In his latest stand-up comedy special, Dave Chapelle is pissing everyone off EXCEPT the people handling the Michael Jackson estate.
They’re some of the only people who see some truth in the comedian’s taboo sense of humor.
In his Netflix comedy special, Dave knocks em’ dead with his interpretation of the Netherland victims. He calls them “liars,” and insists that they knew what they’re getting themselves into—despite them being just kids at the time.
“I don’t believe these motherf***ers”
“I know it seems harsh, but somebody’s gotta teach these kids — no such thing as a free trip to Hawaii. He’s going to want to look at your butthole or something.”
Dave is referring to the alleged sexual assault victims, James Safechuck and Wade Robson. Both men claim to have been sexually assaulted by Michael Jackson when they went to visit him at his home on Netherland Ranch. They each were young boys at the time.
And now that they’re older, they certainly don’t find anything funny about Dave working them into his stand-up routine. They believe he’s being insensitive and making it harder for other sexual abuse victims to come forth.
However, Michael Jackson’s estate disagrees with the two alleged survivors. They agree with Dave when he calls them “liars.”
In a statement, John Branca, co-executor of MJ’s estate, shares his take, via TMZ.
“We agree with Dave Chappelle – these guys are damn liars. After years of exploiting Michael’s generosity, they waited until he was gone and unable to defend himself before accusing him. They did this in secrecy. They did not do any independent investigation.”
“They did not verify the stories. They didn’t talk to anyone because they did not want another side. This isn’t R. Kelly – there are no videos. This isn’t Harvey Weinstein, there aren’t multiple accusers.”
Dave Chapelle’s newest comedy special is called Sticks & Stones. It addresses other touchy subjects like the LGBTQ movement and R. Kelly, but for this particular subject, MJ’s estate is happy to have someone on their side. Whether if it’s true or not.
