Famed comedian Dave Chappelle is facing a lot of criticism over politically incorrect jokes he made in his latest Netflix stand-up special.

"Please f**king stop watching Dave Chapelle," tweeted a woman identifying as a transgender lesbian. "The things he says get trans people murdered."

Chappelle has been criticized previously for his transgender jokes, but he has fired right back against the culture of political correctness.

"What I didn't realise at the time was that I was breaking an unwritten and unspoken rule of show business," Chappelle said in the stand-up special titled, "Sticks & Stones."

"No matter what you do in your artistic expression, you are never, ever, allowed to upset the alphabet people," he continued. "You know who I mean. Those people who took 20% of the alphabet for themselves. I'm talking about them Ls and Bs and Gs and the Ts."

Chappelle was referring to the LGBT lobby, which stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rights.

"I feel bad for the Ts. But they're so confusing," he continued, "the fact is if a person can be born in the wrong body, they have to admit that's a f***ing hilarious predicament."

The LGBT news site Pink News describes the rest of the joke:

Chappelle then goes on to do a racist impression of a Chinese person, pretending that Chinese is "how I feel inside".
He continues in the same vein: "Say Lebron James changed his gender… can he stay in the NBA? Or does he have to go to the WNBA, where he will score 800 points a game?"

Many transgender allies and advocates on social media account were offended by the jokes.

Here's the commercial for his special:
