#DaveChappelle is a vile human actively attacking minorities who are already a target of constant harassment.

And #JohnMulaney is as disgusting for actively supporting, platforming & exposing his audience to this type of derogatory ambush and verbal abuse. ImageImage
Canceling is not a real thing so don't even start.

These "jokes" feed into the hatred and dehumanization of transgender people and disabled people.
Making a joke involving trans people is not the problem.

The problem is making that they are trans the joke, the problem is using disgusting untrue stereotypes to attack a minority for who they are is the problem.

Here is a video of the aftermath. #DaveChappelle handled this like a champ! #HollywoodBowl
For everyone asking here is a brief synopsis of what happened.

#DaveChappelle was just finishing his show. He was doing his final commentary as he usually does asking for the OG comedians to come back on stage so he can have the crowd give them a round of applause…

Part 1
Suddenly a random person sitting in the front row jumped on stage and ran straight at him. He tackled Dave and they both went to the floor and began wrestling when everyone ran onstage to help, including Dave’s security…

Part 2

Dave Chapelle was rushed & attacked on stage by a man at the Hollywood Bowl. Chapelle tussled w/ the man, who ran behind the screen on stage & was surrounded by security. Chris Rock, who performed earlier, came on stage w/ him & joked: “Was that Will Smith?” #netflixisajokefest
LAPD confirm to KABC they responded to an incident at the Hollywood Bowl around 10:45 p.m., and a man who was reportedly armed with a gun and a knife was taken into custody. #netflixisajokefest #DaveChappelle
Police sources tell ABC News the suspect in the #davechapelle attack had a gun-shaped knife when arrested. It was not a functional gun as first believed.

Security-wise: There were metal detectors (my IPhone actually set one off), bags were checked going in, food was allowed in.

Who else is watching #HaloTheSeries ?

I legit started watching it yesterday after being told that I was missing out on something great, didn't believe it. Till I binged it.

Are you watching it? if not you are missing out and here is why:

1. Great action and story! CGI is legit and the battle scenes are amazing! Loving this show and learning these characters via the missions and things they have going on.
Wished it took longer to reveal his face but still no complaints as much as it connects audience to the cast
2. #Cortana is dope. Sad, how she is able to shut down #MasterChief like that. Hopefully he understands that she is fully living thinking AI😂

Interesting how she wants to fully wants control, makes me really scared of #AI

Thanks to the @internetarchive we can jump back in time to 3 weeks before Daphne’s death…

And she had 9 replies then, too. 🤔 September 19, 2019, Internet Archive Wayback Machine capture

Dave Chappelle and I live in the same village: Yellow Springs, Ohio. I don’t know him. We’re merely co-residents among 3,900 or so others in that same small town. (Though typically Dave’s the only one new acquaintances ask me about when I mention where I’m from.) 🧵
By the way, this is going to be a ridiculously long thread and I’m warning you about that right now. So if you decide to read it, don’t act like you didn’t know what you were getting into.

[insert iaintreadingallthat.jpg here]
When I was younger, I saw a handful of movies Dave appeared in. Villagers would sometimes say things like, “I went to a party with that guy from Men in Tights when he was in YS for the summer one time.” Which I guess seemed like a vaguely interesting piece of local trivia. 🤷

Netflix is strongly contesting the insistence today of a now fired staffer that they did not leak confidential financial information about #DaveChappelle and others to the press — very strongly…
“While we would never normally talk about an investigation like this, these claims are not supported by the facts,” a spokesperson for the streamer told Deadline (Cont.)…
“This employee admitted sharing confidential information externally from their Netflix email on several occasions,” the Netflix spokesperson went on (Cont.)…

I am here at the #NetflixWalkout. As a non-binary filmmaker who has helped create over 30 hours of Emmy winning original documentaries for @netflix, I will not stay quiet.

The damage done by #DaveChappelle’s transphobia is consistent and it translates to real world hate.
“It’s about talking about the things that make us uncomfortable. Because the reason we haven’t been liberated is because we are prioritizing convenience and comfort over our liberation!” - Organizer for the #NetflixWalkout, @AshleeMPreston
Organizer @AshleeMPreston talks about her disappointment in performative allies who aren’t there to support the trans/non-binary community when “shit hits the fan.”

Trans/non-binary folks often face violent hate for speaking out. Ashlee talks about death threats she’s received.

Reasons to be cheerful Part II.

I am well aware that Twitter is not ‘real life’ but a social media platform that seems to encourage the worst in humanity in terms of abnegation of critical thought and knee jerk reactions to insult and abuse. But it’s still interesting.
In my decade on this platform this has been my most popular tweet ever. The response to it, at a rough estimate were 80:20 in favour. Even more interesting, the nature and extent of the abuse was fairly mild. I was mostly stupid or needed to relax.
I only had to block one person who kept insisting I ‘hated’ little boys in dresses. This was a deliberately dishonest statement. Of course this lack of abuse could simply be because over the years I have blocked the worst offenders. But could it be that the tide is turning?

Chapelle has also:
1) morphed into the obnoxious comedian, Reggie Warrington, from The Nutty Professor.
2) made leaving his show, for fear that racists & bigots were laughing at him, a moot point. #DaveChappelle #SticksandStones (s/o @VerySmartBros)
There's nothing funny about being an asshole, just for the sake of being an asshole. He's a brilliant comedian. We've seen him be way better than this, which makes it frustrating & confusing. #DaveChapelle #SticksAndStones
If your comedy routine is comprised of degrading & offensive jokes, that's lazy just writing. Chapelle wasn't always like this. "Killing Them Softly" & "For What It's Worth" are fantastic & definitely in my top 10. #SticksAndStones #DaveChapelle
