Dave Chappelle appears to be pleading the fifth because it considerations his “Piss on You” parody of R. Kelly. Back in 2003, when it first aired on Comedy Central, “(I Wanna) Piss On You” was seen an entire lot totally different. Although Dave Chappelle’s parody video acquired a near-unanimous reception upon its launch, it’s now seen with a distinct lens, in mild of the shifting views of restorative justice in America. As you possible know, Dave’s skit is predicated upon a baby pornography video depicting R. Kelly peeing on an underage lady.
In Chappelle’s satirical depiction, the comic avoids passing judgment on Kelly’s pedophilic tendencies. Given the local weather surrounding these points on the time, Chappelle’s solely curiosity was in Kelly’s sexual quirkiness, which in itself, drew the comic into a contentious state of affairs together with his comedic topic. R. Kelly’s response to Chappelle was to ship goons to his entrance door.
With the curiosity in R. Kelly’s transgressive “previous and current” effervescent to an all-time excessive, the “Piss on You” parody has come again to mild. Just yesterday, Chappelle was requested to touch upon the shortage of foresight he displayed in airing the “Piss on You” skit when it dropped. His response to a TMZ area reporter was to sarcastically comment that he’d desire “watching it once more” over commenting on the spot.
Whereas fellow comic D.L Hughley was much more biting when requested the identical query. Watch (under) as Hughley denigrates a technology of social commenters who feigned ignorance on the difficulty of Kelly’s pedophilia. Where do you stand – does Chappelle deserve a slap on the wrist? Are we not all complicit in laughing with him again in 2003?
