Snowflake Night Live: Campus Culture Comes to SNL Over Chappelle Hosting Gig

Snowflake Night Live: Campus Culture Comes to SNL Over Chappelle Hosting Gig

“We’re told that some staff writers are so furious that the comedy superstar — who has made transphobic and homophobic jokes — has been chosen to helm the iconic show that they’re sitting out the episode.”

Some writers at Saturday Night Live are reportedly planning to boycott the show this weekend because comedian Dave Chappelle is set to play host.

This is the sort of behavior you would expect from a sketch comedy show on the campus of UC-Berkeley. The writing staff members who are planning to boycott are no different than college students who might claim that they feel ‘unsafe’ because of Chappelle’s presence.

It’s ironic, considering that it is Chappelle who has been physically attacked for doing comedy.

The New York Post’s Page Six reports:

‘SNL’ staff writers boycott over Dave Chappelle’s hosting gig

There’s unrest at 30 Rock, Page Six hears, over the decision to sign up Dave Chappelle to host “Saturday Night Live” this weekend.

We’re told that some staff writers are so furious that the comedy superstar — who has made transphobic and homophobic jokes — has been chosen to helm the iconic show that they’re sitting out the episode.

“They’re not going to do the show,” an insider told Page Six. “But none of the actors are boycotting.”

But Chappelle’s rep told us that there was nothing to suggest that there was a boycott when they attended writers’ meetings this week.

This completely gives away the left’s game at SNL. I have contended for years that SNL no longer functions as a comedy show, but rather as a Democrat super PAC. The show viciously mocks Republicans week after week, but when a comedian who has told a few trans jokes is set to host, staff writers are suddenly concerned about the danger of comedy.

One of the staffers who is ‘nonbinary’ reportedly said that transphobia is like “murder.”

Bobby Burack writes at OutKick:

Show writer Celeste Yim posted the following on her Instagram Stories, hoping it’d their bosses to replace Chappelle as host.

“I’m trans and non-binary. I use they/them pronouns. Transphobia is murder and it should be condemned.”

Got that? Chappelle is “murdering” people by including all groups in his bits.

Chappelle personifies the exact voice “SNL” and Hollywood have worked so diligently to silence. And he’s winning.

I don’t even watch the show anymore, it stopped being funny years ago, but this story is noteworthy in that it shows how progressive politics and culture destroy comedy.

Dave Chappelle is not a conservative or a fan of the right, yet the left wants to silence him.

Chappelle can be hilariously funny and he is very successful.
SNL writers are notoriously unfunny, boring and a bunch of losers.
Jealousy much?

On another note: language matters.
I have seen/heard Dave Chappelle making jokes ABOUT trans people and gay people. Also ABOUT Black people, ABOUT White people, ABOUT racists, about pretty much any group of people. I don’t think I have heard any of his homophobic or “transphobic” jokes. If anyone knows where to find them, please let me know.
However, I suspect that they are talking about the same jokes ABOUT gay and “trans” people that I already heard.

    Yes, it’s the same jokes. Remember that to them any comment or reaction other than enthusiastic agreement with their ideology is an attack.

    Heck, in the comedy special he did that started the more recent noise from the Alphabet Gang crowd he spoke supportively of a trans friend, but because he also poked fun at trans people (which, as you note, is hardly unique, nor limited to only “acceptable” or “unacceptable” targets) that doesn’t matter.

I’m so sick of this ‘trans’ crap. You are not ‘transphobic’ if you state a basic scientific fact. If you have a penis you’re a dude! This isn’t debatable. You can pretend to be whoever the hell you want but it doesn’t make it real. You are in fact a science denier. How do you like them apples!

    Them: You’re denying my truth!

    Me: I’m not denying your truth. You’re denying basic scientific facts.

      YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH!

        Isn’t what makes many jokes funny is they use a bit of truth?

