After several days of widespread public backlash on social media, phone calls and emails from disapproving patrons, performers and venue staff, First Avenue canceled the Dave Chappelle show it had scheduled for Wednesday night, just hours before the comedian was scheduled to take the stage. Chappelle has a reputation of mocking transgender people in his standup routines, which critics say has no place in a venue that’s LGBTQ-owned, hosts annual Pride parties and sells branded merch with rainbow accents in June.
At this point all it takes are a handful of wokesters to cry foul, claim online that whatever you’re doing will ‘kill’ them and you’re pretty much done.
