Dave Chapelle voices some potentially unpopular opinions in his latest Netflix stand-up special, Sticks and Stones. The Daily Beast reports that the 46-year-old comic defends his old pal Louis C.K. and rails against Michael Jackson's accusers in his set. “I don’t think he did it, but you know what? Even if he did do it…you know what I mean? I mean, it’s Michael Jackson," Chappelle says at one point. "This kid got his d**k sucked by the King of Pop...You know how good it must have felt to go to school the next day after that s**t?” Chappelle also calls Jackson's accusers "motherf**kers" and slams the Leaving Neverland documentary as "f**king gross...really nasty s**t." As for C.K., Chappelle jokes that he "was a very good friend of mine before he died in that terrible masturbation accident.” If it seems like Chappelle feels sorry for the rich and famous, you're right! "This is the worst time ever to be a celebrity,” Chappelle laments. “You’re gonna be finished. Everyone’s doomed."