          Another Voice in reply to JohnSmith100. | November 11, 2022 at 5:14 pm

          Absolutely! It’s in the delivery and context which makes it so funny…and that takes a really good comedian..and their personal vulnerability as was Robin Williams to the self-deprecating Richard Pryor. They turn weaknesses of the human nature and turn it around to see it within ourselves and our own humanity. And Damn that is Funny.

I’m SNL-phobic and will not watch but I hope Dave makes it funny for a change

    I suspect that with all the woke writers on strike it may be the funniest episode of the decade.

      Dimsdale in reply to henrybowman. | November 11, 2022 at 6:44 pm

      Leftists are infamously humorless and infantile, so losing some of the wokerati will only improve the product.

      I might actually watch this Saturday.

Dave Chappelle is not a conservative or a fan of the right, yet the left wants to silence him.
——
He’s certainly not a conservative and though he makes fun of black culture, he’s married to an Asian woman, he comes right out and blasts whites with more of an “edge”
Yet he lives in a small white town, go figure,. He doesn’t want his kids to succumb to the violence that is the black cities

    JohnSmith100 in reply to gonzotx. | November 11, 2022 at 4:38 pm

    “He doesn’t want his kids to succumb to the violence that is the black cities”

    If only there were more like him. Shit child rearing is a huge part of why many children turn out poorly.

Lots of that going around. Plenty of folks pitching a fit when they don’t get their way these days. It’s narcissism. The folks doing it refuse to concede the possibility that they might be wrong or that any person could hold another opinion in goodfaith. They disregard facts and put their emotions and desires first. It’s essential to their psyche that they degrade dissenting views because if they admit that opposing views are valid their own self worth loses in the zero sum contest of their own devising.

“…that they’re sitting out the episode.”

In other words, SNL will be funny for once…

“We’re told that some staff writers are so furious that the comedy superstar — who has made transphobic and homophobic jokes — has been chosen to helm the iconic show that they’re sitting out the episode.”

Three possible consequences:
1. Fire all “staff writers” that chose to “sit out the episode”.
2. Refuse to pay these “staff writers” their salary for their choice to “sit out the episode”
3. Both #1 and #2

But I know that certainly isn’t going to happen.

It’s not campus culture anymore.

It’s leftist culture, and it’s here to stay.

fire them.

Dave should just run the most popular sketches from the Chappelle Show and provide behind the scenes commentary in between. It’d be the funniest SNL episode in 25 years.

Going out on a limb here, but the entire cast could be replaced with Chappelle and the show would be funny.

    Nohbody in reply to technerd. | November 13, 2022 at 12:50 am

    I haven’t really watched for many years now, but the few bits I’ve seen here and there since then make me think that you could replace them with a rock (and not a fancy one like quartz, your ordinary garden stone) and it would be more funny.

So? Now maybe the show will have a few laughs.

The SNL writers checked out a long time ago. Once funny now sad and bitter.

SNL’s goal is “Everything in the State, nothing outside the State, nothing against the State.” Now that the last election is over, wait for it.

Subotai Bahadur

Wow, wonder if we should compare Chappelle to Trump?
So many here want to toss out one yet embrace the other.

Putting aside the concepts of being trans or nonbinary… How the fuck can you be both at once?

“I’m trans and nonbinary”

Those are two conflicting things. Even if it was reality you couldn’t be both.

    henrybowman in reply to Chewbacca. | November 11, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    She’s also on the spectrum, but in her case it’s a möbius spectrum. Understand now?

    diver64 in reply to Chewbacca. | November 12, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    Non Binary is not they/them. What that is properly called is “it”. Your a self described it and good for you. Now go cry in a corner of a woke cup of tears.

Either way, I’m not watching it because I never do.

Somewhere out there, Andrew Dice Clay is watching this and laughing his ass off.

SNL writers are sitting this one out. Of course they are. Chappelle’s in town.

An actual comedian that is funny has the nerve to crash their woke show. If SNL would like to be funny again all of the writers could quit and Chapelle can just do an hour of Comedy to show them how it is done. Maybe then someone would watch that train wreck again.
