Is Dave Chappelle being Hypocrite when talking about Political Correctness?
he talks about his desire to shoot any white man walking on his property.
he has many jokes about harming white people. I love chapelle. He’s great. But he’s also racist. Really racist imo. But I give him a pass
Do you think he legitimately wants to shoot someone based on their colour? Like I highly doubt it man. His jokes are racist though you can’t really deny it
You're joking, right? 80% of The Chappelle Show was caricatures of racial stereotypes. It was hilarious, but in no way abstract, or had any sort deeper meaning than just comic relief. Acting like somebody "doesn't get it", because of their skin color, and because they're laughing "too hard", is asinine. Comedians are supposed to break down these barriers; not reinforce them.
Calling out hypocrisy is kind of hypocritical isnt it? I thought it was understood that everyone pulls that shit and thats why its not really a big issue. Anyway, he doesnt hate and that is a big deal.
@DeJulez don’t waste your time. This is one of those things they won’t ever understand just due to they’re own ego and self perception based on how they were raised and the world they grew up in.
It’s best in my experience to just take a leaf from there own book and say “bless your heart” and leave it at tha
Is Dave a hypocrite? Yes, but no more than the rest of us. Neal Brennan actually pointed out that part of Chappelle Show was about exploring his own hypocrisy and insecurities during the Kennedy Center honors and Dave nodded in agreement.
I feel you're leaving out a lot of context. He was joking about meth addicts in his small town in rural Ohio breaking into his house. They would happen to be white, just like crack heads in D.C. breaking into his house would be black. He's made a lot of these types of jokes over the years. You're making it a lot more serious than it is.
dave wasn't getting respect it is actually admirable that he quit and left millions on the table to maintain his dignity and creative control. a lot of the other shill comedians would have continued degrading themselves and being the subject of ridicule and disrespect for the money,continued being puppets.
That's the fucking point of comedy you dreck
Walking away from a 50 million dollar deal when you don't like what how people are interpreting your work is not fucking political correctness. It's skin in the game.
I would point out, this is his version of events. so as in most cases, he sounds righteous and blameless.
that he had a massive falling out with Neal Brennan over it, indicates the tale he tells is at the very least a bit skewed.
TS needs to watch because he's sounds clueless
Did anyone ever laugh at Tracy Morgan to begin with?
The point of Comedy is to get Offended by White Men laughing? I thought it was just to make people laugh..... Dreck.
Already seen it.... What am I missing? Seems like a lot of you are so far up Dave's Ass you can't even be subjective about it.
Also for everyone saying he didn't leave Chappelle show because of the White guy laughing...….. That was the last thing he shot and said he needed a break. I guess that was just a coincidence? It wasn't but even then..... He got triggered enough by a white guy laughing he needed a break (Fact) is some serious Bitch level Snowflakery.
This is not a left/right issue here... I just don't like when people say things and do another. He wants to be Anti PC and talk about how everyone is so sensitive these days..... BUT HE NEEDED A BREAK BECAUSE A FUCKING WHITE GUY LAUGHED TOO HARD AT HIS OWN JOKES. It's ridiculous. I knew this thread was just gonna fill up with Pro Dave people that will white knight him no matter what but you don't have to be Anti Dave just to see the hypocrisy. I like Dave.... But he is a hypocrite.
Yes that's what I said lol
Probably. He's human ain't he
Dave is not funny anymore.
Dave hasnt been funny since he got buff.
