Trans Netflix Workers Planning A Walkout In Response To Dave Chappelle's "The Closer"
 

 
The business issues caused by a controversial Dave Chappelle comedy special are apparently anything but funny.

Transgender Netflix employees are planning an Oct. 20 walkout from the streaming service in response to a bevy of ongoing issues that all connect back to 48-year-old Chapelle’s “The Closer,” according to the Verge.

The most prominent of the problems was the suspension of a trans senior software engineer, Terra Field, who slammed Chappelle for his humor about trans people in a viral Twitter thread.

A source told The Post that Field was suspended not for the tweets but instead for intruding, along with two others, into an executives-only meeting.

Field has since been reinstated “after finding there was no ill-intent” in her attendance, she posted.

“I’m going to take a few days off to decompress and try to figure out where I’m at. At the very least, I feel vindicated,” Field tweeted.

Despite that, Netflix’s trans employee resource group is still moving forward with a planned walkout next week, according to the Verge, which obtained their internal memo.

“Trans Lives Matter. Trans Rights Matter. And as an organization, Netflix has continually failed to show deep care in our mission to Entertain the World by repeatedly releasing content that harms the Trans community and continually failing to create content that represents and uplifts Trans content. We can and must do better!” a leader of the movement reportedly wrote.

Adding fuel to the fire, co-CEO Ted Sarandos defended Chappelle in an email to employees amid the debacle this week.

“You should also be aware that some talent may join third parties in asking us to remove the show in the coming days, which we are not going to do,” Sarandos wrote, adding that the special is “an important part of our content offering.”

A follow-up Sarandos email, obtained by the outlet, also reportedly stated: “This will not be the last title that causes some of you to wonder if you can still love Netflix. I sincerely hope that you can.”

In response, walkout organizers allegedly sharply called out their higher-ups, writing “our leadership has shown us they do not uphold the values to which we are held,” according to the Verge.

Chappelle himself has become infatuated with “being canceled,” recently telling a large crowd at the Hollywood Bowl, “I love it.

“I don’t know what to tell you, except I’m a bad motherf – – ker,” he said.

Along with praise from comedian Damon Wayans, 61, Chappelle’s jokes were also defended by transgender comedian Flame Monroe, according to TMZ.

“All of this ‘What you can say and what you cannot say’ is ridiculous … I absolutely do not think that the special should be taken down off of Netflix,” Monroe said.

Chappelle was also described as an “LGBTQ ally” by the family of his late trans comedian friend Daphne Dorman.

How long they all been working there? Because if they been there since the 1st special, they should've been had the walkout if they had a problem. They stayed there thru all the specials he released with Netflix and now decide it's time to do something

This is SO STUPID.

From a strictly pragmatic perspective you cannot take the special down if you’re Netflix because that sets a precedent. The issue will be that what’s offensive is entirely subjective (as we saw, black folks been complaining for decades about various things that they only changed after Big Floyd). Talent won’t want to fu*k with them.

Then you have the fact that they’re publicly traded. If they have good specials that they paid a lot of bread for and they just shelf them to acquiesce various demographics in their workforce, the CEO will lose their damn job. Period.

Is no one outside their bubble advising them?

Don't like it, don't watch it. Watch a gay friendly comedian. Don't like your company's policy on free speech, then quit. The world doesnt care about you, me or anyone. You aren't special. You deserve nothing. That's life.

If I'm the Netflix boss, I'm keeping tabs on who walks out, then promptly fire all their f*g**t a*s a*ses..... what's w this thin skin nonsense the LGBTQ community has been whining and bi*ching about lately


I wonder if these same candy a*s motherfu*kers were "offended" at other Chapelle stand-ups or shows he's done over the last 20 plus years, where he makes fun of blacks Latinos,men,women,other racial groups etc etc,u name it.....bet u they loved Dave then
Now they wanna bi*ch,get the fu*k outta here

was Dave Chappelle right or was DaBaby right?

DaBaby said AIDS would k*ll you in "2-3 weeks" which doesn't match up with any scientific literature, research or findings since AIDS has been studied

Dave said what DaBaby said "was egregiously wrong"

egregiously means: "conspiciously bad: flagrant"

conspicuous means "obvious to the eyes"

flagrant means "conspicuously offensive"

Dave is essentially saying that any rational, reasonable, lucid person would know not to say that

Dave specifically chose that word, why?

but somehow his fans turned that into "Dave destroys the entire LGBT community"

it sure seems like both sides of this are blatantly refusing to acknowledge the entirety of The Closer

both sides are desperate to believe Dave hates LGBT, but both sides refuse to talk about that line

but how can you hate LGBT when you go on record on a widely available platform and openly denounce anti-LGBT talk?

or the other part

how can you believe Dave shares the christian view that LGBT should be stripped of wealth and power, put on trains and sent to camps when he shared the line:

“I don’t need you to understand me. I just need you to believe that I’m having a human experience.”

and he responds: "I believe you, because it takes one to know one.”

the whole point of including this line was to humanize the LGBT experience

Dave said he believed a trans person, but all his fans heard was a battle cry

Dave and DaBaby can't both be right, but your cognitive dissonance is telling you they can

so which is it?
