There appears to be some drama brewing over at Saturday Night Live as writers are reportedly boycotting Dave Chappelle’s upcoming hosting gig with musical guest Black Star. The comedian, who came under fire last year for making transphobic and homophobic jokes, is set to host the hit sketch comedy show for the third time this Saturday, Nov. 12.
Sources have told Page Six that certain writers are “so furious” about Chappelle being invited to the show that they are opting out of the episode. They said, “They’re not going to do the show. But none of the actors are boycotting.”
After it was announced that Chappelle would be hosting, SNL writer Celeste Yim reportedly took to their Instagram story to write, “I’m trans and non-binary. I use they/them pronouns. Transphobia is murder and it should be condemned.” However, it is unclear if Yim is a writer planning to sit out of this episode or if the remarks were made in reference to the comedian.
Meanwhile, Chappelle’s representative told the outlet that “there was no evidence of a boycott,” adding, “The room was full of writers. They all pitched ideas and they seemed very excited about it … Dave is looking to have some fun.”
Last year, Chappelle released his sixth and final Netflix comedy special, The Closer, which sparked backlash for “ridiculing trans people” when he joked about trans women and defended comments made by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling and rapper DaBaby that were deemed to be transphobic. In a statement to Deadline, National Black Justice Coalition executive director David Johns even called for the streamer to remove the comedy special, claiming, “Netflix should know better,” and that, “Perpetuating transphobia perpetuates violence.”
Decider has reached out to SNL for a comment.
