To the point where, when Chappelle surprised everyone by turning down $50 million dollars to continue the series, we hounded the man to come back to comedy. So eventually, he did.
But the problem is, he came back at the wrong time (or right time depending on who you ask). The America of 2006 is long and gone. Welcome to 2019, where being offended by everything is the “new black.”
You see, according to a very loud minority, apparently there are things that can never be made fun of. And believe me when I say that list is as long as a giraffe dick. With that said, Chappelle gave zero fucks about playing by the rules. He burned that list, and salted the earth behind him. And in that same spirit, I’m going to be coloring outside the lines in this review (pun intended).
So what aren’t we allowed to laugh and joke about?
If you haven’t seen the show, Dave tackles a number of topics from “cancel culture,” the #MeToo movement, the LGTBQ community, and even the opioid crisis in White America. And though he spent little time on each topic, it was enough fire to set off a national fight.
