Dave Chappelle addresses DaBaby’s homophobic feedback, as well as the industry-wide response to the Blame It on Baby artist’s dangerous remarks, in his new Netflix particular.
Early into The Closer, a portion of which is about to be spoiled on this article for those who haven’t already watched it, Chappelle said he entered the taping with “an objective” associated to his series of specials for the streaming platform.
“I came here tonight because this body of work that I’ve done on Netflix, I’m going to complete,” he said. “All the questions you might have had about all these jokes I’ve said in the last few years, I hope to answer tonight. And I’d like to start by addressing the [LGBTQ] community directly. I want every member of that community to know that I come here tonight in peace and I hope to negotiate the release of DaBaby.”
From there, 48-year-old Chappelle acknowledged that DaBaby, 29, made “a very egregious mistake” along with his Rolling Loud feedback before bringing up a deadly 2018 Walmart capturing alleged to have concerned the artist.
