Dave Chappelle’s comments on the trans community have been defended by the family of Daphne Dorman, a trans woman who committed suicide in 2019. Following some ‘transphobic’ jokes, Chappelle has received a lot of backlash in recent months. Chappelle made the references in his new Netflix stand-up special, ‘The Closer.’ He was also seen on the show supporting JK Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter series, who was recently slammed for her controversial comments about the trans community. In the show, Dave Chappelle said, “They canceled J.K. Rowling — my God.” “When she effectively stated that gender was a fact, the trans community became enraged and began calling her a TERF. I’m a member of Team TERF. I concur. I agree with you, man. Gender is a proven fact. ”
