Dave Chappelle, he of the allegedly great Radiohead covers, reportedly left Kylie Jenner less-than-enthused following a recent sold-out show in Hollywood. King Kylie attended the show with everyone's fav Tyga but reportedly "kept a straight face" during Dave's bit about Caitlyn Jenner, according to a report from the stand-up comedy experts over at TMZ.
King Kylie and Tyga were watching from the VIP section when Dave launched into a 7-minute bit about Caitlyn Jenner, noting that he was old enough to recall Caitlyn as a "Superman" who was great at "beating Africans" on the track in the 70s. According to Dave, he was tipped off regarding Caitlyn's transition after bumping into longtime friend Kanye West. "I said, 'Kanye, why the long face?' And Kanye replied, 'Man, you’ll see,'" Chappelle reportedly said, again according to TMZ.
The bit was apparently a big hit during Dave's set at the Palladium, though Kylie reportedly offered nothing in the way of laughs. Tyga, TMZ notes, left the venue "still grinning" while Kylie maintained the aforementioned straight face. Though it's hard to really judge Dave's Caitlyn Jenner bit based on these limited details, the last instance of a prominent comedian making a joke at Caitlyn's expense proved immediately controversial.
Ricky Gervais delivered a line during this year's Golden Globes that many quickly deemed both sexist and outwardly transphobic, with Caitlyn herself responding to Gervais' line during a Television Critics Tour event in January. "I think what I’m going to do is call the Golden Globes and see if they need a new host for next year," Jenner said. "We'll solve that problem."
