Dave Chappelle’s latest cancellation should trouble us all

Comedian Dave Chappelle was due to perform a sell-out stand-up show last night*. But just hours before he took to the stage, the show was called off. We don’t know why Chappelle’s show was axed at the last minute. But we can read between the lines of the statement put out by First Avenue, the venue in Minneapolis in the United States, where Chappelle was due to perform.
