Dave Chappelle’s Attacker Says He Was ‘Triggered’ By LGBTQ+ Jokes, Suspect Also Hit With Attempted Murder Charge For Stabbing Roommate

The man who attacked Dave Chappelle onstage at The Hollywood Bowl is speaking out from behind bars, sharing the reason why he decided to rush the stage. Deets on why he did it, plus what the suspect did to his roommate that earned him an attempted murder charge inside….

The Los Angeles man who rushed the stage while comedian Dave Chappelle performed earlier this month is speaking out from behind bars.

Isaiah Lee, 23, opened up about the incident in a new interview with The New York Post to share why he rushed the stage and what Dave told him backstage after getting beatdown by security. Speaking from the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles, Isaiah said he was “triggered” by the comedian’s LGBTQ+ jokes, but insisted he never wanted to hurt him.

“I identify as bisexual … and I wanted him to know what he said was triggering,” Isaiah – who had a sling on his broken right arm – told The Post. “I wanted him to know that next time, he should consider first running his material by people it could affect.”

As you know, Dave and the trans community have been "beefin" where some folks have even tried to cancel him over jokes he told – that were dubbed transphobic – in his Netflix special “The Closer.” Isaiah said he expected to have a “good time” at the “Netflix Is A Joke” show on May 3rd, but he became angry as Dave joked about his prior drama with the LGBTQ+ community and as well as homelessness.

“I’m also a single dad and my son is 5,” Isaiah, who admitted he dealt with homelessness, said. “It’s a struggle and I wanted Dave Chappelle to know it’s not a joke.”

It seems jokes made about pedophilia earlier in the night (made by another comedian) helped push him over the edge as well. He revealed he was sexually abused as a minor.

Isaiah stormed the stage while carrying a folding knife attached to a fake replica gun. After knocking the comedian down, Dave’s security dragged him backstage and gave him one hell of a beatdown. The incident was caught on camera and instantly went viral. Also, videos of Isaiah’s broken arm and busted up face became a viral meme following the attack.

Right after the attack, Chappelle joked he was tackled by a “trans man.” Backstage, Dave asked Isaiah why he did it.

“I told him my mother and grandmother, who fought for his civil rights to be able to speak, would be upset at the things he said," Isaiah told The Post.

”Now your story will die with you, son,” Dave reportedly responded to him backstage.

“But he’s wrong,” Isaiah told The Post. “I’m sitting here talking to you about it.”

The 23-year-old talked about the vicious beatdown he endured after tackling the comedian.

“They spat on me and twisted me as if on purpose,” he said of the security guards who left him with a broken arm and two black eyes.

When asked about reports that he suffers from mental health issues, in which he said they were “wrong” and “inaccurate.” However, his lawyer said he is receiving mental health services.

The police charged Isaiah with misdemeanor counts of battery, possession of a weapon with intent to assault, unauthorized access to the stage area during a performance, and commission of an act that delays the event or interferes with the performer. If he’s convicted, Isaiah faces up to 1½ years in jail and a $4,000 fine.

Get this…

Isaiah raps and even made a song about Dave Chappelle. Take a listen above.

The Dave Chappelle stage rush is the least of Isaiah’s problems as he has been getting into some ish lately.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón charged Isaiah with attempted murder for allegedly stabbing his roommate in December. On December 2nd, Isaiah got into a fight with his roommate at a transitional housing apartment. As a result of media reports about the Chappelle case, the victim recently identified Isaiah as the person who committed the assault he had previously reported to police.

“The publicity generated by the attack on Mr. Chappelle helped police solve this crime,” said District Attorney Gascón. “The incident that occurred at the Hollywood Bowl was misdemeanor conduct and rightfully referred to the City Attorney’s Office. Based on the nature and severity of the December attack, Mr. Lee is now facing felony charges which my office will prosecute.”

Isiah pleaded not guilty to the attempted murder charge and is scheduled to return to court on June 2nd.

Looks like he’ll be sitting behind bars for a while now.

DAVE CHAPPELLE SPEAKS OUT After Getting Attacked By A ‘Fan’ With A Weapon On Hollywood Bowl Stage, Attacker Stomped Out, Chris Rock’s Wild Reaction!

Dave Chappelle was attacked on stage last night by an audience member with a weapon, and now he’s speaking out about the insane situation.  Everything inside!

Lordt!  We surely hope this isn’t a trend now.

While Dave Chappelle was on stage during his Netflix Is A Joke Festival’s "Dave Chappelle & Friends" show last night at the Hollywood Bowl, someone from the audience ran on stage to attack him.

It was all caught on camera phone video, despite it being a "phone-free experience", and the audience full of celebs and thousands of fans sounded shocked and confused by what was going down. 

It all started when Dave took the stage to introduce his friends like Mos Def, and then ish started going awry.  Some reports state the attacker had a gun, while others state he had a knife.  Now, based on newly released images from LAPD, we know it was BOTH!  And it’s unclear how he got this through metal detectors:

As soon as security swooped in and took dude down, Chris Rock came from backstage and took the mic saying, "Was that Will Smith?!"  Oop!

According to reports, the attacker is a 140lb, 5ft 11, 23-year-old male named Isaiah Lee.  He was arrested by LAPD and charged with assault with a deadly weapon.

Apparently, he was also beat down by security (and maybe Dave himself and Jamie Foxx) backstage, so he was taken away on a stretcher as he was arrested:

Sheesh.

 

 

While it remains unconfirmed what Lee’s motives were, Dave continued joking afterwards saying: ‘It was a trans man’, referencing his beef with LGBTQ community after last year’s Sticks & Stones comedy special where many felt his jokes were an insult to the community as a whole. We’re sure that little quip won’t sit well either.

 

Jamie Foxx ended up on stage cracking jokes with him afterwards too. 

