Dave Chappelle slams Michael Jackson's accusers in controversial Netflix special
Dave Chappelle makes sick jokes about child molestation and says he doesn’t believe Michael Jackson’s accusers in his new comedy special.
The stand-up legend’s Netflix special Sticks & Stones began streaming on the service on Monday 26 August, and in the opening 20 minutes, he takes aim at ‘cancel culture’ and uses Michael Jackson as an example.
Chappelle said: ‘This is the worst time ever to be a celebrity. You’re gonna be finished. Everyone’s doomed. Michael Jackson has been dead for 10 years, and this n**** has two new cases.’
He then told the crowd not to watch Leaving Neverland, the documentary in which allegations of molestation from Wade Robson and James Safechuck against the late star are explored, saying: ‘Don’t watch it. … It’s f***ing gross. I felt like HBO was sticking baby d***s in my ears for four hours straight.’
The comedian went on: ‘I’m gonna say something that I’m not allowed to say. But I gotta be real. I don’t believe these motherf***ers. I do not believe them.’
The audience began cheering and whistling, as Dave joked that he was a ‘victim-blamer’ – saying if he was told Chris Brown beat up Rihanna, he would reply: ‘Well, what did she do?’
Chappelle continued: ‘I don’t think he did it, but you know what? Even if he did do it … you know what I mean? I mean, it’s Michael Jackson. I know more than half the people in this room have been molested in their lives, but it wasn’t no goddamn Michael Jackson, was it? This kid got his d*** sucked by the King of Pop.
‘You know how good it must have felt to go to school the next day after that s***?’
Chappelle added that he didn’t believe the men’s accusations because ‘why not Macaulay Culkin’, joking: ‘I’m not a paedophile, but if I was, Macaulay Culkin’s the first kid I’m f***ing — I’ll tell you that right now.’
Robson and Safechuck allege that they were abused as children by Jackson on various trips and at his famous ranch Neverland. Culkin insisted that he was never abused by the star, who he was close friends with as a child.
Jackson’s estate categorically denies the allegations made by Robson and Safechuck.
Elsewhere in the stand-up special, the 46-year-old defended Kevin Hart, who stepped down from hosting the Oscars after historic homophobic tweets were found on his Twitter account.
Chappelle said: ‘I don’t know what you know about Kevin, but I know that Kevin Hart is damn-near perfect. As close to perfect as anybody I’ve ever seen. In fact, Kevin is precisely four tweets shy of being perfect.’
And Chappelle also joked about the transgender community, claiming that a trans person is the equivalent of a Chinese person being stuck in a black man’s body – a ‘joke’ accompanied by an impression of a Chinese person.
Sticks & Stones is now streaming on Netflix.
