Daphne Dorman Dave Chappalle, a popular transgender comedienne and actress has died. The transgender activist died by suicide, the Office of Transgender Initiatives for the City & County of San Francisco confirmed to the Daily News.
Daphne Dorman’s Cause of Death: Before she took her own life, Dorman shared a “goodbye” message on Facebook, hinting about her intention.
The 44-year-old actress posted what appears to be a goodbye message on Facebook Friday saying she was “sorry.”
“I’ve thought about this a lot before this morning. How do you say “goodbye” and “I’m sorry” and “I love you” to all the beautiful souls you know? For the last time,” Dorman started.
She as was in the middle of controversy recently after she was referenced by Dave Chappelle in a stand-up special that some people called transphobic. Dorman, however, “was laughing the hardest” at the trans jokes in his practice set, the comedian said.
#RIP to the dead.