Foxx said: ‘I thought that was part of the show, I didn’t know what the f***…’

Chappelle said: ‘I grabbed the back of that n**** head. His hair was spongy. Absorbent.’

Foxx added: ‘Listen, I just want to say, this man is an absolute genius. We’ve got to make sure we protect him at all times.

‘For every comedian who comes out here, this means everything. You’re a genius. You’re a legend, I enjoyed myself thoroughly, and we’re not going to let nothing happen to you.’

Chappelle said: ‘I’ve been doing this for 35 years. I just stomped a n**** backstage. I’ve always wanted to do that.’

 

Dave’s spokesperson issued a statement today on his behalf saying:

 

 

‘Dave Chappelle celebrated four nights of comedy and music, setting record-breaking sales for a comedian at the Hollywood Bowl… he refuses to allow last night’s incident to overshadow the magic of this historic moment,’ a spokesperson said.

‘As unfortunate and unsettling as the incident was, Chappelle went on with the show.’

 

The chaos of the night doesn’t end there.  TMZ reports this Isaiah person made a rap song about Dave Chappelle recently and put it on Soundcloud.  Gotta beware of those Soundcloud rappers.  His brother also told Rolling Stone that he has mental health problems and allegedly has some connection to the trans community, but it’s not clear what that is.

Stay safe out there, y’all!

Chris Paul Honored With Inaugural Kobe & GiGi Bryant WNBA Advocacy Award At 2022 NBA All-Star Game

Chris Paul is not just an NBA player. He’s also an advocate for others both on and off the court. Last night, he was honored with the WNBA’s inaugural Kobe & GiGi Bryant Advocacy Award for way he champions women and young girls who love basketball.

Watch him get awarded, plus more from the Big Game inside…

 

Chris Paul is more than just a basetball player. Year after year, we learn how he uses his platform and resources for the advancement of others, whether he’s dropping thousands for a charity or helping to raise awareness to a cause.

During the 2022 NBA All-Star Game in Cleveland Ohio, the Phoenix Suns point guard (who played on Team LeBron) was recognized with an incredible honor. The 12-time All-Star guard was named the inaugural recipient of the Kobe & Gigi Bryant WNBA Advocacy Award for his significant contributions to the advancement of girls’ and women’s basketball, and advocacy for the WNBA.

Vanessa Bryant – Kobe’s widow – presented Chris Paul with the award during Sunday’s game, which he accepted alongside his daughter Camryn Paul. The Kobe and Gigi Bryant WNBA Advocacy award aims to honor advocates and influencers who use their time, talent, and platform to raise awareness for the WNBA, and women’s and girls’ basketball in various ways, like Kobe was so committed to doing.

The NBA vet has demonstrated a unique level of support of the WNBA, attending games throughout the regular season and playoffs while also using his public platforms to highlight the on-court successes and stories of WNBA players as well as their leadership in the community through their fight for social justice. Paul was among several NBA stars that donned a WNBA player’s jersey to amplify the historic significance of the league’s 25th season. Additionally, Paul teamed up with Suns center Deandre Ayton to support the Mercury’s recent WNBA Finals playoff run.

“I have seen first-hand Chris’ appreciation of the WNBA and the game at every level for women and girls, especially in Phoenix and North Carolina, and his ardent support of our game strongly reflects the legacy of Kobe and Gigi,” said WNBA Commissioner Cathy Engelbert. “The league is proud to name Chris as the inaugural recipient of the Kobe & Gigi Bryant WNBA Advocacy Award, as he serves as a leader and role model for other professional athletes around growing the future of the game for young girls and all fans.”

For all the women hooping today, paving the way and serving as role models to the next generation… all we can do as men is show up
to support them in any way we can!! Thank you @wnba @vanessabryant (2/2)

— Chris Paul (@CP3) February 21, 2022

”This games means so much to me and my family… to receive this award is an absolute honor. My daughter recently started hooping and while I’m excited for her, I’m most excited for the future of the sport,” CP3 wrote on social media. “For all the women hooping today, paving the way and serving as role models to the next generation… all we can do as men is show up to support them in any way we can!! Thank you @wnba @vanessabryant."

CELEBRATING 75 YEARS OF THE NBA: 2022 ALL-STAR WEEKEND

Dave Chappelle – Boo’d & Called A ‘Bigot’ During Q&A With Students At High School Alma Mater, Dave Didn’t Back Down

 

Students at Dave Chappelle’s high school alma mater voiced how they felt about the comedian amid controversy surrounding his Netflix special. They didn’t hold back or mince words when vocalizing their true feelings to the comedian. And he didn’t back down in his responses.

Here’s what went down…

 

On Tuesday (Nov. 23rd), Dave Chappelle made a “surprise” visit to his alma mater, D.C.’s Duke Ellington School of the Arts for an hourlong Q&A session amid controversy surrounding LGBTQ+ jokes he made in his Netflix special, “The Closer.”

Politico reported it was a surprise visit, however, it was previously reported Dave Chappelle had planned on hosting a fundraiser at the school on Nov. 23rd. Deadline reported it was postponed due to a threat of a student walkout because students voiced they were uncomfortable with the comedian’s remarks about trans people.

The fundraiser was moved to April, so his appearance was a surprise in a sense.

With a camera crew in tow, Chappelle took the stage in front of 580 students where he was met with a mixture of cheers AND some boos. The session reportedly went south from there. Yikes.

By the way, the students had to lock their phones in special pouches beforehand to prevent recordings. As with many of his live shows, he has the audience members’ phones confiscated.

About eight students out of the 580 students in attendance asked questions. They weren’t only asking questions. They also shared exactly how they felt about the famed comedian.

One student stepped up to the microphone and called him a “bigot” adding, “I’m 16 and I think you’re childish, you handled it like a child." The student was reacting to the way Chappelle handled the backlash he received over the LGBTQ+ jokes he told in “The Closer.”

