I don’t care if anyone watches or doesn’t watch Chappelle. I find the “Chappelle is being silenced!” crusade ridiculous though, since he clearly is not being silenced - his special is the first thing you see when you open Netflix.

Some people wrote articles or tweets critiquing the special, and these days anything less than full throated support is viewed as censorship.
Any different than SJW upticks being thrown in our face in the names of popular culture and advertising?

Sure like SNL and Jon Stewart. Lol

Chappelle did a great skit on SNL I believe with Chris Rock poking fun at liberals over their react to Trumps election. He is extremely funny and sounds very bright in his interviews. I could care less about the thrust of his show I enjoy his comedy, I don’t know why everything has to be either right or left.

I guess that's what you get for having "relations" with another woman while your wife is in labor.

This falls under "play stupid games, win stupid prizes."
Ah my bad, probably confusing him with another similar story.

That does remind me of the Steve Nash (NBA player - very white) who's wife gave birth to some decidedly darker babies leading to their divorce and the trading of one of his team-mates to another city.

I'm not going to fact check that to see if it's true. It's inflammatory and easily could have been checked with a paternity test, and not gossip.

No joke. He even goes as far as to claim if he was a pedophile, he would make sure McCullay Culkin was his first victim.

So, I take it, conservatives are okay with pedophilia being a joke, just as long as a Black comedian takes a jab at the homosexual communities?

Like, really, people think this guy is actually funny? I seen people try to compare him to George Carlin, and sorry, but George Carlin was genuinely funny and touched on real issues.

Oh, give me a break. Since when isn't comedy supposed to poke fun at people's sensitivities?

The left are simply ticked because Chappelle's observational comedy is [gasp!] aiming at the left's sacred cows. So now The Mob has started a Twitter campaign ordering audience members not to laugh at his jokes.

Yes, America, it didn't take long, either, for comedy critics to go from calling Chappelle "electrifying" and "brilliant" to, now, "disconcerting.

Get over it. Liberals have no monopoly on determining what's funny. And chuck the pedophilia gar-baghe.

Chris Rock once touched on charities in one of his routines, and noted that Jerry's Kids are still gimpin' around. And the crowd's uproarious laughter did NOT mean that they found childhood illnesses amusing. It's called obervational comedy for a reason.

Lay a guilt trip on someone else.

Chapelle fan here and I completely missed this so called controversy. I watched. This last special is less comedy and more social commentary with humor -- I know subtle -- but it is a difference. And it is in your face social commentary.

I didn't like every comment but I can appreciate where he is coming from.

So who turned the conservatives on to Chapelle -- he's been around for years... They should google his SNL commentary. Very enlightening.

Probably because the left is so against it. Funny thing, no Conservative recommended it to me. I ended up watching something on youtube, on how the left is in meltdown over it. After that I just had to watch it. I thought it was funny, not his best material but still funny. Offensive , no.

It’s almost identical to religious groups who would get outraged and try to demonize edgy comedy, movies, etc...when people take it too seriously and try to shame others, there’s an urge to push back. Those people are just asking to be trolled, because they’re so sensitive and easy to mess with.

I believe Rotten Tomatoes had the special at a very low rating by critics, and the audience rating was at 99% positive. That says a lot.
They will never get that they took the bait...So funny and predictable.

All y'all praising Chapelle defended Michelle Wolf's performance at the White House Correspondents Dinner a few years ago, right? I'm sure you did.

Rotten Tomato as of today's date -- Sept. 9/2019

79% per by critic (tomatoter) - 88 per cent of top critics.
90 per cent by audience
