Dave Chappelle who has always been known for his vocal outbursts, has released a Netflix Comedy special titled “Sticks and Stones”, where he slammed the accusers of Michael Jackson.
The King of Pop was recently accused of child molestation by Wade Robson and James Safechuck recently in HBO documentary “Leaving Neverland”, detailing the alleged child abuse they suffered in the hands of Michael Jackson.
David Chappelle in Jackson’s defense said “I’m going to say something I’m not allowed to say, but I gotta be real: I don’t believe these motherf***ers,”
He continued, “I don’t think he did it, but you know what? Even if he did do it… you know what I mean? I mean it’s Michael Jackson. I know more than half the people in this room have been molested in their lives, but it was no goddamn Michael Jackson, was it? ”
Dave Chappelle is facing a heavy backlash after the release of the comedy special, as he is seen as a victim shamer and enabler of sexual harassment. Dave has always been known for making controversial statements especially against the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Queer community (LGBTQ).
The 46 year-old is the recipient of numerous awards such as two Emmy awards and two Grammy awards for his contribution to the world of comedy.