“My friend, with all due respect, I don’t believe you could make one of the decisions I have to make on a given day,” he responded, according to two anonymous students who spoke with Politico.

Politico shared more of what happened and Chappelle didn’t back down to the negative comments made by the students:

In response to another antagonistic question, Chappelle roughly told the student body of artists: “I’m better than every instrumentalist, artist, no matter what art you do in this school, right now, I’m better than all of you. I’m sure that will change. I’m sure you’ll be household names soon.”

The students recalled that another student in the audience shouted at him, “Your comedy kills,” and Chappelle shot back, “N—— are killed every day.” He then asked, “The media’s not here, right?”

ONE DISTURBED PARENT: The two students we spoke to declined to go on the record out of fear of retribution from the school. The father of one of the students, who also declined to speak publicly to protect the identity of his daughter, said, “As a parent, I have to say I have a real problem. … He was being dead serious and using the n-word on the record. What kind of judgment is the school showing to allow that?”

It’s reported many of the students declined to speak up in fear of how he would react.

The two students who spoke to Playbook said they were afraid to speak up at the assembly because Chappelle often laughed at students’ questions or responded with jokes. At one point, after a student left the assembly room, Chappelle singled her out by saying, “Of course she left early.”

Some students were equally put off by Chappelle.

“He could tell we were nervous,” said one of the students we spoke with. “It was a huge power imbalance of this grown man and his camera crew — and these 14- to 18 year-olds without their phones, just high school kids.”

 

They’re children, Roland.

— Jamilah Lemieux (@JamilahLemieux) November 25, 2021

 

Savannah Overton – a spokesperson for the school – told Politico the comedian “invited the voices of discontent to ask questions, however as a result, the supporters of Chappelle became the silent majority. Our principal was approached by several students after the assembly who were disappointed that they were not able to voice their support for Chappelle in this forum.”

Carla Sims, Chappelle’s spokesperson, confirmed the comments.

Towards the end of the Q&A, it was said Chappelle seemed to “soften up as he wound down.”

"This is my family and whether they know it or not I love these kids. … I don’t want to hear about any threats to these kids. These kids don’t deserve that,” Chappelle said.

Some of the students have been receiving death threats for protesting the comedian. The school responded to the threats by increasing security and barring students from leaving campus for lunch. Before wrapping up, Chappelle gave the students tickets to a screening of his documentary "Untitled." He paid for 600 Thanksgiving meals for students and staff.

Over the years, Chapelle has donated millions of dollars to the school. He even gave one of his EMMY awards to the students and gave the school a shoutout during his acceptance speech.

A theater at the school is set to be named after the comedian in his honor. The naming was postponed due to the students pushback. However, the school claims it was postponed in order to address community concerns and to create a “teachable moment” around artistic freedom and responsibility. 

The theater will still be named for Dave Chappelle in April.

Dave Chappelle & POTUS Obama Inducts Jay-Z In Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame + Hov Gives Dame Dash A Shoutout During Speech

Of course, heavyhitters like Dave Chappelle and Barack Obama were chosen to induct Jay-Z into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2021. Watch Hov get his flowers, plus peep the shoutout he gave his former business partner Dame Dash inside…

 

"He is ours. He is Hip-Hop. Forever," and ever, and a day. Dave Chappelle said as he honored Jay-Z at the 2021 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame ceremony in Cleveland, Ohio.

The famed comedian is a long time fan of the Hip Hop legend, so it was only right he helped induct the Hip Hop legend into the prestigious Hall.

“I would like to apologize to…Nah, I’m just f*ckin’ with ya,” Dave joked, seemingly poking fun at the "cancel" drama surrounding him over jokes he made in his Netflix special "The Closer," which pissed off the trans community.

“He is going to show us how far we can go if we can just get ahold of the opportunity,” Ohio native Dave Chappelle said about Jay-Z Saturday at the Rock Hall induction. “He has his people’s heart…We love him more than you can ever recognize him for.” https://t.co/2mYvPgtHwT pic.twitter.com/PscTPbxkIk

— clevelanddotcom (@clevelanddotcom) October 31, 2021

“I need everybody in rock and roll to know, that even though you are honoring him, he is ours,” Chappelle continued. “You embody Black excellence," Chappelle said to Hov.

 

The famed comedian gave a profound speech, sharing how much of an impact he has been to the culture. 

“I can sit up here tonight and talk about his acumen as a businessman. I can talk about his accomplishments in music,” Chappelle said. “But what is important for everyone in this room to know is what he means to us. What he means to his culture.”

“He is going to show us how far we can go if we can just get ahold of the opportunity,” Chappelle said. “He has his people’s heart…We love him more than you can ever recognize him for.”

"I’ve turned to Jay-Z’s words at different points in my life, whether I was brushing dirt off my shoulder on the campaign trail, or sampling his lyrics on the Edmund Pettus Bridge on the 50th anniversary of the Selma march to Montgomery," said POTUS.

Hov’s introduction also featured a star-studded clip of celebrities, rapping his lyrics and giving him his flowers, including Beyoncé, his daughter Blue Ivy, Rihanna, LeBron James, Chris Rock, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Samuel L. Jackson, Pharrell, Regina King, Lin-Manuel Miranda, John Legend, Common, Chris Rock, H.E.R., and Jamie Foxx. Check it out below:

“I would watch these guys, and you know they had big rope chains, and they wore leather, and sometimes even the red-black-green medallions, and whatever they wore, everybody would wear the next day,” Jay-Z said in his acceptance speech, referencing inductee LL Cool J, too. “And I was like, ‘That’s what I want to do. I want to be like those guys.’ And so I set out on my journey, writing at my table—shout out to Dr. Gloria Carter in the house, she bought me the green notebook.”

