Comedian Dave Chappelle drew some controversy on March 10 when he commented that after hearing R&B singer Daniel Caesar's music that it was "very gay," while they both appeared on singer John Mayer's "Current Mood" Instagram Live show.

"I'm sorry did I say that out loud? I'm just kidding," said Chappelle while laughter could be overheard on-set.

"Daniel Caesar is a musician from Toronto that I just met tonight. He's amazing," Chappelle said to clarify and seemingly to defuse the situation.

Caesar immediately admitted to being offended but the tension appeared to subside as both Chappelle and Caesar admitted to being drunk.

Chappelle's comment came after he attended one of Caesar's concerts and while there appeared to be some awkwardness, things appeared to blow over between the pair.

On Tuesday, Caesar found himself in another Instagram controversy, while again admitting to being drunk.

While hosting an Instagram live chat for his 1 million followers, he vented about black people. "Why are we being so mean to white people right now?" said Caesar.

He continued in a somewhat incoherent diatribe.

"I don't want to be treated like I can't take a joke," Caesar said. "I just went through ... the Chappelle s--- and I had to like, in the moment, acknowledge that I was being f---ing sensitive."

He also defended social media influencer, Julieanna "YesJulz" Goddard, a white woman who posted on Twitter a picture of a t-shirt that read, "N----s lie a lot," with the comment: "So...am I allowed to wear this shirt at the festival tomorrow or nah."

Many may not know much about Caesar, who in 2017 released his only album "Freudian."

Born Ashton Simmonds, Caesar's musical roots seem to come from his Caribbean descent, who were longtime gospel singers at a Seventh-Day Adventist church. He later left the church in high school.

In 2014, he earned a breakout hit, "Praise Break," which made Rolling Stone’s "20 Best R&B Albums of 2014" list. This was followed by his breakout single "Get You," the precursor to his debut album. Playing the guitar, his acoustic performance of "Get You" and "Japanese Denim" has received more than 1.5 million views on YouTube.

"Freudian" would be released through independent label Golden Child Recordings and would hit No. 36 on the Billboard sales charts.

Former President Barack Obama listed 21 of his favorite songs of 2017, which included Caesar's "Blessed," a song on "Freudian."

Caesar would later earn Grammy Award nominations in 2018 for "Best R&B Album" and "Best R&B Performance" for the song "Get You." In 2019, he'd win his first and only Grammy for "Best R&B Performance" for a "Best Part," a song he performed with H.E.R (Gabriella Wilson).

Before his latest Instagram rant, Caesar was criticized for his perceived support of Kanye West and right-wing advocate Candace Owens.
