Netflix standing by Dave Chappelle and ‘The Closer’

Dave Chappelle’s new show The Closer is not closing as of right now. This past week has seen Dave Chappelle’s name thrown around in the cancel culture circle after some comments he made during his new Netflix comedy special were deemed by some as Transphobic.

In an email obtained by The Verge and Variety, Netflix co-CEO said to their staff “We don’t allow titles on Netflix that are designed to incite hate or violence, and we don’t believe The Closer crosses that line. He also said “Some people find the art of stand-up to be mean spirited but our members enjoy it, and it’s an important part of our content offering.”

As for the rumors of employee suspensions a Netflix spokesperson told CNN 

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