Students made fun of Dave Chappelle during visit to his old high school

Dave Chappelle has been under fire since the release of “The Closer” last month, in which he declared himself to be a “trans-exclusionary radical feminist”—TERF.

Chappelle who graduated from the prestigious school in 1991 — spent about an hour addressing 580 students inside an auditorium, according to Politico, before things “went south” during a subsequent Q&A session.

The funnyman has faced accusations of transphobia due to jokes made in his new Netflix special, “The Closer,” and students at the school seemed eager to voice their concerns.

“I’m 16 and I think you’re childish, you handled it like a child,” one student said of Chappelle’s response to the initial backlash he faced over the special. The student described the comedian as a “bigot.”

Another student approached the microphone and bluntly told Chappelle: “Your comedy kills.” The funnyman purportedly shot back: “N—are killed every day.”
One parent told Politico they were not impressed with the comedian’s choice of language. “As a parent, I have to say I have a real problem,” a father said. “He was being dead serious and using the n-word on the record. What kind of judgment is the school showing to allow that?” they stated.
