Comedian Dave Chappelle returned to Netflix with a new stand-up show that is unapologetic in its controversial take on political correctness and today’s woke culture.

The one-hour special, titled “Sticks & Stones,” was released Monday and already gained attention for the comedian’s take on progressive criticism, tackling topics from “cancel culture,” to the #MeToo movement, transgender people and even questioning whether Michael Jackson molested young children.

“This is the worst time ever to be a celebrity,” Chappelle said in his fifth comedy special in the past two years. “You’re gonna be finished. Everyone’s doomed. Michael Jackson has been dead for 10 years, and this n— has two new cases.”

He warned viewers about the HBO documentary, “Leaving Neverland,” which details the late singer’s alleged sexual abuse in his career.

“Don’t watch it. … It’s f***ing gross,” Chappelle said, adding that he did not believe the two men in the documentary alleging that they were sexually abused by Jackson when they were children.

“I’m gonna say something that I’m not allowed to say, but I gotta be real. I don’t believe these motherf***ers. I do not believe it,” he said.

“But let me qualify the statement. I am what’s known on the streets as a victim blamer. You know what I mean? If someone came up to me like, ‘Dave, Dave, Chris Brown just beat up Rihanna.’ I’d be like, ‘Well, what did she do?’ ‘Dave, Michael Jackson is molesting children!’ ‘Well, what were those kids wearing at the time?’” Chappelle added.

“I don’t think he did it, but you know what? Even if he did do it … you know what I mean?” he said, pausing as the audience laughed. “I mean, it’s Michael Jackson. I know more than half the people in this room have been molested in their lives, but it wasn’t no goddamn Michael Jackson, was it?”

“Do you know how good it must’ve felt to go to school the next day after that sh*t?” he added. “I know it seems harsh, but somebody’s gotta teach these kids there’s no such thing as a free trip to Hawaii.”

Chappelle defended his friend and fellow comedian Louis C.K. as well as Kevin Hart, slamming the so-called cancel culture which he called out as “celebrity hunting season.”

“I don’t know what you know about Kevin, but I know that Kevin Hart is damn near perfect,” Chappelle said. “As close to perfect as anybody I’ve ever seen. In fact, Kevin is precisely four tweets shy of being perfect.”

“Sticks & Stones” is now streaming on Netflix and, while Chappelle’s comments poked many who were appalled, offended and aghast, plenty of viewers cheered the comedian on for his fearless confrontation of political correctness.
