That’s all changed. Internally, the tech company that revolutionized Hollywood is now in an uproar as employees challenge the executives responsible for its success and accuse the streaming service of facilitating the spread of hate speech and perhaps inciting violence.He is the leading comic about the Black experience. He is funny.
At the center of the unrest is “The Closer,” the much-anticipated special from the Emmy-winning comedian Dave Chappelle, which debuted on Oct. 5 and was the fourth-most-watched program on Netflix in the United States on Thursday. In the show, Mr. Chappelle comments mockingly on transgender people and aligns himself with the author J.K. Rowling as “Team TERF,” an acronym for trans-exclusionary radical feminist, a term used for a group of people who argue that a transgender woman’s biological sex determines her gender and can’t be changed.
The people who work for Netflix and the NY Times are horrible leftist racist people. They say that because Chappelle is Black, then he is supposed to certain opinions about trannies.
His show is not against transgender rights at all. He is all in favor of such rights. He is just not on board with some of the demands of the extreme transgender activists.
Too bad. He was one of the last Americans with free speech. Not anymore, I guess.

I don't think Chappelle or Rowling ever said that sex determines gender. Gender, as the term is commonly used, is an identification choice, and obviously a man can choose to identify as a woman. Others may still consider that man to be a man.
On Wednesday, GLAAD criticized Mr. Sarandos’s claim that on-screen content does not lead to real-world violence. “Film and TV have also been filled with stereotypes and misinformation about us for decades, leading to real-world harm, especially for trans people and L.G.B.T.Q. people of color,” the organization said in a statement.No, film and TV have not been filled with transgendered folks for decades. Maybe three years. And no opinions like Chappelle's have led to violence, as far as I know.
If anything might lead to violence, I would suspect organizations like GLAAD and opinions like this NY Times article. They portray transgender people as anti-social perverts who aggressively try to bully everyone into accepting their peculiar lifestyle choices.
Update: I watched to the end, and Chappelle reveals that he had a trans friend who was driven to suicide by Chappelle-haters. Amazing.
