Daphne Dorman’s Family Spoke Out To Defend Dave Chappelle

Daphne Dorman’s family has come together to defend her, after Dave Chappelle made comments earlier this week that suggested her death may have been caused by drug use. Chappelle was speaking with a group of journalists when he was asked about the tragic passing of his friend, Daphne Dorman. It’s worth noting that this interview came as a result of Chappelle leaving his tour early and cutting short his promotional events for his new book. Dorman was found unresponsive in the bathroom of an apartment she was renting with friends in Brooklyn. The New York City medical examiner ruled that she died from “acute methadone and ethanol intoxication” – essentially, mixing prescription painkillers with alcohol led to her death. In response to the question about Dorman, Chappelle said: “I have nothing but love for Daphne Doman – such a nice person! I don’t know what happened there. Again, we party different ways. And I didn’t see any drugs — I don’t know if it was before or after; maybe it wasn’t even there.” Read on for more details about Dave Chappelle and Daphne Dorman. read more

Dave Chappelle Is Speaking Out After Pulling Out Of His Tour

In a video of the event, you can see Chappelle walk off stage, only to return a few minutes later to the sound of boos. He then explained that he felt unable to perform and needed to leave the stage. Chappelle went on to cancel the remaining dates of his tour and was briefly hospitalized in February due to “mental exhaustion.” It was in the aftermath of all these events that Chappelle met with a group of journalists to discuss his new book, Deep in the Heart of Texas.

Dave Chappelle Has A Different Viewpoint On Drugs

Daphne Dorman’s Family Has Spoken Out About Her Death

After Dave Chappelle made these comments about Daphne Dorman, her family issued a public statement to address what he said. Chappelle’s remarks were published on The Root and Dorman’s family responded with the following statement: “Daphne was a talented and beautiful young woman who loved her family and her friends with all her heart. She was a devoted mother to her daughter, and she had dreams of becoming a successful actress and a standup comedian. Her death was a tragedy, and the family is still mourning her loss. It is unfortunate that these untrue and unkind remarks were made at a time when the family is still mourning her death. For over a year, the family has been asking the public to help them find out what happened the night Daphne died, and now, when a potential answer has come, it is being dismissed. The family hopes that people will focus on what is known – that Daphne was in New York City with people she loved and that something terrible happened that night – nothing else matters.”

There’s no evidence to suggest that Daphne Dorman’s passing was caused by drug use, and there’s no evidence to suggest that Dave Chappelle was involved in any way. In fact, even though Daphne was found in an apartment she was renting with friends, it’s possible that the drugs she took belonged to one of those friends.
