Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado, known for her controversial statements and actions, recently captured the attention of comedian Dave Chappelle. The two congresswomen, Boebert and Anna Paulina Luna, took a selfie with Chappelle during an impromptu encounter at the Capitol. However, this seemingly harmless moment quickly became a platform for Boebert’s divisive views.
Rep. Lauren Boebert captures a selfie with comedian Dave Chappelle on Capitol Hill, using the moment as an opportunity to express her anti-LGBTQ views, sparking criticism from those who oppose her stance.
Boebert, in her Instagram post featuring the selfie, used the opportunity to promote her anti-LGBTQ stance. The caption read, “Just three people who understand that there are only two genders.” This move sparked criticism and backlash from those who view Boebert’s views as harmful and discriminatory.
According to a source close to the situation, Chappelle had no intention of engaging in any political discussion during the photo op. It was a spontaneous interaction as Chappelle was in Washington, D.C. for an “Art is Activism” event at his former high school, Duke Ellington School of the Arts.
While Chappelle intended to meet up with friends and not politicians, he coincidentally ran into several members of Congress, including Boebert and Luna, who eagerly sought a photo with the renowned comedian.
Given Boebert’s previous controversial moments, including an incident where she was seen being physically affectionate with her date during a theater performance of “Beetlejuice,” Chappelle likely had a plethora of comedic material running through his mind upon seeing her.
