Remember when Dave Chappelle left the third season of Chappelle’s Show and just kind of disappeared, and then everyone made a super big deal about it? He should go ahead and do that again, but like … forever.
In addition to making problematic comments about the women who accused Louis C.K. of sexual misconduct, claiming one had a “brittle spirit” since she felt “discouraged” to pursue comedy after C.K. sexually harassed her, Chappelle has now come under fire for making some blatantly ignorant comments about queer folk.
Did you hear that y’all? It’s OK for you to be molested as long as you’re gay, because then … you like it more? Because you have less of a desire to be un-molested than a straight person? Because every day, before you kiss your Cher poster hello and scream “yasssssss” at all of your adoring fag hags, you think to yourself, “My life would be a lot cooler if I were to get molested today?”
“And not to victim-blame,” he continued, before victim-blaming, “but it seems like the kind of situation that a gay 14-year-old kid would get himself into.”
Ya, because the first thing that all queer teens do when they come out, right after exulting in the transformative emotional benefits of receiving universal social acceptance from their friends and family, is to get touched by an older man.
“All joking aside, Kevin Spacey shouldn’t have done that shit to that kid,” Chappelle said, making us think he might have an ounce of sympathy for queer people left in him. “He was 14 years old and forced to carry a grown man’s secret for 30 years. The saddest part is, if he had been able to carry that secret for another six months, I would get to know how House of Cards ends.”
Nope. Just full-on victim-blaming.
