Dave Chappelle clashes with students at former school after being called a ‘bigot’
The Independent says Comedian Dave Chappelle made a surprise visit to his former school in Washington DC on Tuesday (23 November), where he faced criticism from current students.
The Duke Ellington School of the Arts had postponed his planned appearance at a fundraiser over threats of a student walk-out, following Chappelle’s controversial comments about the trans community in his Netflix special The Closer.
According to a report in Politico, though, Chappelle’s appearance ended up going ahead and was attended by 580 students.
