Cedric the Entertainer has some thoughts on whether or not Dave Chappelle is “uncancelable.” The veteran comedian recently appeared on “The Domenick Nati Show” where he discussed a range of topics, including the fallout after Chappelle’s controversial Netflix special, The Closer.

During the chat, show host Domenick Nati asked Cedric if he feels the Grammy-winning comedian is “uncancelable” despite his controversy-stirring stand-up.

“Once you feel you’re ‘uncancelable,’ or if you think that’s what you’re fighting for, that’s the wrong approach to take… to saying something that you really want to say,” Cedric responded.

“Not in the sense that, ‘Can’t nobody cancel me, so I’m gonna say what I want to say.’ You can find out people will cancel your ass,” he added.

Nati suggested that the person to cancel Chappelle may eventually be himself.

“That’s my point,” Cedric agreed. “He will end up canceling himself if he feels like nobody can cancel him. That’s what happens. You end up getting in people’s heads in a way where they turn you off.”

“It ain’t even so much about everybody else turning you off,” he continued. “It’s [when] people just decide [that] you think you’re bigger and better than everybody, and you literally start believing that, then people start to go like, ‘You know what? Fuck you, dawg.'”

Rather than being condemned by critics, the Barbershop actor said it’s comedians believing that they’re beyond reproach that can be the “slippery slope.”

In the months since his special aired, Chappelle’s high school alma mater postponed a ceremony meant to honor him and he had difficulty finding a distribution company to pick up his Untitled documentary.

“This controversy came out about The Closer and they began disinviting me to film festivals,” he said in stand-up clip posted to Instagram. “And now today, not a film company, not a movie studio, not a film festival, nobody will touch this film. Thank god for Ted Sarandos and Netflix. He’s the only one who didn’t cancel me yet.”

Chappelle is also set to perform at the Netflix’s upcoming comedy festival, Netflix Is A Joke: The Festival, in April. See a clip from Cedric the Entertainer’s “Domenick Nati Show” interview below.
