Cancel Culture may try with Control, ALT, Delete, but the result remains the same: you can’t just erase Dave Chappelle. The comedian, who’s recently come under fire for jokes made in his new Netflix special, “The Closer,” is proving to be harder to cancel than a DIRECTV subscription.
“If this is what being canceled is like, I love it,” Chappelle said before a performance late last week, per The Hollywood Reporter.
Uncontroversial opinion, but Dave Chappelle is a genius. Just watched The Closer. Unbelievably funny, surprisingly moving and displays more courage and decency than all his critics combined.

Chappelle’s most recent verbal assault on the easily offended occurred in front of a sold-out crowd at Los Angeles’ famous Hollywood Bowl. Once on stage, Chappelle seemed anything but worried about the prospect of being “canceled.”
“I don’t know what to tell you, except I’m a bad motherf–ker,” said Chappelle, via Deadline.
With a series of A+ material and an arena full of raucous applause, Chappelle again found time to address those trying to shame him for making people laugh — or in other words, doing his job.
“F-ck Twitter. F-ck NBC News, ABC News, all these stupid ass networks,” said Chappelle, as reported by the Hollywood Reporter. “I’m not talking to them. I’m talking to you. This is real life.”
Somehow, a real life crowd of more than 18,000 fans left the Los Angeles arena without being offended.
