Daphne Dorman dead: Daphne Dorman the transwoman Dave Chappelle talks about in his most recent special committed suicide October 11, 2019.
The beloved standup comedian allegedly killed herself after she posted a suicide note on Facebook.
The suicide note read:
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.
There’s no good way. That’s what I got out of all that thought.
To those of you who are mad at me: please forgive me. To those of you who wonder if you failed me: you didn’t. To those of you feel like I failed you: I did and I’m sorry and I hope you’ll remember me in better times and better light.
I love you all. I’m sorry. Please help my daughter, Naia, understand that none of this is her fault. Please remind her that I loved her with every fiber of my being.

Just found out that I lost an old friend today.
This f’ing world sometimes…
Be KIND to one another, people.
- From Keturah G:
A very dear friend of mine took her own life today. I’m at a loss for words. My heart goes out to her family, her daughter, and of all those lucky SOBs that she was gracious enough to call her friends. I love you @DaphneDorman. Rest in Peace funny girl.
- From Jaye McBride of Frankstein:
Dave Chappelle’s trans friend committed suicide today apparently. I was mad at a lot of things when I heard this but after thinking about it, his friendship probably gave her more to live for these past few months. To all who knew her, I’m so, so sorry for your loss.
