Dave Chappelle is enjoying the controversy surrounding his latest Netflix special The Closer.
The comedian took the stage at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on Thursday night for a screening of his documentary and addressed multiple petitions for his show to be pulled from Netflix.
"If this is what being canceled is about, I love it," he joked. "I don't know what to tell you, except I'm a bad motherf**ker.
"This is the kindness conspiracy," he said, before insisting Americans "have to trust one another."
Chappelle also reportedly said "F*ck Twitter," prompting applause from the crowd.
The funnyman, continued his personal war on transgender men and women throughout The Closer.
Chappelle, 48, clarified that he's not saying "trans women" aren't women. "I'm just saying that [the genitalia] that they got..." is "not quite what it is - is it?"
Chappelle has upset officials at the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) and the National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC) once again with his remarks.
Amongst various comments, he sides with Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, who became a target of activists last year after offering up her controversial views on transgender women.
Despite the backlash, Chappelle's new special has raced to the top five on Netflix's list of the most popular films and series on the platform in the U.S.
