I agree. That's a pretty good assessment like some of the lgbt jokes were funny but it was like move on already... **** is starting to become a fixation.

I also noticed he shifted a towards more black identity politics to deflect from the lgbt criticism so he's definitely playing the game

He's pretty much always talked about race a lot. I think he fell off a while ago but lol.

Right? There's definitely other stuff out there I'd love to hear him make jokes about. I mean, there's plenty of other comedians making jokes about this stuff (Covid, Trump, Biden, Kanye West, Afghanistan, etc.), but none of those comedians are Dave Chappelle.

I don't know if deflection was his intention, but I did notice when he mentioned his trans friend - sounded a bit to me like the classic "But I have black friends!" retort to an accusation of racism.

Chapelle's long game is unmatched.

So he's using his dead trans friend to attack trans people?

I guess if you wanna put it that way? I think he thinks the online bullying contributed to her into suicide. So if anything he was attacking those people on Twitter...

It's essentially just the "I have a black friend" argument.

I don't think so lol... Unless your black friend was also bullied on Twitter and then killed themselves...

If you're called out for transphobia and later claim to have a trans friend who you use to turn the conversation away from you that's playing the black friend card. I don't know the situation well enough to be condemning Chappelle but when I see all of your responses I can't help but think that you wouldn't be so charitable to him if you weren't such a fan of his.
