The Left is not happy over comedy king Dave Chappelle’s politically incorrect transgender jokes.
Left-wing media critics lost their minds after the comedian kicked off a string of performances at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall, on Monday. After Vulture’s Jesse David Fox spat-out a negative report on Chappelle “unsuccessfully” tackling trans issues, all hell broke lose on the leftist blogosphere.
Chappelle was “saying more things for laughs at the expense of a population he clearly knows nothing about—and wants to keep knowing nothing about so he can use them for joke-fodder,” complained Jezebel.
The Advocate, too, was upset, saying the performance was “littered with transphobic jokes” and labeling the set “anti-trans.”
The Daily Dot was also unhappy, running the following headline: “Dave Chappelle opens Radio Music Hall set with 20 minutes of transphobic jokes.”
The comic genius was targeted by the Left months ago after telling what the Left deemed anti-gay and anti-trans jokes. But, clearly, this did not make Chappelle shy away from the issue. Here are the highlights of the trans-themed opening which triggered the Left, as reported by Fox via Jezebel (graphic language edited):
