Liberals aren’t happy with comedian Dave Chappelle.
“Gender is a fact,” Chappelle said in opposition to radical leftists.
“Every human being in this room, every human being on Earth, had to pass through the legs of a woman to be on Earth,” he continued.
“That is a fact,” Chappelle emphasized.
“Now, I am not saying that to say trans women aren’t women,” he continued. “I am just saying that those p*****s that they got… you know what I mean?”
“I’m not saying it’s not p***y, but it’s Beyond P***y or Impossible P***y,” Cappelle joked.
Chappelle’s latest comedy special is called The Closer and it aired on Netflix.
He even goes one step further by defending Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling. Chappelle says she was wrongfully “canceled” for similar remarks.
Chappelle likens himself to Rowling regarding a 2019 controversy when she identified herself as a “TERF,” or “trans-exclusionary radical feminist.”
He says that he is supportive of “team TERF.”

The comedian later addresses any possible criticism he might receive, saying in a tongue-in-cheek joke, “Any of you who have ever watched me know that I have never had a problem with transgender people. If you listen to what I’m saying, clearly, my problem has always been with white people.”

Some prominent media pieces, such as a 2019 article from Buzzfeed, opined that the comedian could “strive to be more thoughtful” in regards to Chappelle’s past transgender jokes.
Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg once scolded Chappelle’s humor on the transgender subject, saying his 2019 special Sticks and Stones might contain jokes that could hurt people.
“I haven’t seen the special,” then-mayor Buttigieg said in an interview with Peter Hamby. “I will say that there comes a point where you’re just straight up hurting people, and I don’t know what goal you’re hoping to achieve.”
