Trans star Ts Madison has responded to all of the hype surrounding Dave Chappelle’s recent Netflix special, “The Closer.”
She says that she has not watched the show but that she doesn’t appreciate being told how to feel about issues relating to the trans community.
“That’s it…….#davechappelle,” she beings in the post. I’m not windmilling bout this s—t no mo‼️ For the REST of y’all 1. you can’t Tell Trans 🏳️⚧️ People what they should and Shouldn’t be offered by🤷🏽♀️ We don’t do it to black people….” she said.
Madison continued, “2. If you are a gay man and watched it and weren’t offended by it……. Ok…. You still can’t tell others what don’t offend them 🤷🏽♀️ “
Madison also says she’s not worried about any anti-trans violence. “3. ION GIVE A F-C….I stay strapped Just in case anybody wants to be “inspired” by anything they’ve seen Be blessed……”
In the special, Chappelle discussed Black entertainers being “canceled” over anti-LGBTQ+ remarks or jokes, including comedian Kevin Hart and rapper DaBaby.
“In our country, you can shoot and kill a n*gga but you better not hurt a gay person’s feelings,” Chappelle said. “And this is precisely the disparity that I wish to discuss.”
Chappelle said that he agreed with “Harry Potter” author J.K Rowling on her seemingly anti-trans statements. “I’m team TERF!” Chappelle said. Rowling faced backlash and canceling after stating that gender is a fact.
“Gender is a fact. Every human being in this room, every human being on earth, had to pass through the legs of a woman to be on earth,” Chappelle said.
His joke about beating up a lesbian in a nightclub also riled people up. “I whooped the toxic masculinity out of that b—ch,” he quipped.
Chappelle ended his special with a touching story about a transgender comedian who he befriended. Chappelle’s late friend took to Twitter to defend his previous Netflix comedy and killed herself after receiving hate online from other members of the trans community.
