Cancel Culture Hits As Minneapolis Venue Cancels Dave Chappelle’s Show

Dave Chapelle’s comedy show in Minneapolis, MN was cancelled the day-of after the venue decided not to host the show due to public outrage.

Chapelle was scheduled to perform tonight at the First Avenue venue in downtown Minneapolis, but the venue informed him hours before that he couldn’t perform tonight.

After it was announced on Monday that his show was coming to Minneapolis, and it was sold out in 5 minutes on Tuesday. First Avenue faced a lot of backlash on social media for allowing Chapelle to have his show there given his infamous controversy with the Trans Community.

One of the comments on social media read—“Announced 24 hours in advance because y’all KNOW what you’re platforming and simply continue to be money chasing cowards.” First Avenue quickly responded with a statement saying they decided to cancel his show in respect to the people in the community.

“To staff, artists, and our community, we hear you and we are sorry. We know we must hold ourselves to the highest standards, and we know we let you down. We are not just a black box with people in it, and we understand that First Ave is not just a room, but meaningful beyond our walls.”

We believe in diverse voices and the freedom of artistic expression, but in honoring that, we lose sight of the impact this would have. We know there are some who will not agree with this decision; you are welcome to send feedback.”

His show has now been moved to another venue inside the city. Ticket holders will be able to use the same one in the new location.
