He is an incredible talent, but he has managed to shadow his capabilities and become a pariah in the industry like all other great talents. He converted to Islamic religion in 1998, People despise the Dave Chapelle autographs, and they are willing to pay or do just anything to get a hold of one. For these reasons, he is also considered one of the most infamous celebrities in Hollywood.

Well, one of the funniest people in Hollywood is Maz Jobrani. People love watching him on T.V. and his stand-up mic events, but people do not like his movies. Maz Jobrani came into the limelight with his “Axis of Evil” comedy group. The stand-up comedian belongs to Iran and is known for his light humor-based content on Muslim ideology.

Summing Up

Many actors in Hollywood have converted to Muslims or are Muslims. However, there are no such discrimination stories faced by any of the above artists. Hollywood welcomes all religions and has no sort of discrimination based on religion or color.
