Leftists have declared war on Dave Chappelle.
They don’t want him to be allowed in polite society ever again.
And Saturday Night Live writers did one shocking thing to Chappelle.
When Dave Chappelle was announced as the host for the most recent episode of Saturday Night Live, some on the far-left were livid.
The latest season has been slightly less “woke” in early episodes, even lampooning Joe Biden and the Democrats in a hilarious sketch.
However, Chappelle’s selection as guest host apparently triggered “woke” writers on the show to boycott his episode because of jokes about transgender people in two of his Netflix comedy specials, particularly in The Closer.
From Page Six:
“There’s unrest at 30 Rock…over the decision to sign up Dave Chappelle to host ‘Saturday Night Live’ this weekend. We’re told that some staff writers are so furious that the comedy superstar — who has made transphobic and homophobic jokes — has been chosen to helm the iconic show that they’re sitting out the episode. ‘They’re not going to do the show,’ an insider told Page Six. ‘But none of the actors are boycotting.’”
Far-left activists are narcissistic and deranged, but the behavior is tolerated by liberal executives who either agree with the activists, or are afraid to stand up to them.
In the past, when people refused to work for ridiculous reasons, they lost their jobs.
But the comedy writers in question, who are very replaceable, feel a sense of entitlement for a job that thousands of other comedy writers would take in a second.
Page Six added:
“Chappelle last hosted the sketch comedy show in 2020, well before Netflix released his 2021 special ‘The Closer.’ It angered some viewers because many of Chappelle’s jokes were aimed at the trans community…Chappelle was at 30 Rock on Tuesday meeting with writers and producers and his rep told us ‘there was no evidence of a boycott…The room was full of writers. They all pitched ideas and they seemed very excited about it…Dave is looking to have some fun.’”
Only one writer spoke publicly about the incident.
SNL writer Celeste Yim explained on Instagram, “I’m trans and non-binary. I use they/them pronouns. Transphobia is murder and it should be condemned.”
First, being both trans and non-binary seems nonsensical and self-defeating.
If one identifies as the opposite gender, how could that person also be non-binary?
But the left is where logic goes to die.
Secondly, it’s insulting to actual victims of violent crime to call “transphobia” murder, but that’s the type of apocalyptic language that activists use.
They believe that speech is violence, but actual violence is justified so long as the target is a political opponent.
Actual violence was when a left-wing nutcase attacked Chappelle onstage in Los Angeles during a comedy set.
The city was prepared to give the attacker a slap on the wrist, but it turned out that he was wanted for attempted murder on a separate charge.
These far-left activists are obnoxious, and if they don’t want to write on SNL because of Chappelle, then they should quit.
