Fans say comedian and former Saturday Night Live writer John Mulaney is transphobic — all because comedian Dave Chappelle opened up for him ahead of a recent set.

what are the details

Mulaney is apparently being branded as transphobic by associations after Chappelle – who has been accused of transphobia for joking about the transgender community – opened up for the comedian before a Friday show in Columbus, Ohio.

Fans who attended the show took their grievances to social media, where they castigated Mulaney for allowing Chappelle to connect with the show.

One user, @boobeoisie, went viral for comments about the show.

The user wrote“Tell me why I just went on the John Mulaney show and Dave Chappelle was a surprise opener and cracked not only a transphobic joke but a homophobic one as well.”

Another fan said they felt “ambushed” by Chappelle’s performance.

“[M]Her favorite part of the night was when Dave Chappelle ambushed us at the John Mulaney show, told a bunch of transphobic jokes, a huge stadium of people laughed and John Mulaney gave him a hug at the end wrote.

One user – who identified as transgender – added“Pretty disappointed in John Mulaney, saw him tonight and yes he was funny but gave Dave Chapelle the platform to crack some transphobic jokes. It’s also very disheartening to hear a crowd of 12,000 around you (a trans person) laughing at transphobe jokes. Thank you Columbus.”

Other wrote“John Mulaney is not only responsible for platforming DC, but for another wave of cis assholes yelling at trans people that we overreact and deserve this treatment and cruelty. Damn shit!!

An offended participant told BuzzFeed News that Chappelle’s jokes are “low-hanging fruit” for a “red state like Ohio.”

“[Chappelle] has crushed an already marginalized and institutionally abused community,” the fan told the outlet. “It was embarrassing to see a respected man get so cheesy and boomer in his craft.”

The fan added: “It makes sense, unfortunately – it was a low-hanging fruit of a joke in a red state like Ohio. At the end, he urged the angry viewers to relax. Apparently trying to get backlash and acting shocked that he received it… it was embarrassing. Fans are slamming comedian John Mulaney for being a ‘transphobe’ Why?
