Fat Joe Defends Dave Chappelle, Says His Jokes Go After Everyone

Dave Chappelle recently hit a minor setback when protestors essentially forced his Minneapolis show to switch venues — but Fat Joe thinks Dave’s critics should realize he’s an equal opportunity offender.

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 emotional nerves. He also feels Dave tells jokes about everyone, not one particular group more than another.

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 for most issues.

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.

Joe will be jumping into the comedy world himself … via TV, where his autobiographical series will be directed by “black-ish” creator Kenya Barris. Plus, he’s got his Fox animated series opposite Susan Sarandon!!!
