Dave Chappelle Labeled A ‘Bigot’ By Student During Q&A At His Old High School About “The Closer”

Dave Chappelle wasn’t invited to his former school’s fundraising, but then he showed up, and during a Q&A segment, he was labeled a ‘bigot’ for his comments about the trans community.

The famous comedian responded saying:

“My friend, with all due respect, I don’t believe you could make one of the decisions I have to make on a given day.”

A spokesperson for the school said that students were welcoming overall, but felt that some of their questions weren’t taken seriously by Chappelle. “During the conversation with students and staff, Chappelle specifically invited the voices of discontent to ask questions, however as a result, the supporters of Chappelle became the silent majority,” said school spokesperson Savannah Overton. “Our principal was approached by several students after the assembly who were disappointed that they were not able to voice their support for Chappelle in this forum.”

Chappelle also voiced his support for students who planned to protest his appearance and spoke out against those that were met with threats.

“His whole tone changed,” one student recalled. “He said, ‘This is my family and whether they know it or not I love these kids. … I don’t want to hear about any threats to these kids. These kids don’t deserve that.’ He was really kind. If [only] he [had] acted that way the whole time. … There was no reason to be mean to us. He was just laughing at kids.”

Someone mentioned, especially for the younger kids at the High School, is why they are even watching a special like “The Closer”? That is for mature audiences, not 14-year-old kids. One problem with our society is that kids aren’t allowed to be kids. They are dealing with things that adults should be dealing with.

It is sad. At 14, I was thinking about Nintendo, not trying to have a debate with a grown man about a comedy special.
