In this article, you will get all information regarding Dave Chapelle’s show cancelled before he was due on stage amid trans backlash

A COMEDY venue cancelled a Dave Chappelle show hours before he was due on stage amid fury at his trans jokes.

First Avenue in Minneapolis, US, said the 48- year-old’s gig will move to the city’s Varsity Theater tomorrow.

The venue sparked anger on social media after announcing the show earlier this week.

Critics claim Chappelle’s material in his Netflix special The Closer ridicules trans people.

First Avenue wrote: “To staff, artists, and our community, we hear you and we are sorry.

“We know we must hold ourselves to the highest standards, and we know we let you down.

“We understand that First Ave is not just a room, but meaningful beyond our walls.

“The First Avenue team and you have worked hard to make our venues the safest spaces in the country, and we will continue with that mission.
