I love Dave Chappelle. I know some on this board can’t stand him because of previous sexist comments, and I respect their views. But in my own life, Dave’s comedy has always brought me joy through very dark times and I am a huge fan. His willingness to speak truth to power is unparalleled and a much needed light in this world.

The bar for men, and especially famous men, is so low that given that (afaik) he is is not violent or has sexually harassed women... he gets into my "meh" category

I have seen enough articles calling out his misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, etc..than I have seen for many other comedians actors that DID horrible things

Previous sexist comments?

All throughout the special he refers to women as bitches, talks about beating up a lesbian, and makes a point about how no men would want to rape an ugly "dyke".

This man is practicing some high-tier misogyny.

Yes, I feel the same way. I love him. I think it’s not as simple to dismiss him as a misogynist; I think his stuff is deeper than that.
