Superstar comedian Dave Chappelle is one of many people out there who does not believe Michael Jackson sexually abused Wade Robson and James Safechuck as detailed in the harrowing documentary “Leaving Neverland.”
The difference is that Chappelle is obviously unafraid of the intense backlash that could come his way for saying “I don’t believe these motherf——-.”
According to TMZ, Chappelle went entirely there during his upcoming Sticks & Stones comedy special on Netflix that also reportedly saw the comedian defend Kevin Hart and his LBGTQ controversy that forced him to bow out as host of the 2019 Academy Awards. Chappelle also sets the record straight about allegedly refusing to contribute to another nuclear documentary, Surviving R. Kelly, that completely obliterated R. Kelly’s career and life.
Leaving Neverland, on the other hand, was described as being revolting to the point that it physically sickened journalists who attended the Sundance Film Festival near Salt Lake City back in January. It has had tremendous repercussions on the King of Pop’s legacy, as several radio stations in other countries have banned playing his music. Even MTV toyed with the idea that they would remove Jackson’s name from the Video Vanguard Award at its annual MTV VMAs.
In Sticks & Stones, Chappelle also touched upon Dream Hampton accusing him of skipping out on contributing to Surviving R. Kelly.
Chapelle said he only had one casual conversation about R. Kelly and it was never broached again. Therefore Chapelle said in the special, according to TMZ, that he forgot about it until his name flung around by Hampton for allegedly not speaking out about R. Kelly.
Chappelle said on the Sticks & Stones special, however, that he couldn’t speak about Kelly because “I don’t know this n—- at all.”
