Comedian Dave Chappelle doesn’t care about your political correctness. Like no other, Chappelle cuts through the BS to speak the truth.

The 46-year-old was lauded over the weekend at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., winning the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor at The Kennedy Center. There, he delivered some off-the-cuff remarks as he defended free speech and even comedians who he knows who are “very racist.”
“[I] don’t get mad at ‘em, don’t hate on ‘em,” Chappelle said, USA Today reported. “Man, it’s not that serious. The First Amendment is first for a reason. Second Amendment is just in case the First one doesn’t work out.”
At the award ceremony, Chappelle said, “I did not write a speech.” Then he said only America “could produce this many comedians,” especially in the polarized political atmosphere that has enveloped the country.
“We got to let some air out of the ball, man,” he said, The Hill reported. “The country’s getting a little tight. It doesn’t feel like it’s ever felt in my lifetime. So tonight I am honored that my colleagues are here in comedy and in music.”
And Chappelle told The Hill he thinks “political correctness has its place,” adding that he doesn’t intend for his comedy to offend anyone.
“We all want to live in a polite society, we just kind of have to work on the levels of coming to an agreement of what that actually looks like,” he said. “I, personally, am not afraid of other people’s freedom of expression. I don’t use it as a weapon. It just makes me feel better. And I’m sorry if I hurt anybody,” Chappelle said, adding, “Yada, yada, ‘everything I’m supposed to say.”
In his latest comedy special “‘Sticks & Stones,” he defends Michael Jackson and Louis C.K., rips R. Kelly, and blasts social media and the PC movements running rampant in the land today.
He even takes aim at Jussie Smollett, the actor who claimed he was attacked by racist and homophobic Trump supporters.
“He was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack,” Chappelle says. “You see, Juicy Smool-yay is gay and he is black, not just French. Oh, it was a crazy story. Apparently, when he was walking down the street late at night, two white men came out of the shadows with MAGA hats on and beat him up, tied a rope around his neck, called him all kind of n***** and put some bleach on him and ran off into the night.
“This s*** was, like, international news. And everybody was furious, especially in Hollywood. It was all over everybody’s Twitter feed and Instagram page. ‘Justice for Juicy’ and all this s***. The whole country was up in arms. We was talking about it all the time on the news and for some reason, African Americans, we were like oddly quiet. We were so quiet about this s*** that the gay community started accusing the African American community of being homophobic for not supporting him.
“But what they didn’t understand is that we were supporting him — with our silence because we understood that this n***** was clearly lying.”
