Caitlyn Jenner spoke out in support of Dave Chappelle as the comedian faces criticism for comments he made about the trans community in his new Netflix special, “The Closer.”
“Dave Chappelle is 100% right. This isn’t about the LGBTQ movement,” Jenner wrote in a tweet.
“It’s about woke cancel culture run amok, trying to silence free speech. We must never yield or bow to those who wish to stop us from speaking our minds,” she added.

Chappelle’s comedy special premiered on the streaming service on October 5 and has since faced criticism.
“Gender is a fact,” Chappelle said during the special. “Every human being in this room, every human being on earth, had to pass through the legs of a woman to be on earth.”
In other clips from the special he made jokes about trans woman and defended JK Rowling, who has promoted anti-trans views.
In a five-minute video posted on Instagram on Monday, Chappelle said he would not be “bending to anyone’s demands.”
“I said what I said, and boy, I heard what you said. My God, how could I not? You said you want a safe working environment at Netflix. It seems like I’m the only one that can’t go to the office anymore,” he said.
