We told you earlier this month that there’s a very sharp contrast between how critics and viewers are handling Dave Chappelle’s Netflix special “Sticks and Stones.” And now the media is starting to notice, as evidenced by this CNBC headline and story:
Dave Chappelle's Netflix special is offending critics, but viewers don't seem to care. https://t.co/0oRrjKDZjk
— CNBC (@CNBC) September 14, 2019
Pretty much sums it up. https://t.co/xfn13hBBx6

It sure does!
Viewers don't care what critics think the same way critics don't care what viewers think.

They aren't critics, they're activists. https://t.co/Y3KFKalaDc

That's because critics think too highly of themselves. https://t.co/eIZTph6zhl

Nobody cares about them

Might be because the viewer isn't paid to be perpetually offended.

Here’s a quote from the article that shares one bit of criticism of Chappelle’s stand-up:
They think they don't talk about LGBTQ and specifically Trans issues enough

Do “critics” know how to party or what?
