Comedian and podcaster Joe Rogan defended fellow comedian Dave Chappelle on Tuesday, warning that “ideas that you can’t make fun of are dangerous.”

Chappelle has been shellacked in the media and from progressives over jokes he made in his latest stand-up special for Netflix, “The Closer.” Chappelle’s jokes about transgender people and his support for “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling and “Team TERF” arguably sparked the most backlash against the host, though he mocked a number of different people groups throughout the special.

Rogan defended Chappelle, whom Rogan said was a friend, on the latest episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience.” Rogan was interviewing podcaster Michael Malice.

“He’s just, you know, riding out the storm,” Rogan said of Chappelle, according to Complex. “He’s not a homophobic or transphobic person. He makes fun of himself. There’s a bit in that special about him getting molested and jerking off on a man’s face or cumming in a man’s face. Look, it’s fun. It’s just making jokes. That doesn’t mean hate. This is the problem with today: if you don’t have an enemy, you make an enemy. And this is a real problem with people. We look for things.”