“We was like we gonna create our own company, you know? That’s hip-hop. And we created this company called Roc-A-Fella Records,” he said. “Shout out to Dame [Dash]; I know we don’t see eye to eye, but I can never erase your accomplishments, and I appreciate you and thank you for that. And shout out to [Kareem] ‘Biggs’ [Burke]; he’s one of the most honorable people I’ve ever met. We created something that will probably never be duplicated.”

Hov snapped it up with rap pioneer LL Cool J, who was also inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. In addition to the rap legends, Tina Turner, Carole King, Todd Rundgren, the Go-Go’s, Foo Fighters, Billy Preston, Randy Rhoads, Kraftwerk, Charley Patton, Gil Scott-Heron, and Clarence Avant were inducted this year.

 

Inside the ceremony…

Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos was spotted laughing it up with Dave Chappelle in a public show of support after the trans community (including Netflix employees) tried to cancel the comedian over his transgender jokes in "The Closer." The streaming giant refused to take down Chappelle’s comedy special from the platform despite public outrage over the comedian’s jokes.

The famed comedian embraced Ted’s wife, Nicole Avant, who is the daughter of former Motown Chairman Clarence Avant. Her father – dubbed the Black Godfather of Music – was also inducted into the Rock Hall, so they were there to celebrate him as well.

It doesn’t appear Mrs. Carter was not in attendance, but we wouldn’t be surprised if she popped up with some flicks from the event on her social media accounts. Y’all know how Bey does.

After the event…

Thank you to everyone in that video package , I’m definitely gonna cry in the car .

In my excitement , I failed to prize, and acknowledge JAZ-O, he was the hometown hero that made the dream tangible . Thank you good man… ok let me lose this password for another year or so . Thank you all again , incredibly humbled by your love .

— Mr. Carter (@sc) October 31, 2021

The 51-year-old entertainer took to Twitter to thank everyone for their kind words in the tribute video and he also gave a shoutout to Jaz-O after forgetting to give him his props during his acceptance speech.

Dave Chappelle Says His Doc Is Being Dropped By Distributors Over Trans ‘Jokes’ Controversy, Launches His Own Viewing Tour

Dave Chappelle will not be canceled, although some folks are trying. He says his upcoming documentary is being blackballed, so he decided to put a self-funded tour together to show the film in 10 cities across the nation.

The famed comedian also addressed the trans community following many people’s outrage over his Netflix comedy special, "The Closer." More inside….

Ever since Netflix premiered Dave Chappelle‘s newest comedy special, "The Closer," earlier this month, the comedian has been catching heat over jokes he made. Now, the controversy is causing drama with his new documentary.

According to the 48-year-old comedian, his new documentary is being dropped by film distributors as the transgender community rallies to have him canceled over the comedy special, which they interpreted to be "transphobic."

In a new standup clip posted to Instagram, the five-time EMMY winner shared details about his new porject. When outside was shut down due to the pandemic, Chappelle’s neighbor was nice enough to offer his Ohio cornfield to host comedy shows over the summer. In the doc, he’ll take viewers along with him while working during the pandemic.

Since the backlash from "The Closer" sparked off, he noticed invitations to major film festivals were being rescinded as well.

"They began disinviting me from these film festivals. And now, today, not a film company, not a movie studio, not a film festival, nobody will touch this film," he said.

So, what does he do? He launches his own tour to screen the documentary.

“You will be able to see this movie in its entirety and you can see what they’re trying to obstruct you from seeing and you can judge for yourself,” he said.

Transgender activists have been going hard in the paint to have Chappelle canceled. Some Netflix employees even walked off the job due to the company keeping the comedian’s special on the streaming platform. While several employees have spoken out about the special, Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos is standing ten toes down for Chappelle.

“Thank God for Ted Sarandos and Netflix. He’s the only one that didn’t cancel me yet,” he shared.

While Sarandos does support Chappelle, he did admit he "screwed up" in the way he communicated the decision to keep the show on the platform to his staff.

Trans personality Caitlyn Jenner recently came to Chappelle’s defense: 

 

Dave Chappelle is 100% right. This isn’t about the LGBTQ movement. It’s about woke cancel culture run amok, trying to silence free speech.

We must never yield or bow to those who wish to stop us from speaking our minds. pic.twitter.com/Nklalj6h5Y

— Caitlyn Jenner (@Caitlyn_Jenner) October 26, 2021

 

One thing is for sure, Chappelle isn’t going to let anyone cancel him. And he’s doubling down on every joke he made in "The Closer."

"It’s been said in the press that I was invited to speak to the transgender employees of Netflix and I refused. That is not true. If they had invited me I would have accepted it, although I am confused about what we would be speaking about," he said in the video.

“I said what I said, and boy, I heard what you said. My God, how could I not? You said you want a safe working environment at Netflix. It seems like I’m the only one who can’t go to the office," he continued.

Chappelle said he would meet with the trans community, but under certain conditions (that he semi-jokingly shared).

“To the transgender community, I am more than willing to give you an audience, but you will not summon me. I am not bending to anybody’s demands," he said.

"And if you want to meet with me, I’d be more than willing to, but I have some conditions. First of all, you cannot come if you have not watched my special from beginning to end. You must come to a place of my choosing at a time of my choosing, and thirdly, you must admit that Hannah Gadsby is not funny.”

At the end of the clip, Chappelle asked the audience “Am I canceled or not?”

Is Dave capitalizing off the "controversy" or are people actually attempting to drop him? Will you be copping tix?

Netflix Refuses To Cancel Dave Chappelle Over LGBTQ Jokes, GLAAD Responds + Damon Wayans Defends Chappelle

Is Dave Chappelle having the last laugh? Possibly. Netflix is refusing to take down his controversial comedy special, "The Closer," even after receiving tons of backlash over the LGBTQ+ jokes he dropped.

