Dave Chappelle Set To Host SNL – Speaks Mind On LGBT, Racism, HB-2, & Presidency.

As we were watching Saturday Night Live this weekend, we were a little shocked to see that Dave Chappelle will be hosting next week.  My brother and I both exclaimed "WHHHAAAAATTT????"  Where was this man coming from and why was he hosting. We're still not sure, but we will be watching. 

This week the host was Benedict Cumberbatch.  We weren't expecting anything shocking from him or the skits and that's what happened. But what will Dave Chappelle bring to the mix?

Recently he equated voting for Hillary would be like sleeping with Halle Berry and having her fart in his face.  "I'm still going to go for it," he said. "But I wish she hadn't done that thing."

Well that is an odd way to put it, but I can see where he is coming from.

 

Comedian Dave Chappelle took the stage Friday night at the Cutting Room in New York and delivered a 60-minute set that focused on slamming Hillary Clinton and supporting Donald Trump, the Observer reported. Chappelle, set to host Saturday Night Live on Nov. 12, also made comments about LGBTQ and women's rights that deeply misunderstood intersectionality.  

Chappelle also said some controversial things about women's rights and LGBTQ rights. Speaking about activists, he said, "They should not be having that conversation in front of black people. You go ahead and feel something about your rights. But if you're putting sexism and homophobia and transphobia in front of racism, you should be ashamed of yourself."

Chappelle did slam North Carolina's controversial HB2 law, which required people to use the restroom that corresponds with their gender assigned at birth rather than their gender identity. 

"If you need to show your birth certificate to take a dump at a Wal-Mart in North Carolina, that's insane," he said. 

However, Chappelle also said he would not want to use a urinal next to a "woman with a dick." 

Chappelle did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but his representation spoke with Variety, insisting that Chappelle was not pro-Trump. 

"Dave is disgusted by the tone of the election and especially by the idea that his comedy would be misconstrued to defend [Donald T]rump," Chappelle's representative said. "His comedy show blasted both candidates." – mic.com

 

It looks like this next SNL is going to be an interesting one.  After all, he is Rick James, bitch.

What do you think of his comments?  He does speak his mind.
