Roommates, it’s been over a week and social media with various celebrities are still screaming about Dave Chappell’s latest Netflix stand-up comedy special now and now Safari has decided to think about his thoughts. On Twitter, Safari not only defended Dave Chappell, he also questioned why mainstream media outlets like CNN were covering it in the beginning.
Safari went straight to why he believes Dave Chappell is only doing his job as a comedian, writes:
“The work of a comedian is funny, offensive and disrespectful. Why are people surprised and stunned when they say what they say? Especially Dave Chappell. Doesn’t he remember Dave Chappell? What he uses on his shows? I can’t believe it. That they are talking against him on CNN.
As previously reported, Netflix stands firmly behind Dave Chappell despite calls to withdraw from its exclusive, “Closure” streaming service. In a recent company-wide memo, Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarados explained why the company supports Chappell’s freedom of speech.
“I wanted to follow up on‘ The Closer ’- a recent special from Dave Chappell – as many of you have followed QBR by asking Tubby what to say to your teams. It never feels good when people are hurting our colleagues in particular, so I wanted to give you some extra context. You should be more aware that some talent will join a third party and ask us to remove the show the next day, which we are not going to do, ”the memo read in part.
