Last month, the New York Times went after comedian Dave Chappelle for not having “adjusted his material” to make it more suitable for today’s woke audiences. Well, Chappelle’s got a new comedy special on Netflix, and VICE does not approve:

Taylor Hosking concludes:

Chappelle has always been a daredevil comedian willing to take a controversial stance or downplay a serious controversy for laughs, including his early-2000s skits about R.
