After my commentary about Dave Chappelle's turn on Saturday Night Live, a flood of hateful and personal invective erupted. But what do they think the job of a critic is?
The show was suddenly moved to another venue. Chappelle has received criticism over the last few years for his jokes aimed at the LGBTQ community, particularly transgender people.
23-year-old Isaiah Lee has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon.
The incident comes months after Chappelle faced controversy over his 2021 Netflix special The Closer, in which he makes jokes about transgender women.
In a video posted on Instagram, the comedian responds to backlash over his Netflix comedy special.
Dave Chappelle drew sold-out crowds to his live, indoor appearances in Washington, D.C. — 3,500 attended his show at the concert venue The Anthem and more than 2,000 came to the Kennedy Center.
The comedian said he was snared in an unfair contract years ago, which allows Comedy Central to profit off the show without compensating him.
Sarah Silverman, Tiffany Haddish and Jon Stewart were among the comedians who honored Chappelle as he received the annual American humor award in a music-filled ceremony at the Kennedy Center.
