5 and 6 were a lot better. The villain with unlimited resources and no agenda stretches the flimsy amount of believability this franchise skates on.
I have a lot of unflinching love for Chappelle from 20 years ago, and I agree that some of the jokes he told then wouldn't fly today and that jokes from his last special were at least in phrasing problematic.
I'm glad he took on his own controversy head on. He skipped the slur, he doubled down on his support, and he still told jokes involving transgender people. The rest of the special was funny too.
