Celebrities have been heavily blocked as Hollywood has gone “woke.” The Me-Too movement exposed some physical abusers in the top celebrities’ circles, but it also harmed many celebrities who had done nothing wrong.
Dave Chappelle is a well-known comedian and possibly one of the most influential comedians of all time. Chappelle isn’t new to comedy, and he isn’t unique to pushing the envelope. “Every black American is bilingual. All of them. We speak street vocabulary, and we speak ‘job interview.’” Just one of the many jokes that Chappelle has that is controversial, not to mention his show “Chappelle’s Show” from Comedy Central.
Since the Me-Too movement began, there would be no chance that Chappelle would be able to win an award or nomination for an award because of the jokes he’s told, but now it seems that they’ve changed their mind.
Chappelle has had many jokes about women as well as the LGBTQ community. The LGBTQ Community was outraged and tried to cancel the special and cancel Netflix over the special, and even the staff at Netflix protested.
Now, Chappelle is up for a Grammy nomination. It’s a great sign that people don’t care about the woke agenda of the left.
It’s one thing to commit a crime and get charged with that crime. It’s another to be accused and proven innocent or just hurt someone’s feelings. In the great words of comedian Steve Hughes, “When did sticks and stones break my bones become irrelevant?” Hughes also said nothing happens when you’re offended. ‘I went to a comedy show, and the comedian said something about the Lord, and I was offended. And when I woke up in the morning, I had leprosy.’” Hughes was sarcastically calling out people who get so offended by comedians. Comedy is supposed to be controversial and make you think. It’s also supposed to ride the line between offensive and hilarious.
Louis C.K. is also up for a Grammy, which shows how much people care about previous wrongdoings. He was in the spotlight for inappropriate behavior several years ago and is now coming out of bad times and making many moves to push forward.