As folks try to "cancel" Dave, fellow comedian Damon Wayans is speaking out in his defense. More inside…

Dave Chappelle is no stranger to controversy. He’s the man who walked away from a $50 million contract, ending his hit show "Chappelle’s Show" on Comedy Central in 2004.

The 48-year-old comedian just doesn’t give one or two f****. So imagine his response to reports about him being "canceled" after the release of his newest Netflix comedy special "The Closer."

Since the comedy special premiered, folks in the LGBTQ+ community have been speaking out and they claim Chappelle’s new show is "transphobic."

"Dear White People" showrunner Jaclyn Moore said she’s boycotting the streaming company over Dave’s controversial comedy special, where the comedian makes numerous jokes about trans women.

 

I told the story of my transition for @netflix and @most‘s Pride week. It’s a network that’s been my home on @DearWhitePeople. I’ve loved working there.

I will not work with them as long as they continue to put out and profit from blatantly and dangerously transphobic content.

— Jaclyn Moore (@JaclynPMoore) October 7, 2021

 

"I told the story of my transition for @netflix and @most’s Pride week. It’s a network that’s been my home on @DearWhitePeople. I’ve loved working there," Jaclyn tweeted. "I will not work with them as long as they continue to put out and profit from blatantly and dangerously transphobic content."

 

I love so many of the people I’ve worked with at Netflix. Brilliant people and executives who have been collaborative and fought for important art… But I’ve been thrown against walls because, "I’m not a ‘real’ woman." I’ve had beer bottles thrown at me. So, @Netflix, I’m done. https://t.co/2naqrzW0G2

— Jaclyn Moore (@JaclynPMoore) October 7, 2021

 

"I love so many of the people I’ve worked with at Netflix. Brilliant people and executives who have been collaborative and fought for important art… But I’ve been thrown against walls because, "I’m not a ‘real’ woman." I’ve had beer bottles thrown at me. So, @Netflix, I’m done. Chappelle was one of my heroes. I was at his comeback show in NYC. But he said he’s a TERF. He compared my existence to someone doing blackface. He talks about someone winning a Woman of the Year award despite never having a period should make women mad and that it makes him mad"

 

So when he says people should be mad a trans woman won a "Woman of the Year" award… When he misgenders… When he says he should’ve told that mother her daughter WAS A DUDE… I just can’t… I can’t be a part of a company that thinks that’s worth putting out and celebrating.

— Jaclyn Moore (@JaclynPMoore) October 7, 2021

 

"And then he ended his special with a "but I had a trans friend" story. He says we don’t listen. But he’s not listening. Those words have real world consequences. Consequences that every trans woman I know has dealt with. Bruises and panicked phone calls to friends. That’s real. So when he says people should be mad a trans woman won a "Woman of the Year" award… When he misgenders… When he says he should’ve told that mother her daughter WAS A DUDE… I just can’t… I can’t be a part of a company that thinks that’s worth putting out and celebrating."

Needless to say, the LGBTQ+ community isn’t feeling Dave’s new special, however, everyone else is.

Despite the controversy, Netflix’s co-chief executive, Ted Sarandos, defended the comedy special in an internal memo to his staff.

The Washington Post reports:

Sarandos wrote that, although some people may find stand-up comedy to be “mean-spirited,” “our members enjoy it, and it’s an important part of our content offering.”

“Chappelle is one of the most popular stand-up comedians today, and we have a long standing deal with him,” Sarandos added in the memo obtained by news outlets. “His last special ‘Sticks & Stones,’ also controversial, is our most watched, stickiest and most award winning stand-up special to date.”

The memo followed condemnation from Jaclyn Moore, a transgender writer who worked on the Netflix original “Dear White People,” as well as criticism from Terra Field, a transgender software engineer at Netflix. Advocacy groups, including GLAAD and the National Black Justice Coalition, also condemned the special and asked for its removal.

After the release of the speical, three Netflix employees were suspended. While there were reports that the employees were reprimanded due to tweeting about the special, that doesn’t seem to be true.

The NY Times reports:

Netflix recently suspended three employees, including a transgender employee who posted a Twitter thread last week criticizing a new Dave Chappelle stand-up special on the streaming service as being transphobic.

The employees were suspended after they attended a virtual business meeting among top executives at the company that they had not been invited to, a person familiar with the decision said on Monday, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss a personnel matter. Netflix said in a statement that the transgender employee, Terra Field, was not suspended because of the tweets critical of Mr. Chappelle’s show.

“It is absolutely untrue to say that we have suspended any employees for tweeting about this show,” a Netflix spokesperson said in a statement. “Our employees are encouraged to disagree openly, and we support their right to do so."

Speaking of GLAAD…

While @Netflix is home to groundbreaking LGBTQ stories, now is the time for Netflix execs to listen to LGBTQ employees, industry leaders, and audiences and commit to living up to their own standards. 2/2

— GLAAD (@glaad) October 11, 2021

GLAAD – a media monitoring organization founded as a protest against defamatory coverage of LGBT people – released a statement in regards to Dave Chappelle’s new comedy special.

“Netflix has a policy that content ‘designed to incite hate or violence’ is not allowed on the platform, but we all know that anti-LGBTQ content does exactly that. While Netflix is home to groundbreaking LGBTQ stories, now is the time for Netflix execs to listen to LGBTQ employees, industry leaders, and audiences and commit to living up to their own standards.”

There have been reports that Netflix suspended employees for speaking out on social media about the comedy series. That isn’t the case.

According to reports, three employees were suspended for crashing a very important meeting with executives. One of the people who crashed the meeting happened to be an employee who tweeted their disapproval of Dave Chappelle’s special. The headlines turned into folks pointing the finger at Netflix for suspending employees for speaking out against the special, which isn’t the case.

Terra Field, a senior software engineer based in San Francisco who identifies as queer and trans, was among those suspended late last week for attending the “QBR” — Netflix’s quarterly business review, a two-day affair that convenes the top 500 employees at the company.

