Dave Chappelle Defended By Sisters Of His Trans Friend Mentioned In ‘The Closer’

She did not find his jokes rude, crude, off-coloring, off-putting, anything. Why would her family be offended?” In a text message to the Daily Beast, Dorman’s sister, Becky, wrote, “Daphne was in awe of Dave’s graciousness. Daphne understood humor and comedy—she was not offended. She thought his jokes were funny.
Dorman's younger sister, Brandy, agreed and called Chappelle an "LGBTQ ally."
Chappelle is under fire for controversial comments he made about the trans community in The Closer.
In the special, Chappelle spoke about his friendship with Daphne Dorman, a trans woman and a fellow comedian from the San Francisco area. She died by suicide in 2019.
The family of a woman prominently mentioned by comedian Dave Chappelle in his new Netflix special, The Closer, has spoken out in his defense.
Rowling has been labeled a “TERF” (trans-exclusionary radical feminist) for her comments on gender. In the special and in other comments, Chappelle has touched on some sore points with the trans community. He noted the cancellation of Harry Potter author JK Rowling as one particular injustice.
"And he was a hell of a woman," Chappelle said.” /> The Closer spends a lot of time on Dorman, a comedian friend of Chappelle's who opened for him. Chappelle closes the story by saying he set up a trust fund for Dorman's daughter, and hoped to speak with her someday that he knew her father.
Chappelle added that “gender is a fact” and that “every human being in this room, every human being on Earth, had to pass through the legs of a woman to be on Earth.”
“Effectually she said gender was fact, the trans community got mad as shit, they started calling her a Terf…I’m Team TERF.” “They canceled JK Rowling – my God,” he said in The Closer.
