Comedian Dave Chappelle slammed LGBT and women’s rights activists
Comedian Dave Chappelle attacked LGBT and women’s rights activists in a set on Friday.
Performing at the Cutting Room in New York Chappelle revealed his support for republican runner Donald Trump and criticised the opposition, Hillary Clinton.
According to the Observer, Chappelle made misguided comments about LGBT and women’s rights.
Speaking about activists, he said: “They should not be having that conversation in front of black people. You go ahead and feel something about your rights. But if you’re putting sexism and homophobia and transphobia in front of racism, you should be ashamed of yourself.”
Chappelle attacked the controversial bathroom bill, which restricts people from using the bathroom that aligns with their gender identity, and instead demands they use the bathroom of the sex they were assigned at birth.
“If you need to show your birth certificate to take a dump at a Wal-Mart in North Carolina, that’s insane,” he said.
Chappelle counteracted this as he said he would not want to use a urinal next to a “woman with a dick.”
The comedian went on to discuss the ‘pussy grabbing’ tapes that were leaked recently.
“What I heard on that tape was gross,” Chappelle said. “But the way I got to hear it was even more gross. You know that came directly from Hillary.”
Chappelle denied that Trump was talking about sexual assault. “Sexual assault? It wasn’t. ‘And when you’re a star, they let you do it.’ That phrase implies consent. I just don’t like the way the media twisted that whole thing. Nobody questioned it.”
He confirmed he would vote for Hillary Clinton despite supporting Trump. However, he felt his vote would be wasted and likened it to sleeping with Halle Berry and having her fart in his face.
“I’m still going to go for it, but I wish she hadn’t done that thing,” he said.
He went on to praise Trump’s “resilience” and demeanour during the second presidential debate.
“Something about this was backward,” Chappelle said. “A gay white man and a white woman asking a multibillionaire how he knows the system is rigged and insisting it’s not. Does that sound right to you? It didn’t seem right to me.
“And here’s how you know Trump is the most gangsta candidate ever. They asked him how he knows the system is rigged and he said, ‘Because I take advantage of it.’ He may as well have flashed his membership card for the Illuminati right then.”
