Caitlyn Jenner Defends Dave Chappelle Instead of the Trans Community He Attacked

Jason A. Michael

Controversial comedian Dave Chappelle has a new and unlikely ally in controversial trans reality star Caitlyn Jenner. This partnership comes after Chappelle responded to the media coverage of his Netflix special "The Closer" in an Instagram video from a recent show.

"I want everyone in this audience to know that even though the media frames it that it's me against that community, that's not what it is," he said. "Do not blame the LGBTQ community for any of this shit. It's not about them. It's about corporate interests and what I can and cannot say."
Jenner agreed with Chappelle in a Twitter post and offered her opinion.

"Dave Chappelle is 100 percent right," Jenner tweeted Tuesday. "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."

As Pride Source previously reported, Chappelle said he has no issue with the LGBTQ+ community and is even willing to meet with trans Netflix employees that staged a walk-out, as long as they meet his conditions.

"First of all, you cannot come if you have not watched my special from beginning to end," he said in the video. "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."

Perhaps Jenner can join Chappelle in the meeting.
