Comedian Dave Chappelle reportedly refused to back down after angry students confronted him when he made a surprise visit to his alma mater in Washington, D.C., this week.

Chappelle visited his alma mater, the Duke Ellington School of the Arts, on Tuesday, where he spoke to an auditorium of nearly 600 students and responded to backlash stemming from his most recent Netflix special, "The Closer."

According to Politico, students both cheered and booed Chappelle. At one point, an antagonistic student stepped up to a microphone and called Chappelle a "bigot" over his LGBT jokes. "I'm 16 and I think you're childish, you handled it like a child," the student reportedly said.

But for students hoping for an apology from Chappelle, the legendary comedian immediately disappointed — and refused to cave to pressure.

"My friend, with all due respect, I don't believe you could make one of the decisions I have to make on a given day," Chappelle reportedly told the student. Sources told Politico the response angered students even more.
