Comedian Dave Chappelle roasted San Francisco during a show late last week at the Masonic over the city’s rapid decline caused by electing woke local officials.
Chappelle’s remarks were revealed in a SFGate report from Dan Gentile, who says that he went to the show and witnessed Chappelle’s “barrage of transphobic dog whistles.”
The report claimed that Chappelle’s comedy had taken “a dark turn toward transphobia” in recent years after he “he identified as TERF (trans-exclusionary radical feminist), declared that gender is an unmalleable fact and insinuated that the struggle for LGBTQ and Black rights are at odds.”
Chappelle’s “disdain for present-day San Francisco” was “crystal clear,” the report said.
On the subject of the rampant homelessness in the city, Chappelle reportedly asked, “What the f*** happened to this place?”
The report whined that Chappelle mocked a situation in which a homeless person defecated in front of a restaurant he was eating at in the Bay Area earlier in the week, claiming that Chappelle “has said plenty of irresponsible and dangerous things.”
The report complained that Chappelle had “insulated himself from criticism with a combination of incredible talent and incredible wealth” like Joe Rogan and Elon Musk.
The writer claimed that Chappelle’s jokes involving transgender individuals were “insensitive” and “just plain lazy” because, the writer claimed, Chappelle was “relying on tropes rather than the comedian’s incisive wit.”
The report noted that Chappelle repeatedly used the transgender community as a “punchline” throughout the performance and complained that “these dog whistles” had “spoiled” the night — even though the show was sold out and the “the amount of laughter in the room” proved otherwise.
Chappelle won a Grammy award earlier this year for best comedy album for his Netflix special “The Closer,” the show that sparked immense anger from leftists because he went after the transgender community.
Recording Academy CEO Harvey Mason Jr. attempted to quell any potential backlash from leftists over Chappelle winning the award by noting that viewers are responsible for picking the winners.
“If the voters feel like a creator deserves a nomination, they’re going to vote for them,” he said. “We’re never going to be in the business of deciding someone’s moral position or where we evaluate them to be on the scale of morality. I think our job is to evaluate the art and the quality of the art. We can make sure that all of our spaces are safe and people don’t feel threatened by anyone. But as far as the nominations or the awards, we really let the voters make that decision.”
