Nonsense. "The First Avenue" cancels Chappelle event hours before due to offensive material.

https://www.cnn.com/2022/...index.html

Very sad that a venue that at one time housed "freedom of expression" now does something like this. Hmm I wonder what PRINCE would think popped into my head as he was one that felt comedians like Chris Rock were artists and above it all with censoring, he even told Chris this in that interview on VH1. This again is my issue with cancel culture, "twitter mobs"its actually a form of bullying from a force that says its anti bully. Most of the people that have an issue with Dave dont even know what they are talking about, some admitted to NOT seeing this Netflix special or any of his FULL routines. This does remind me of Norm Macdonald who was someone who got heat alot for things he said and he clearly did not give a shit what you thought. BUT he even "punked" that fake apology thing when he a few years before his death went on the View to "apologize" as he did it he was tossing mints in his mouth and being so sarcastic even the women of the view couldnt pick up on it. The First Avenue a place that supported alot of musicians and their expressions should be ashamed to be honest.
