You Can’t Cancel Him: Dave Chappelle Defends the Second Amendment

Published

on

On Sunday, Dave Chappelle strongly defended the Second Amendment in front of  a Washington crowd filled with stars.

The renowned comedian accepted the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor at The Kennedy Center. The Washington Times reported that he delivered impromptu remarks defending the right to free speech and comedians he knows who are supposedly “very racist.”

“[I] don’t get mad at ‘em, don’t hate on ‘em,” he said, according to a USA Today report. “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.”

Chappelle argued that only America “could produce this many comedians”. However, he believes that comedians are needed more than ever due to the tense political climate America is going through.

“We got to let some air out of the ball, man,” he said, according to a report from The Hill. “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.”

“I love this job,” he continued. “It saved my life.”

Before his speech, Chappelle told The Hill that he believes “political correctness has its place” and he apologized if his comedy has “hurt anybody” in the past.

“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 stated. “I, personally, am not afraid of other people’s freedom of expression.”
