WATCH: Comedian Damon Wayans Says Dave Chappelle “Freed The Slaves” With New Netflix Special

Damon Wayans, a comedian and actor, applauded Dave Chappelle’s Netflix special “The Closer” last week, saying the politically incorrect content “freed the slaves,” referring to other comedians feeling compelled to perform within the Left’s parameters or risk being canceled.

“I feel like Dave freed the slaves,” Wayans told TMZ. “The comedians, we were slaves to PC [political correctness] culture and he just, you know, as an artist he’s Van Gogh. Cut his ear off, he’s trying to tell us it’s okay.”

Wayans asserted that while he has always felt “free” from the Left’s constraints, he observes how other comedians are being restricted by fear of being “canceled.”

Additionally, the 61-year-old underlined the notion of free speech, stating that one is not truly free if one is only speaking what they believe they have to say and avoiding taboo territory out of fear.

“I just feel like [Chappelle’s] saying, ‘All that I have, I’m not afraid to lose it for the sake of freedom of speech,” the actor said.

“You can’t edit yourself,” Wayans continued. “Comedians, we’re like … Mercedes makes a great car. But they gotta crash a lot of them before they perfect it.”

“Someone needs to look us in the eye and say, ‘You’re no longer free in this country. You’re not free to say what you want, you say what we want you to say — otherwise we will cancel you,’” Wayans declared.  “That’s the discussion we should have.”

Chappelle, in his recently released Netflix comedy special “The Closer,” once again defied the Left’s stupid nonsense about transgenders.

The comedian stated explicitly in the presentation that “gender is a fact” and backed “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling, who has come under fire for defying progressive gender theory.

The Washington Examiner reported on some of Chapelle’s commentary from the Netflix special [Warning: language]:

Additionally, the comic addressed the outrage directed at women who do not conform to the Left’s gender ideology, including Rowling.

According to the Examiner, Rowling identified herself as a “TERF,” or “trans-exclusionary radical feminist.” Typically, transgender activists use the word to denigrate women who reject the idea that biological males can be female. Chappelle declared in the special that he is glad to be “team TERF,” the Examiner reported.

“Any of you who have ever watched me know that I have never had a problem with transgender people. If you listen to what I’m saying, clearly, my problem has always been with white people,” Chappelle later joked in “The Closer.”
