*Earlier this week, comedian #DaveChapelle visited his alma mater, D.C.’s #DukeEllingtonSchooloftheArts where students expected him to apologize for his comments on the Netflix special, “The Closer.”⁠

According to Politico Playbook, many students had a few things to say to the comedian. One attendee at the event said, “I’m 16 and I think you’re childish, you handled it like a child,” adding that Chapelle is a “bigot.”⁠

Chapelle responded “My friend, with all due respect, I don’t believe you could make one of the decisions I have to make on a given day.”⁠

Over the years Chapelle has faced years of criticism and accusations that he is “transphobic” for many of his stand-up jokes, especially following the Netflix release of “The Closer,” in which he made comments like “gender is a fact.”⁠

The trans community and several Netflix employees were not receptive to the special, although it received positive reviews from the general public.
