Mmm, mmm!

That puts this into a different context then.

Well if the 'rona saved him from a weekend with that bag of broken hammers Joe Rogan I guess it can't be all bad.

i thought we were well past the "celebrity x catches coronavirus" article stage.

seems like we should be in a "celebrity x hasn't gotten coronavirus yet!" article stage.

He's been partying all night with Tyrone Biggums again lately. That's not good.

Get it together, Dave.

I'm a big fan, I think Chappelle's Show was great and the Killing 'Em Softly standup special he performed in Washington DC in 2000 was one of the finest examples of the art of standup I've ever seen.

So I forgive a lot, and I don't think he's got that much to apologise for anyway, he's a standup who's been around for decades, some of his jokes are going to have moved from "controversial" to "unacceptable" during that time because that's true of every edgy comic. I think he's much less misogyinistic than many (perhaps not saying much) of his peers, he has been edgy without being particularly hateful, and if some of his statements appall you then sure, he's a standup, that's his art and you're free to hate or love it and you're free to respond if you need to.

Q:  Do we wish him a speedy recovery?

A:  YEEEEEAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!

were scheduled to include Joe Rogan, with whom Chappelle was pictured at a venue earlier this week, alongside Elon Musk and Grimes.

Could Elon Musk say a thing so ridiculous that even Joe Rogan could not agree with it?

I don't care how funny anyone is, he's a superspreader, and if anyone he had contact with dies, he's a murderer too.

Now he can add that to his grievances.

Dude will have a rougher go at it, as he's a chain smoker.  when he was on rogans podcast a few months ago w/donnell rawlings he sucked down three or four in an hour.

uhh, okay. Isn't the whole point of social distancing to flatten the curve? So he's just another data point along a flattened curve. Everyone's panties are in a bunch over this, but we are all going to get covid at some point (or at least that's the theory), so I don't see him as any worse (or better) than anyone else who gets covid.

He'd be a superspreader murderer (LOLOLOLOL) if he continued to meet with people after knowing he was positive.

tl;dr: chill out

The point of distancing is to avoid getting coronavirus. Because if you get coronavirus you can spread it. Even if YOU don't get sick with covid, you can spread it around to people who will and who might then die.
Even if those people are wearing masks.
If you are not wearing a mask, you are likely to spread it.

And no. We are NOT all going to get it.

I have to say ... your post is disturbing.
But it does help me understand our outrageously horrific covid stats and death count.

I'd be ok with that as long as he came to the covid ward i ended up in and autographed my hospital gown.

/Kidding
//But if i died I'd haunt him.
///He could then do standup about the ghost that keeps hiding his weed and shiat.

He probably got it from Musk's baby momma. She tested positive Jan 9th.

Damn, jokes coupled with accusations (without evidence) that he's been irresponsibly spreading COVID. You can just feel the love and concern for his health dripping off this thread.

/Hope you get better Dave

staying in your parents basement because you don't have anywhere to go hardly counts as adhering to social distancing guidelines. I haven't gotten covid but plenty of people I know have who follow covid social distancing guidelines. It's perfectly normal at this point for someone to get it while being cautious. You obviously disagree. Simply calling someone who has been diagnosed with covid a "super spreader" is almost as funny of a joke as Pne in Dave's set.

Having a net worth of $50m or so to spend on cutting edge treatment.  Very good for DC.

There is so much that Dave Chapelle brings to the table, but he also brings a lot of nonsense. He has been running around lately with a lot of other nonsense enthusiasts like Joe Rogan. There have been a lot of pictures and stories of him running around in public with no mask with people who think they are edgy "free speech" advocates and "devil's advocates" when all they really do is give attention to a lot of conspiracy nonsense and blatant fascists.

This was bound to happen. I love him for his views on race in America. However, he is a closet bigot against the LGBTQ community, and he is also no friend to women's advancement in American culture. He won't ever admit those last two, but his words tell the story. 

I hope he recovers.

Yeah I never called him a superspreader.

And by "distancing" I mean standing about six feet from people and wearing a mask.

We could all go back to something resembling normal soon if you people would just be sensible.
There are people walking around without masks in parts of Australia - because there are no covid cases.