I work at @netflix. Yesterday we launched another Chappelle special where he attacks the trans community, and the very validity of transness – all while trying to pit us against other marginalized groups. You’re going to hear a lot of talk about "offense".

We are not offended

— Terra Field (@RainofTerra) October 7, 2021

The problem is that people are responding to something we never said. We aren’t complaining about "being offended" and we don’t have "thin skin". You try going to a pharmacy and having them call you "sir" in front of everyone while you pick up your estradiol. "Thin skin"

— Terra Field (@RainofTerra) October 7, 2021

Fellow comedian Damon Wayans defended Dave Chappelle while chopping it up with TMZ. He said he feels like Dave "freed the slaves."

“The comedians. We were slaves to PC culture,” Damon said. “As an artist, he’s Van Gogh with his ear off. He’s trying to tell us, ‘It’s okay.’ ”

“I’ve always been free,” Wayans noted, but he felt that Chappelle was saying, “all that I have, I’m not afraid to lose it for the sake of freedom of speech.”

“You can’t edit yourself,” said Wayans. “Comedians … we’re like … Mercedes makes a great car, but they gotta crash a lot of them before they perfect it.”

Asked about the backlash The Closer has received — the comedy special features several minutes of jokes about transgender people — he responded: “I can’t speak about the content of the show. But what I say is there’s a bigger conversation we need to have. Someone needs to look us in the eye and say, ‘You’re no longer free in this country. You’re not free to say what you want; you say what we want you to say. Otherwise, we will cancel you.’ That’s the discussion we need to have.”

Dave Chappelle fans are confused because when he was cracking jokes about Black people…there wasn’t an uproar. Now, that Dave cracks jokes on the LGBTQ+ community, its an issue.

Have you watched Dave’s new Netflix special? Were you offended or do you feel like Damon Wayans?

Kanye West Joins Kim K For Her ‘SNL’ Debut As She Jokes About Their Divorce, Sources Say They Were Flirting On Set

Kim Kardashian West has jokes! And she’s using her pending divorce from Kanye West as a punchline during her "Saturday Night Live" monologue. Go inside to see how she did and what folks were saying about the couple inside…

Kim Kardashian West is in the building! And yes, she’s still adding West to her name.

On Saturday, Kim Kardashian West made her "Saturday Night Live" debut, hitting the stage in an all-pink ensemble to host. And chick cracked some good and cringey jokes during her monologue.  Of course, she was spoonfed with all the help in the world from comedy honchos Dave Chappelle, Michelle Wolf, Ellen DeGeneres, Amy Schumer and James Corden, reportedly. She reportedly also rehearsed about 20 hours a day leading up to this because she was terrified of bombing.

The 40-year-old reality star opened the show with a proud introduction of herself as "Kim Kardashian West." And her estranged husband Kanye West, 44, was right in the audience to support after being spotted with Kim the night before (below).

The "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" alum joked about her being labeled as a "gold digger."

"I’m excited to be here tonight to show you guys that I’m so much more than just a pretty face and good hair and great makeup and amazing boobs and a perfect butt," she said. "Basically, I’m just so much more than that reference photo my sisters showed their plastic surgeons."

"But the one thing I’m really proud of is that no one can ever call me a gold digger," Kardashian West continued. "Honestly, I’m not even sure how you become one. So I asked my mom’s boyfriend Corey [Gamble]."

Weak! Whoever wrote her jokes need a raise.

As you know, Kim K filed for divorce from Kanye in February. She used the high-profile breakup as a punchline on Ye’s personality.

"I’ve been very blessed in this life, and I’m grateful for everything, honestly, all the ups, all the downs," she said. "I mean, I married the best rapper of all time. Not only that, he’s the richest Black man in America, a talented, legit genius, who gave me four incredible kids."

She continued, "So when I divorced him, you have to know it came down to just one thing: his personality. I know it sounds mean, but people keep telling me that comedy comes from truth. And if there’s one thing that I always strive to be, it’s genuine."

Sources told Page Six the DONDA rapper left the audience shortly after the show’s opening. But before he left, Kim supposedly “blew a kiss” to her friends in the audience, which included Kanye, her bestie LaLa Anthony, her sister Khloe Kardashian, her momager Kris Jenner and her mom’s boyfriend, Corey Gamble.

Before her big moment, sources told PEOPLE that the mom-of-four was feeling pressure and anxiety before her gig, but Ye helped her out by giving her hosting tips.

In addition to cracking jokes on her family – including Caitlyn Jenner – she also joked about her late dad’s friend/former NFL star O.J. Simpson. She said her father, Robert Kardashian, introduced her to the first Black person she ever met.

“It’s because of my father I met my first Black person. Want to take a stab in the dark at who it was?," she asked with a grin on her face. "I know it’s sort of weird to remember your first Black person you met, but OJ [Simpson] does leave a mark. Or none at all, I still don’t know.”

WOW. Shocked, but not shocked she said this.

Below are some reactions to the OJ joke:

 

Wow! Kim Kardashian nailed her monologue on #SaturdayNightLive
The "OJ Simpson" touch is my favourite. https://t.co/yv4C5mDgNY

— Adewale Adeyemi (@OfficialDewale) October 10, 2021

 

 

The bit about OJ Simpson was in extremely poor taste since Nicole and Ron Goldman were brutally murdered and her two kids lost their mother.

— Mira (@mmctec) October 10, 2021

 

 

Kim Kardashian killed it in her SNL monologue, especially with those OJ Simpson jokes.

— William Webb (@BillyWebb) October 10, 2021

 

 

Kim Kardashian talking about OJ Simpson “stab in the dark” is an all-time SNL monologue right now.

