All hail King Dave!!
Critics and audiences couldn’t disagree more about Dave Chappelle’s eyebrow-raising Netflix special, ‘Sticks & Stones,’ which has been slammed by culture writers as unabashed hate speech yet lauded by fans as one of the best comedy performances of all time.
Chappelle’s latest hour-long stand-up set for Netflix received an extremely rare 0 percent Rotten Tomatoes rating from five professional critics, placing it among the ranks of all-time box office bombs like ‘Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2’ (2004) and Dennis Rodman’s ‘Simon Sez’ (1999).
That abysmally-low critics rating rose to 17 and then 29 percent on Tuesday – the same day Rotten Tomatoes unveiled Chappelle’s special has received an equally rare 99 percent audience score.
