You've probably already heard about the controversy or even weighed in on Dave Chappelle's final comedy special for Netflix, The Closer, where the comedy legend spends most of the hour taking an irreverent and critical look at the collective struggle of LGBTQ folks.Despite being a comedy special everyone loves to hate, Chappelle does bring up some wonderful sex positive material like wondering what MLK Jr would have to say about glory holes. Unfortunately, Chapelle proclaims himself team TERF while perpetuating some harmful ideas about trans bodies and compares trans women's genitals to vegan burgers.The Closer is probably the longest set any comedian has ever spent talking on LGBTQ+ issues and is way more complicated than clickbait articles would have you believe.All controversy aside, we are puzzled that Dave Chappelle would align himself with the same regressive people he claimed were the reason why he abruptly walked away from a 50 million dollar paycheck when he quit his successful show on Comedy Central over 15 years ago.MATT BROWN: https://www.msbrowncomedy.com/GET YOUR FREE ONE YEAR DOT GAY DOMAIN: www.feastoffun.gayACCESS THOUSANDS OF LEGENDARY FEAST OF FUN SHOWS
