    “Establishments Su*king Up To Stupid Wokes”: Social Media Splits Over Dave Chappelle Show Getting Cancelled Over LGBTQ Backlash

    Dave Chappelle bears the brunt of his jokes. The comedian has managed to grab the international headlines for quite a few months. From being attacked on the stage of the Netflix Is A Joke‘ event to receiving criticism for his transphobic jokes. Things have seemed to take a turn for the worse as his recent show at First Venue gets canceled.

    Considering Chapelle’s ongoing backlash on social media, the event was canceled just hours before the show was set to begin.

    Dave Chappelle’s scheduled program at the Minneapolis venue will no longer take place. The last-minute decision was taken in wake of the star being the center of controversy over his Netflix program, ‘The Closer’. The statement also stated that his performance would now take place at Varsity Theater.

    The Dave Chappelle show tonight at First Avenue has been canceled and is moving to the Varsity Theater,” the announcement read. “To staff, artists, and our community, we hear you and we are sorry. We know we must hold ourselves to the highest standards, and we know we let you down. We are not just a black box with people in it, and we understand that First Ave is not just a room, but meaningful beyond our walls.”

    The statement continued, “The First Avenue team and you have worked hard to make our venues the safest spaces in the country, and we will continue with that mission. We believe in diverse voices and the freedom of artistic expression, but in honouring that, we lost sight of the impact this would have.”

    While on the other hand, it’s surprising to see the American comedian being nominated for an Emmy Award. It was announced on July 12 that his Netflix special ‘The Closer‘ received a nomination under the category of Best Variety Special (pre-recorded).
