Teen described Dave Chappelle as a ‘bigot’ at his old high school

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.”.

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.

A student approached the microphone and bluntly told Chappelle: “Your comedy kills.” The funnyman purportedly shot back: “N—are killed every day.”


Another student said, “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.”

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.
