The 48-year-old performer took the stage at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on Thursday night for a screening of his documentary. The sold-out crowd also watched performances by Stevie Wonder, Snoop Dogg, Jon Hamm, Nas, Lizzo, poet Amir Sulaiman, Jeff Rose, Talib Kweli and more.
Speaking to the roughly 18,000 people in the crowd while wearing sneakers and a suit, Chappelle touched on the fact that a number of individuals and groups are calling for “The Closer” to be pulled from the streamer because of alleged transphobic comments he made in it, Deadline reports.
“If this is what being cancelled is about, I love it,” Chappelle said to hoots and hollering from fans in attendance, per the outlet.
He added: “I don’t know what to tell you, except I’m a bad motherf—er.” (Read more from “Dave Chappelle Mocks Efforts To Get Him and His New Netflix Special Canceled” HERE)
