    Dave Chappelle defends freedom of speech from 'cancel culture': 'First Amendment is f

    Dave Chappelle spoke in favor of freedom of speech for comedians in the U.S. while accepting the prestigious Mark Twain Prize for American Humor on Sunday.

    The 46-year-old stand-up comedian received the accolade at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. He went off-the-cuff while accepting the award onstage, USA Today reports.

    "(I) don't get mad at 'em, don't hate on 'em," he said while discussing comedians he knows to be racist. "Man, it's not that serious. The First Amendment is first for a reason. Second Amendment is just in case the First one doesn't work out."

    The former “Chappelle Show” star has been talking about freedom of speech and "cancel culture" a lot since his recent Netflix standup special, “Sticks & Stones,” received backlash for defending comedians like Louis C.K. and Kevin Hart as well as telling a series of jokes about transgender people.

    He's one of the rare one's that isn't influenced politically in what he says.
    He truly does speak his mind.
    Why is it that those that know the least, know it the loudest?
