Dave Chappelle recently hit a minor setback when protestors essentially forced his Minneapolis show to switch venues — but Fat Joe says it’s time Dave’s critics find a new target.
We caught up with the Don Cartagena Monday in NYC on Monday, and he said comedians like Dave Chappelle always intend for their jokes to hit the funny bones … without striking any emotional nerves.
Call it a game of Comedy Operation … Joe acknowledges there are sensitive subjects to address — especially within the LGBTQ+ community — but he feels laughter is the best medicine in these sick times.
Minnesota protestors, particularly angry over Dave’s Netflix special lineage, successfully thwarted the comedic legend from doing his show at First Avenue, forcing him to move to a new venue with just a few hours notice. Joe wishes those angry about Dave would understand love outweighs hate when it comes to comedy.
