Dave Chappelle Goes After Candace Owens in New Special; Owens Responds

OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Dave Chappelle is back, ladies and gentlemen.

In a brand new, unannounced comedy special titled “8:46” (as in the eight minutes and forty-six seconds disgraced former cop Derek Chauvin spent with his knee on George Floyd’s neck), the comedian talks about police brutality and race relations in light of Floyd’s death and the protests it’s sparked. The 27-minute show comes with the disclaimer that the material is “unrefined,” which I am going to start applying to literally all aspects of my life.

(Side note, if anyone wants to talk about how bad ass it is to release to the world half an hour of unrefined material as a comedian, hmu.)

As one might expect given the subject matter, Chappelle does not go easy on the people he invokes. The person who probably took the worst beating was Candace Owens, whom Chappelle refers to as “the most articulate idiot I’ve ever seen in my f*cking life.”

“I seen Candace Owens try to convince white America, ‘Don’t worry about it. He’s a criminal anyway.’ I don’t give a f— what this n—a did. I don’t care what this n—a did. I don’t care if he personally kicked Candace Owens in her stanky p—y,” Chappelle stated. “I don’t know if it stanks, but I imagine it does. If I ever find out, I’ll let you know for sure. I’ll tell like Azealia Banks. I’ll tell.”

I won’t bother sharing my take on the material, because really there’s only one person’s opinion on the matter that anyone cares about, and that is Candace Owens. Well, she had a tweet or two for Dave Chappelle, and it was. . .

really freaking chill, actually.

Owens is focusing on the important part: She made it into one of Dave Chappelle’s specials. Legend status, right there.

In a follow up tweet, she addressed Chappelle directly:

Of course, Twitter leftists are admonishing her for “missing the point,” which is really funny because they’re completely missing the point. If Chappelle’s point was to engage her on the content of her video about George Floyd, he wouldn’t have brought up her “stanky p—y.” It’s a COMEDY special– albeit one that addresses some very serious topics, but a comedy special nonetheless. Owens responded to it as such, because unlike the people likely to tweet obscenities at her, she understands what humor is. How novel.

Keep keeping it classy, Candace.
