Dave Chappelle has finally reacted to his old high school’s refusal to invite him to its fundraiser.
Recently, Dave did a 15-minute stand-up in which he responds to his high school alma mater. He said, “They’re canceling stuff I didn’t even want to do. If you think you’re mad at me — remember, I didn’t disinvite you from anything.”
Recently, the school cancelled Dave’s invite to the fundraiser following the backlash Dave has received from his recent comedy special The Closer. The school’s statement said, “As a learning institution that champions inclusivity, diversity, equity and belonging, we care deeply about protecting the well-being and dignity of every member of our student body, faculty and community. We also believe moving forward with the event, originally scheduled for November 23, 2021, without first addressing questions and concerns from members of the Ellington community, would be a missed opportunity for a teachable moment.”
Do you think the school is wrong about its decision?
