Dave Chappele 

Reminder that DC has a wide platform, plenty of wealth and cultural sway, and he's using it to punch down on minorities struggling to exist, while painting himself as such a victim for being harshly criticized for his "jokes"

People can argue all they want about how he's trying to be better about the issues, but I am not obliged to give him the benefit of the doubt while he galvanized a genocidal anti-trans hate group. He's also not entitled to our viewership.

Also, and this applies to all comedians. If you have to punch down to make a joke, you're unfunny and don't deserve a career in comedy.

Come back when you find better material.
