Renowned stand-up comedian, actor, and producer, Dave Chapelle, has, according to sources, a “transphobia” – negative attitudes, feelings, or actions towards transgender people or transness in general.
“The exclusive meeting featured Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos and the company’s top 500 employees.
During the two-day business review, Sarandos briefed the company on how they should be equipped to handle backlash from Chappelle’s controversial special The Closer.
“Chapelle is one of the most popular stand-up comedians today, and we have a long-standing deal with him,” Sarandos wrote in a memo obtained by Variety. “His last special “Sticks & Stones,” also controversial, is our most-watched, stickiest, and most award-winning stand-up special to date.”
According to the report published by The Post Millenial,
“In Chappelle’s latest Netflix special The Closer, the comedian pokes fun at radical feminism, cancel culture, gender identity, and other controversial topics. Chappelle also claimed that he is “Team TERF,” an acronym that stands for trans-exclusionary radical feminism.
Terra Field, a senior software engineer and one of the three employees suspended, posted a viral Tweet criticizing the company last week. Field is a member of the LGBTQ community and identifies as queer and trans.
“Promoting TERF ideology (which is what we did by giving it a platform yesterday) directly harms trans people, it is not some neutral act. This is not an argument with two sides. It is an argument with trans people who want to be alive and people who don’t want us to be,” Field said in a Twitter thread. “This all gets brushed off as offense though – because if we’re just “too sensitive” then it is easy to ignore us.”
I work at @netflix. Yesterday we launched another Chappelle special where he attacks the trans community, and the very validity of transness – all while trying to pit us against other marginalized groups. You're going to hear a lot of talk about "offense".
We are not offended 🧵

“It is absolutely untrue to say that we have suspended any employees for tweeting about this show,” a Netflix spokesperson came out to announce. “Our employees are encouraged to disagree openly and we support their right to do so.”