#EMMYSSOWHITE: No Black Actors Won In Major Acting Categories Despite Historic & Diverse Nominations

Another year, same ish. White actors and actresses swept up all the acting awards during the 2021 Primetime EMMYs despite almost half of the nominees being people of color. Now, #EMMYSSOWHITE is trending….

When this year’s Primetime EMMYs kicked off with host Cedric the Entertainer paying tribute to late Hip Hop pioneer Biz Markie, it surely gave off a vibe that it was the start of a bomb night for black actors and actresses. The 73rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards had a Black host, Black announcer (MC Lyte), and even Black music.

Yet, black actors and actresses were completely shut out of ALL of the major acting categories. What’s more is the fact that performers of color comprised almost half (44%) of the acting nominations for this year’s awards. And that’s the first time in EMMYs history that many people of color were nominated in acting categories.

While the nominations were historic, the wins were NOT. White actors and actresses swept up all 12 lead AND supporting categories across drama, comedy and limited series categories. There were several Black solid contenders like the late Michael K. Williams ("Lovecraft Country"), Billy Porter and MJ Rodriguez ("POSE") and Kenan Thompson (NBC’s "Kenan").

Clearly, the math ain’t mathin’ and folks had plenty to say about it:

50% of tonight’s nominees were people of color and Television Academy voters pretty much chose all the white people #EmmysSoWhite #Emmys pic.twitter.com/oTtx1TSxvc

the Emmys is like that tv show you’re still watching *just in case* it finally does something different

but every year it proves you wrong and does its same old thing again. and again. and again. #EmmysSoWhite

"All that talking this past year !! Everybody saying they want inclusion … but yet we see the same results over and over again… no increase in black show runners – same people in position , not allowing others to enter the space – no new faces , No breakouts , no new artist , writers or directors – !!," he wrote. "And this is the results … No wins !! Not even close – Been waiting for @blackishabc and @anthonyanderson and @traceeellisross to sweep the emmys in some form for 5 years – still nothing !! Insecure ?!! Nothing ?! But yet you build shows just like these that win year after year – and lord knows I’m speaking as a fan !! It’s tiring !!! And I don’t wanna hear , we need our own awards show !! Cause the amount of money we bring in – and the level of culture we deliver daily , needs to be rewarded on the big stage , with everyone else !! Feel like we have been lied to again …. Why can’t we get a fair shake “?! I’m asking … where are the black critics ? And do they really count ? If so – why dont we ever win?! We can’t win – “A category” ever ! God help us find unity and fairness! I love entertainment- and I absolutely love television and film !! I’ve given my life to it- but at some point – we need to see REAL CHANGE !!!! And I’m not talking about a invite !! Congratulations to the Queen @therealdebbieallen and #machella for you’re win this evening ! Hoping we can see more of this in the near future !! @televisionacad somebody please call me !! Would love to have a real conversation – that can help this problem… we have a group over here, waiting to have a real conversation that can help."

Last year, four creatives of color won in major categories, including Zendaya, Regina King, Uzo Aduba and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II. This year: zero.

While there weren’t any people of color collecting trophies in the acting categories, there were some wins for the culture.

Last weekend, a few people of color won awards during the Creative Arts EMMYs, including Courtney B. Vance, who won Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for his guest starring role in HBO’s "Lovecraft Country." Comedian Dave Chappelle won Outstanding Directing for a Variety Series for hosting "Saturday Night Live," and Maya Rudolph won Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for hosting "Saturday Night Live."

"RuPaul’s Drag Race" won Outstanding Casting for a Reality Program during the Creative EMMYs.

Despite the snubs, two Black creatives did win awards that were televised, and made history.

Michaela Coel – who was up for four awards – won the award for Outstanding Writing for a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for "I May Destroy You." It’s the first time a Black woman has won the award and the third time it was given to a Black creative. 

RuPaul made history yet again! The famed TV host and producer won three EMMYs, including Outstanding Host for a Reality or Competition Program, Outstanding Unstructured Reality Program and Outstanding Competition Program for "RuPaul’s Drag Race."

RuPaul now has 11 EMMY Awards and now holds the record for the most EMMYs won by a person of color. Congrats!

‘Snowfall’ Star Damson Idris Re-Enacts How Jay-Z Clowned Him For Being Shirtless During Zoom Call + His SPOT ON Hov Impression

“Snowfall” star Damson Idris learned a hard lesson in Zoom etiquette after showing up shirtless for Roc Nation’s Lenny Santiago’s birthday zoom call. Jay-Z was on the call and wasted NO time to roast him for having his “nipples” out. Get your laugh on inside…

Talk about being hilariously embarrassed by rap royalty!

At the beginning of the pandemic, “Snowfall” actor Damson Idris said he didn’t even know what Zoom was. “I’m a Skype guy,” he told Robin Roberts on “Good Morning America” recently.

But, he leaned a hard lesson in Zoom etiquette when he hopped on a Zoom call with Jay-Z and 40 others….shirtless.

Apparently, one of Idris’ friends hit him up to hop on a Zoom call to celebrate Roc Nation exec Lenny Santiago’s birthday. The actor revealed he thought there would only be a handful of people on the call. That was NOT the case.

The British hottie said when he hopped on, people instantly began laughing when he popped in…topless. He didn’t realize the video conference app could hold so many people in one meeting, so he was shocked when he realized he had his chest out in front 40+ people, who happen to be celebrities, including Meek Mill, Tiffany Haddish, Kevin Hart, Dave Chappelle, Michael B. Jordan and more.

While telling the story, he served up a SPOT ON impression of Jay-Z.

“I jump on the Zoom and immediately everyone’s laughing because I’m topless,” he recalled. “I thought there were going to be four people there and it’s literally 40 people there and I hear a distinctive voice and the voice is like, ‘Hey man, this man on here topless with his nipples out and he got the grey headboard. Yo, who’s in charge of this Zoom? Yo Schaffer, you in charge of this Zoom? Yeah, you see that guy Damson, kick him out.”

