Dave Chappelles alma mater, a comedian, is renaming a building in his honor.
In the wake of his transgender misgiving, he was hailed by students on campus.
Here''s all you need to know about it.
The comedian is expected to rename his theater after Dave Chappelles alma mater.
Due to his constant commitment and service to the school, the institution has stated that they are continuing to honor their most well-known graduates.
While filming for his Netflix comedy show Closer, Chappelle was criticized last year for making remarks about transgender people.
One of his remarks stated that gender is a fact that led the trans community to blast his comedy special.
During the course of the controversial series, social media has raised a lot of concern, including a protest from Netflix employees.
Students were not impressed when Chappelles'' former school announced their intention to rename their theatre in honor of their famous graduate.
Chappelle was not deterred by it. He launched a fundraising challenge. He was urging both his supporters and his opponents to raise money for the school.
The 48-year-old claimed that if his opponents raised more money then he would go without saying that the building was named after him.
Chappelles supporters raised more money as the building will soon be called the Dave Chappelle Theatre.
While still taking the heat for his joking about the transgender community, Dave Chappelle arrived at his old school in November 2021.
The Politico Playbook claimed that during a meeting with around 580 students, one member spoke up and described Chappelle as a bigot. The same pupil said, "I am 16 and you are almost childish."
According to the comedian, I will not believe you could make one of the decisions I must make on a certain day with all the necessary respect.
The statement jeopardized some students who sought Chappelle''s apologies.
Another student said, "Your comedy kills."
Chappelle made things worse by chiming back, and N****s are murdered every day. The medias are not here, right?
En outre, the students attended a demonstration in the fall of last year in order to re-turn the facility''s decision.
