Dave Chappelle says he'll meet with transgender critics, but he's 'not bending to anybody's demands'Weeks after his special 'The Closer' was criticized for its jokes aimed at transgender people, Dave Chappelle has addressed the controversy. Do they have a global leader? Seeing as you patronise them.. watch the special! CNN or have a mainly peaceful riot/tantrum! Don't forget 'cancel culture' is just modern twitter speak for 'people don't like you anymore'. There is no real cancel police coming for you, Dave. Everyone relax and go back to ignoring whatever hot-headed internet kids are venting about online. 💜 If people took issue with him they didn’t watch the special. They are only reading what’s on social media.
