'Comedian' Patton Oswalt Apologizes For Appearing With Dave Chappelle

One-time comedian Patton Oswalt penned a deeply-embarrassing, groveling apology on Sunday for appearing in public together with Dave Chappelle.

If you read the fine print, you'll see that Chappelle apparently invited Oswalt to perform together with him at the Seattle Center on Friday night.

This is how Oswalt repaid the favor:

"But we also 100% disagree about transgender rights & representation. I support trans peoples' rights ANYONE'S rights to live safely in the world as their fullest selves. For all the things he's helped ME evolve on, I'll always disagree with where he stands NOW on transgender issues. But I also don't believe a seeker like him is done evolving, learning. You know someone that long, see the struggles and changes, it's impossible to cut them off. Impossible not to be hopeful and open and cheer them on."

[...] "I'm an LGBTQ ally. I'm a loyal friend. There's friction in those traits that I need to reconcile myself, and not let cause feels of betrayal in ANYONE else. And I'm sorry, truly sorry, that I didn't consider the hurt this would cause. Or the DEPTH of that hurt. I've been messaging a lot on IG today, and the back and forth has really helped guide me in the writing of this. I (naively) deleted a lot of posts in the comment thread critical ones from LGBTQ writers AND shit-posts by TERF/anti-trans orcs looking for clicks & giggles. I wanted a 'nice comment thread' about the pic with my friend. Ugh. So easy to think someone ELSE needs growth and miss the need in yourself. Gonna keep trying."
Chappelle deserves this for giving this idiot the stage.