We die!

Idris quickly realized it was Hov speaking, and he was terrified. But, he tried to play it off.

“I’m like ‘Hey guys, you know it’s late in London let me just get a hoodie, I was going to bed, you know how it is,’” he said.

Hov wasn’t buying it and got on his NYC a**hole ish.

“‘Ok,’” Idris said, imitating Jay. “‘So you wear a hoodie to bed? OK, well, you know, you busy like you said. You in London, so obviously, you know it’s Lenny’s birthday, so why don’t you give your little speech and be on your way.”

At that moment, Idris said he was SO embarrassed and angry with himself. He said he was running around his house jokingly yelling, “I hate Jay-Z!”

HA!

Peep the clip below:

"The Legendary B-Day Zoom lives on and on and on.. Lol. @damsonidris,” Lenny captioned the clip. “’Yo @shafferdc kick him out’ haaaaa,” he continued.

Get Out star Lil Rel Howery found humor in the clip as well:

100% a true story Jay was roasting everybody but when you showed up in bed yo https://t.co/vkGYmiTrh3

Now we know…you better be dressed when you hop on a Zoom call with Jay-Z or prepared to get roasted!

ICYMI: Azealia Banks’ Claims About Sleeping With Married Dave Chapelle Still Have Us Cringing – ‘I Should Ruin Your F*cking Marriage!’

Azealia Banks is making claims that she had sex with married comedian Dave Chappelle. More inside…

Usually when drama with female rappers/singers pop off, Azealia Banks loves to chime in when her two cents.

After that Doja Cat drama, Azealia hopped on Instagram to drag the “Say So” singer and her remix featured rapper, Nicki Minaj. Their song lit up Billboard’s Hot 100 charts, coming in after Megan Thee Stallion and Beyonce’s “Savage Remix.” History was made and Banks shared her opinions about it.

In the midst of trashing talking Doja & Nicki, she then turned her attack on a very well-known comedian: Dave Chappelle.

The “211” rapper said she’s tired of covering for men who never defend her, so she was airing out all her dirty laundry. Well, their allegedly dirty laundry.

“I have actually f*cked a lot of f*cking very powerful f*cking men,” she said. “And you will f*cking gag when I spill all the f*cking tea. It’s a lot of tea I be wanting to spill on you f*cking black n*ggas. Especially like, when y’all be seeing me getting attacked in the f*cking media and sh*t and y’all don’t come for my rescue,” she continued.

Then, she started to name drop.

“Dave Chappelle, I should ruin your fu*king marriage, I should tell the world that we f*cked,” Azealia revealed. “Cause y’all niggas don’t look out for me so ehat the f*ck I’m keeping secrets from y’all n*ggas for? No, Dave Chappelle can fuck me again. That was some good black dick.”

Yikes.

Gucci Mane – Out The Zoo (Woptober Album) letras

[Intro]
(Listen to this track bitch)
Woah, Wop
Hah, Wop
Woah, sheesh
Burr, toy
Skrt, Wizzop

[Verse 1]
I take the good with the bad and the bad with the good
The plug sent the goods so I had to flood the hood
The plug sent the bag then I offed that too
That made me a bigger asset to the plug
But tell me how you feel when your plug tell on ya
Your partner in crime on thugs tell on ya
Talking 20 years, 30 years, 50 years
In the cell feeling drunk like you drunk 80 pills
Homicide though, genocide when I ride
When we die, only God knows where the bullets fly
In my Hummer truck, Will is coming through my car door
I had contract killers staying at my condo
Got a hole in your folk just to show I ain’t bluffing
Gotta vest up cause I sure ain’t ducking
Standing in the cold on the corner, flash O’s
Sold his soul to the devil for a Mac-11
100 bricks of pure coke, white like heaven
My Mexican copped the lick, connect doing confession
Sitting in the pin, son just turned seven
I progress then regress and this shit is getting depressing
But I count my stash ‘fore I count my blessings
And I load my weapon ‘fore I eat my breakfast
The streets keep talking and the snitches keep telling
Your whole life can change in a motherfucking second

[Hook]
Out the cage in a rage like I escaped out the zoo
They playing games with me when they know that I’m a fool
Set it off like Queen Latifah, give me the loot or I’ma shoot
You nincompoops so rude-a-poo, you tuti-fruit, you through
I’m an animal, a cannibal, they say I’m on the loose
Animal, a cannibal, they say I’m on the loose
Gucci Mane La Flare, you prolly seen me on the news
Out the cage in a rage like I escaped out the zoo

[Verse 2]
I might manic, I go in ang panic, don’t see nothing but red
Off my millions I can’t sleep for days cause I hear voices in my head
This lil devil on my left shoulder say “shoot him in his dreads”
While an angel on the right whisper “just shoot him in the leg”
I admit that I might need some help, I guess I made a step
Man they think I need a shrink cause I fear God but don’t fear death
I’m so selfish, I bought 80 pints to drink ’em by myself
A swimming pool full of drank, I dive in like I’m Michael Phelps
Louis glasses, Ferragamo belt, I’m Gucci Mane XL
YSL with the new Gazelles that match my blue Chevelle
Bitches laughing like I’m Dave Chappelle cause I stay fresh as hell
Zone 6, Zone 6, you don’t like it? Kill yourself

[Hook]
Out the cage in a rage like I escaped out the zoo
They playing games with me when they know that I’m a fool
Set it off like Queen Latifah, give me the loot or I’ma shoot
You nincompoops, so rude-a-poo, you tuti-fruit, you through
I’m an animal, a cannibal, they say I’m on the loose
Animal, a cannibal, they say I’m on the loose
Gucci Mane La Flare, you prolly seen me on the news
Out the cage in a rage like I escaped out the zoo
