It sounds insane but not so much when you see how much worth they bring to the table, especially since they were well ahead of their time with streaming and games. The studios are greedy AF and I truly believe that we’re going to see a time where people opt for less mainstream platforms such as YouTube, Spotify, and Netflix. If I’m making home repair videos why would I sign a $100,000/year contract with Home & Gardens channel when I can stay independent, maintain my intellectual property and businesses, and make multiples of that number on my own? That’s basically what has happened with Chip & Joanna Gaines, and the same applies to Trey & Matt.

It’s called Groupthink and it’s a very real psychological phenomenon, and is objectively dangerous.

This is why far-right and far-left are equally stupid.

Edit: too many responses for me to go individually, but to a bulk of you I’m gonna suggest reading up on groupthink before assuming I have a left or right agenda. I’d also like to emphasize that I said far left and right and I’m standing by my initial assessment.

Here’s a good source for groupthink. https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/basics/groupthink

Also, a final parting thought: the combo of far left and right leaves very little common ground in the middle. We’re already living this recipe for civil disaster so please don’t @ me with which is worse. It’s obvious which is worse but they’re both dangerous to us as a country.

I’m all for people living the way they feel best as far as gender/sexual orientation. Go for whatever pleases you. But people need to grow up and get thicker skin. It’s become ridiculous. It is funny to me, for example, when a trans man gets pregnant. Why? Because it’s surprising, fairly new and a bit confusing. I don’t want to prevent the person from anything, I wouldn’t ridicule or be in any way offensive toward them, but the surprise of it makes it funny to me. And that’s ok.

His most recent special he tells the story of a trans comedian who he was friends with that ended up killing themselves for receiving online hate for standing up for comedians jokes.

His point was that the trans community says Dave chapelle is punching down at trans people; Dave's point is that the trans community is punching down at comedians. Basically their community is more powerful than the community of comedians. I.e. the trans comedians killings themselves because of harassment from the trans community.

u/NightmareStatus Oct 20 '21

Ahhh yes the bit at the end of his special about Daphne. Yea, that shit hit me hard. I'm inclined to agree with what he said. I don't know the community well enough to provide anecdotal statements about it, but after what he said, I'd agree. Good point.

303

u/Sexpistolz Oct 20 '21

That first bit gets glossed over. I just watched the special last night. Based off Reddit and the controversy I was expecting a bill burr style rant of trans jokes the entire time. No. He didn’t even get into it until about 2/3rds. And half the jokes he told during the story, wasn’t even directed at the trans community.

Whole special was hilarious.

108

u/NoFlexZoneNYC Oct 20 '21

For those who don’t know, Dave had a close friend named Daphne who was trans. He had her open for him and mentored her career. When he came under fire in the past about trans jokes, Daphne spoke up for him. Because of that, she immediately found herself being attacked by the very community she was trying to support. The community to which she felt she belonged. 6 days after this started, Daphne took her own life. This obviously hit Dave hard and was one of the motivations for his special.

Dave Chappelle, as callous as he may be, is completely right here. The world has gone absolutely mad and a vocal minority have become exceedingly dangerous - even to themselves.

115

u/Javamallow Oct 20 '21

Yeah it was one of those things that, even though anecdotal, you go "wow that sucks.... wait, that really sucks". It was a really well done performance imo even agreeing or disagreeing with the position.

Did you see how he broke the sign and then immediately starts yelling about the guy having a weapon? He obviously knew what he was doing. But he isn't clever. He's just an asshole and he's part of the problem.

When people act like that and get away with it, other people see it, and think its ok to be shitty like that too, with that smug I'm so clever attitude.

222

u/ColinMcGraw Oct 20 '21

Watched the Chapelle special and think he’s right; he actually said he supported things like gender-neutral bathrooms but was against a cancel culture that gets outraged and forms a mob at the tiniest perceived slight. He said sometimes people lack understanding the reason for their anger but just repeating the chants of the mob around them.

In this case, the angry mob proved Chapelle’s point by ripping away a sign saying “I like Dave Chapelle”.

The counterprotestor wasn’t calling for any sort of discrimination, but simply proclaimed “jokes are funny” and for that, the mob shouted over him, accused him of brandishing a weapon (which is lie that could be seen as an incitement of violence), and they got in his face shaking noisemakers and looking intimidating.

Kudos for the counterprotestor’s self-restraint.

In general, I do think people are oversensitive nowadays in ways that make everyone around them live in fear of life-ruining retaliation for simply expressing an opinion a group disagrees with. It’s nuts.

I don’t think all of Daves jokes are funny, but I have a lot of respect for the fact that with him, no one, and no subject is taboo. THATS EQUALITY!!! Funny when certain groups that want to be be recognized and equal, can’t take it when they’re treated as such.

Which, if you’ve seen the special, it’s what it was all about.

This is ridiculous. I support gay, trans, bi, or whatever anyone wants to be. But they are literally protesting comedy. Jokes...

Religion, race, sex, and even the N word isn't off limits in comedy. Sometimes comedy that offends us can offer some self-reflection as well.

To think that any group thinks they somehow can't be joked about is kind of unbelievable. I watched the special and Dave made some pretty out there and offensive jokes. But protesting and demanding that it be taken down because you don't like it is on another level. If you don't like it, simply don't watch it or any of Dave's stuff again.

That comedy special had no negative effects on the LGBTQ movement, but this kind of reaction certainly does. People will have a harder time taking you seriously when you protest about real issues after you protest about jokes. This is is an awful reaction, and I hope the people in that group realize that before they make themselves look worse.

To be fair it was really one joke. The first wasn’t meant to be funny, only to set up the second one later.

Like South Park until SCIENTOLOGY was used as fodder for an episode.

Then it was too much for Isaac Hayes.

The whole special was basically about how he finds it weird that people get so mad when he jokes about Trans topics.

The special starts with a joke about how he liked when priests sucked his dick as a child...

u/MisterPublic Oct 20 '21

I don't think anybody is going to be able to point you to an "offending joke". Cause there wasn't really one. I encourage anyone who has questions to watch the special and decide for yourself if it was offensive, because people being told one thing or another through a second hand source is what got us in this position in the first place.

u/DrMaxCoytus Oct 20 '21

Is all the hullabaloo really about whether it was offensive? Like, who cares if it's offensive? It's a comedy special.

Yes that is what the hullabaloo is about. I watched it and what I got from it was Chappelle doesn't really have an issue with trans people, he has a problem with being called anti-trans because he says negative things about the LGBTQ community that have nothing to do with their gender identity or sexual orientation.

Dave has been saying for quite a while that the LGBTQxyz activists have become too thin-skinned, esoteric and precious ... feigning outrage over minor slights when real discrimination exists and all oppressed groups need to work together battling the real threats

u/Elected_Dictator Oct 20 '21

He’s not just a comedian, he’s worked his way to possibly being The Comedian. Which is prolly why he gets so much more hate, he’s now perceived as the Elite, rich man making fun of the oppressed. Which is part of his whole theme, a black dude is all of a sudden the oppressor.

One way to demonize your protest...violate a persons 1st Amendment right by tearing their sign up.

I get people being offended or disagreeing with Chappelle, but a comedy special does NOT require this level of emergency. This is a full level moral panic.
