To all y’all complaining about Dave Chappelle, keep in mind that humour usually involves making fun of people and it doesn’t make people anti-whatever-they’re-making-fun-of:

Absolutely but there’s a thin line in humour I find between doing it in jest and doing it with ill intent. I think knowing it will offend people is when you should rethink your approach. Especially when it comes to minorities and those underrepresented. It leads to a dangerous precedent that it’s okay to treat people who don’t meet the “norm” this way. There’s a thin line when crossing that line.

Don Rickles I find was one to insult people but you always knew he was just doing it in jest. That’s the difference between this situation and with him.
