Star Trek actor George Takei or “tacky George” as we like to call him, took to Twitter to bash Dave Chappelle’s new Netflix special “The Closer”. Takei is part of the LGBT community.
Think what you will of the special but it’s definitely got libs up in arms over his jokes.
“If Dave Chappelle had so blatantly attacked another minority group, such as Asians, Muslims, or Jews, would Netflix have so readily stood by his artistic freedom? It’s hard not to feel like trans people are considered fair game in today’s America. This is why we must speak out.”
Many asked if Takei even watched it at all as he did make a joke about Jewish people and many others.

He did not.— Stephen L. Miller (@redsteeze) October 16, 2021
He literally made a joke about Asian and black people within the first ten minutes of The Closer. Y’all didn’t even watch it. 🤣— Beam Bby (@RizzyBeamen) October 15, 2021
And by the way, there are real villains against the LBGTQ+ community we should be focusing on.— Ruben, You’re Not Going To Believe This (@BarelliRamos) October 16, 2021
You could delete all of that and just write “I didn’t watch Chappelle’s show so I really don’t know what he said”.— melanie haber 🦖🧢 🏴☠️ (@melsorbit) October 16, 2021
Then at least you’d be honest. But you wouldn’t be getting the ‘likes’.
Time will tell how long Takei’s tacky tweet stays up. Here is the screenshot in case it comes down:
