Zack Sharf Digital News Director Comedian Matt Rife has ignited controversy with his Netflix special “Natural Selection,” which launched Nov.

15 on the streaming service. The special kicks off with a joke about domestic violence. In what appeared to be an apology posted to his Instagram story, Rife directed anyone offended by his jokes to a link that led them to a website for special needs helmets.

At the beginning of Rife’s “Natural Selection,” he tells a story about being in a “ratchet” Baltimore restaurant with a friend and noticing their female server has a black eye.

They wonder why the restaurant wouldn’t have the server work solely in the kitchen so that customers wouldn’t see her black eye.
