Dave Chappelle’s new Netflix special, “The Dreamer,” continues his trend of poking fun at the LGBTQ community, sparking controversy and backlash.

Chappelle’s persistent use of anti-LGBTQ humor has raised questions about his motivations, with some suggesting it may be for profit or due to an obsession with non-heterosexual people.

Others argue that he may be attempting to make a larger point about comedy and identity. (Trending: Donald Trump Breaks His Silence After Major Court Win)

“I was very disappointed because I wanted to meet Jim Carrey and I had to pretend he was Andy Kaufman all afternoon. It was clearly Jim Carrey. I could look at him and clearly see it was Jim Carrey,” Chappelle said.

“That’s how trans people make me feel.”

Chappelle then says he desires “to repair my relationship with the transgender community, ‘cause I don’t want them to think that I don’t like them.”

“Cause I know that gays love plays. It’s a very sad play, but it’s moving. It’s about a Black transgender woman whose pronoun is, sadly, ‘——.’ It’s a tear-jerker. At the end of the play, she dies of loneliness ‘cause white liberals don’t know how to speak to her. It’s sad.”

“I’m not ——- with those people anymore … I ain’t saying —- about trans people. Maybe three or four times tonight, but that is it. I’m tired of talking about them.”

The special also reveals a self-absorbed dimension to Chappelle’s act, leading to concerns about the impact on his legacy.

The combination of anti-LGBTQ humor and narcissism may have lasting consequences for his audience and reputation.
