Backlash Over Dave Chappelle’s Netflix Special
Comedian Dave Chappelle tries to stir up controversy in his new Netflix special, but some are saying the stand-up goes too far.
The special ‘Sticks and Stones’ started streaming on Monday.
Chappelle tackles a ton of taboo topics, like school shootings, gun control and the opioid crisis.
He jokes about R. Kelly’s sexual assault allegations, he defends Kevin Hart’s past homophobic tweets, as well as Louis C.K.’s alleged sexual misconduct and even says he doesn’t believe Michael Jackson’s most recent accusers.
Chappelle also takes on cancel culture, saying people are too quick to be offended by what they see in the news and social media.
