would be screaming up and down to take him off the air, bend a knee and apologize. But when blacks say something homophobic, "oh, you just don't have a sense of humor". You don't see the hypocrisy in that?

R329 WTF are you talking about? I think part of the reason the trans community is piling on Chapelle is that he's black. He wouldn't be the first straight black man to be treated as though he personifies all homophobia and misogyny, conveniently taking the spotlight off straight white male homophobes and misogynists.

If you don't laugh every single time a gay person is "humorously" denigrated then you have no sense of humor.

Can someone explain R333 to me. Is it possible to have a reaction to that other than "OMG! PEARL CLUTCH! RACIST!" or "this is the most hilarious thing ever?" Like she's just saying racist things but the audience is supposed to understand she's not racist and it's a joke? How is that sophisticated or funny in any way? She's literally just saying what an actual racist comedian would have said in the Olden Days but now it's done in a knowing wink-wink-actually-I-don't-really-mean-this way and I don't understand how this is amusing or entertaining. It's boring.

Does she WANT people to start yelling that she's a racist so she can act all superior and imply that her audience is also superior for "getting" it? Because I feel like there's a lot of that going around in stand-up (wanting to be attacked by humourless people so one can present oneself as a brave edgelord) and Chappelle definitely isn't above it himself.

I posted that link R335, my friends took me to one of her shows. I posted that as a response to all the threads ere saying people cant take a joke. So it's OK when a black guy makes jokes about gays, or trans, we should get over it, but if a person plays the same game with people of color, suddenly it's not funny.

To answer your question, she is being ironic. She's saying all the shit racists would say. Think Archy Bunker from All in the Family. The thing I discovered was, I think most of the audience got it, and part of them did not. They really took it at face level. The show I saw was in Orange County CA. OH boy, they lived up to their reputation. She was making fun of every race, as well as gays. The audience was rip roaring laughing up a storm. Then she made a joke about Republicans...suddenly the room went silent. That's when I realized most of these fuckers were not in on the joke. Even the comedian was surprised how silent the room got.

Chappelle is kind of doing the same thing a decade later. He's not cutting edge. So if you tell people they are being snowflakes and cant take a joke, then shut up when people make the same kind of jokes when it comes to your ethnic group or sexual orientation that they are not a part of.

Thanks for the response, R336. I completely agree with you, fwiw. And at the same time as I find that kind of humour obvious and unfunny, I understand that the fact that so many people in the audience don't get it (i.e. that they don't understand their own hypocrisy being pointed out, they take the comedian at face value) kind of renders it relevant whether I personally enjoy it or not. I find Dave Chappelle to be very much one of those people who will strut and crow about cancel culture when it's a group that doesn't include him being joked about, and then get mad when it's a group that does include him. He seems very serious when he talks about gays not supporting black people, he doesn't seem to think that's funny (and I wonder how he would react if a white man used him as a 'but I have a black friend!' prop the way he uses his trans friend, who is no longer here to give her version of events).

Have you heard of the Pub Landlord? He's the comedy persona of UK comedian Al Murray and is very much used, in the UK, as the example of a person whose audience is at least in part composed of people who don't get that the joke it on them. Here I'll link a vid (and for those licking Dave's asshole in this thread, Stewart Lee's 10+ year old bit here is better than anything Dave Chappelle did in his latest special). (start at 1:45 if you want the direct comment on audience's not getting it)
