In a time that seems to give us new Britney docs every other week, comes a new breed of documentary… the BRITTANY doc! Brittany Murphy to be exact.

Today’s film, TV and cultural conversations are making big strides in addressing a number of long-entrenched prejudices, so why do many people still act like it’s okay to mock, lecture or belittle fat people? Fatphobia is so normalized and pervasive in our society that we might not even see all the ways it manifests. Today, at last, some more nuanced stories are destigmatizing and centering fat characters in all their complexity — and creators like Shrill’s Aidy Bryant and Lindy West are even reclaiming the word ‘fat’ itself.
Check out The Take‘s dissection of the film/TV trend that still needs to change.
!! OMG, Dave Chappelle goes after Asians, trans people, and calls himself a TERF in new “comedy” special !!
Dave Chappelle has a new Netflix “comedy” special out called Closer, and while we’re definitely not about cancelling people at any opportunity possible – his new materials just seems outright dangerous! Dave had the following “funny” things to say. Let’s take a look:
“I don’t know if you heard on the news: I did get coronavirus—and it was something else…I couldn’t help but feel like, when I saw these brothers beating these Asians up, that’s probably what’s happening inside of my body.”
“Any of you who have ever watched me know that I have never had a problem with transgender people…If you listen to what I’m saying, clearly, my problem has always been with white people.”
“They canceled J.K. Rowling – my God. I’m Team TERF! I agree. I agree, man. Gender is a fact…Now, I am not saying that to say trans women aren’t women, I am just saying that those pussies that they got… you know what I mean? I’m not saying it’s not pussy, but it’s Beyond Pussy or Impossible Pussy. It tastes like pussy, but that’s not quite what it is, is it? That’s not blood. That’s beet juice.” (Is there anything transphobic people love more than obsessing over and fantasizing about trans people’s bodies?)
After pointing out that DaBaby had killed another man and still continued to perform and escaped punishment, but got “canceled” after making incredibly derogatory comments about gay people, Chappelle made the comparison direct. “Do you see where I’m going with this?” he quipped. “In our country, you can shoot and kill a n****r, but you better not hurt a gay person’s feelings!”
Dave then continued to state that the death of his friend, trans activist Daphne Dorman, should be blamed on the trans community by implying ‘they bullied her into committing suicide because she defended Dave after one of his numerous other transphobic rants.’ Ooof. This doesn’t seem like the type of special we’d want to come home and unwind to.
