Twitter explodes after Dave Chappelle show is cancelled in Minnesota

Twitter users both praised and ridiculed First Avenue after the Minneapolis music venue

announced they were cancelling a stand-up comedy routine by Dave Chappelle following backlash.

The Dave Chappelle show tonight at First Avenue has been cancelled and is moving to

the Varsity Theater," the announcement, posted to Twitter, said.

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 are not just a black box with people in it,

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

The show was moved to Varsity Theater, and First Avenue told guests they would be able to transfer their tickets.
