Caitlyn Jenner delivers a message online that supports the latest message by comedian Dave Chappelle about the backlash surrounding his Netflix special entitled “The Closer.”
In defending Dave Chappelle, Caitlyn Jenner is now receiving backlash for the stance taken on Twitter that sees nothing wrong with Chappelle’s take on the controversy. Chappelle has been protested by Netflix employees who are offended by his last installment of his lucrative deal with the streaming platform. The partnership between Chappelle and the streaming platform has been quite lucrative, and while his controversial jokes have existed for the entirety of his career, Chappelle’s most recent line of quips did not sit well with the LGBTQIA community.
The Closer has been the subject of think-pieces and great debates, and now Caitlyn Jenner has entered the chat with a response that did not seem to surprise the public.
Although Jenner is transgender, she often takes anti-LGBTQIA approaches to sociopolitical discourse. This time, she shared a video of Chappelle’s post-The Closer response to transgender Netflix workers walking out of the job, as well as people coming down on him for being a TERF. Jenner co-signed Chappelle’s stand-up and explanation, blaming the controversy on woke culture.
“Dave Chappelle is 100% right. This isn’t about the LGBTQ movement. It’s about woke cancel culture run amok, trying to silence free speech,” she tweeted. “We must never yield or bow to those who wish to stop us from speaking our minds.” The reactions to her tweet have been scathing, to say the least, so check it all out below for yourself.

I'm honestly surprised that you're siding with Dave not because you agree with his stances, but because he essentially called you gross. Yuck.

Thank You! I love a woman that speaks with conviction and with a clear-head..idc what no one says I love you for standing up for Dave, for being able to see that he is an ally to your community not a foe…even if he disagrees with some things, love is not lost. 💃🏿🙏🏾❤
