Fat Joeis defends his long-time friendDave ChappelleAfter the LGBTQ+ community, and its supporters have protested against the Emmy-winning comedians' numerous controversial remarks in his comedy specials.

TMZand interrogated the Terror Squad honcho on the LGBTQ+ community's recent treatment of Chappelle and shared his views on the 48-year-old comedian's disapproval while out in New York.

Joe spoke up about the LGBTQ+ community. They love him. Everybody has to take the time out and laugh. When it comes to comedians, we think of it as fun humor laughter. Of course there are some sensitive issues that our LGBTQ community is confronted with, which is fear, people beating them up for no reason. All kinds of things that are happening to them unfairly, but I don't think Dave Chappelle is making fun of them or me.

Joe agreed that sometimes jokes can be made too soon, implying that comedy is a relief, but that it may also trigger traumas that are still fresh.

After all, if you walk into a comedy club after they've already begun, and you try to get to your seat, they'll tear you up for about a half hour, according to the speaker. I love to laugh and that's the beauty of comedy.

Fat Joes comments follow the cancellation of Chappelles Minneapolis performance that was postponed hours before the doors opened due to backlash from supporters of the city's First Avenue venue. Due to his frequent jokes about transgender people in his latest specialThe Closer and others, the venue moved Chappelles show from First Avenue to the Minneapolis Varsity Theater.

The First Avenue team and you have worked tirelessly to make our venues the safest in the country, and we will continue to pursue that goal, but in honoring that, we neglected to consider the implications.

Chappelle attended the Allowed Tour with Kevin Hart and Chris Rock as he made his entrance to Karma Police, according to attendees. He went on to discuss his latest show cancellation among other topics.
