The American stand-up comedian Dave Chappelle has a new comedy special name The Closer on Netflix. The show is currently criticized because Chappelle gives some transhobe comments from herself. For example, he claims to belong to himself that he belongs to the Team TERF (Trans Exclusive Radical Feminist).

The Netflix Internal Trans employee association demanded the deletion of the program from the program, which the Co-CEO Ted Sarandos denied on 8 October. According to him, The Closer spikes no hatred or violence, which is why Chappelle show continues to be part of Netflix repertoire. For Netflix itself, cooperation with Chappelle is very lucrative, for example, its last comedy special stick & stones was the most watchful stand-up on the streaming platform.

In response to the statements of Sarandos, the Trans-Employee Association plans a company-wide work festival on October 20. But before it comes to this, Sarandos still had some more to say to the defense of the show.

In an email that the site is Variety, Sarandos explained why he continues to support Chappelle Controverses Special. According to him, the Closer does not arise real damage, as violent video games coexist with declining crime rates:

At The Closer, we understand that it is not about inappropriate content, but for titles that could increase the damage in the real world (for example, marginalized groups further marginalize, promoting hatred and violence, etc.). Last year If we have similar concerns about 365 days and violence against women. Although some employees represent a different opinion, we are firmly convinced that content on the screen does not lead to real damage.

The strongest proof of this is that the violence on screens has increased enormously in the last thirty years, especially for first-party shooter games. Nevertheless, violence crimes have declined significantly in many countries. Adults can observe violence, attacks, and abuse – or enjoy shocking stand-up comedy – without harming other people.

Players and also players have always argued in the past that violence in video games does not lead to violence in real life. This debate was even presented to the Supreme Court in America, which pronounced for video games.

The organization Glaad, which the acceleration of acceptance for LGBTQ people to the goal, was commented on Twitter on the subject:

Netflix has a guideline that is not allowed on the platform for hatred or violence on the platform, but we all know that anti-lgbtq content is doing exactly that.

People who do not know LGBTQ persons, especially transsexuals, support their perception of our community on what they see in the media. If these media images are rooted dumpling stereotypes and rooted in riders, they can damage and harassment in the real world lead and do this too.

Even the Australian Comedian Hannah Gadsby, whose comedy-special can also be found on Netflix, was probably like many others absolutely not enthusiastic about Sarandos commentary and commented on these in an Instagram post:

Hello Ted Sarandos! Just a short border note to let you know that I would rather if you would not pull my name into your mess. Now I have to deal with the hatred and anger, the Dave Heliday at Chappelles fans every time Dave gets $ 20 million to process his emotionally crippled partial world picture. You did not pay me close enough to finish with the real consequences of the Hate-Speech Dog Whistling, which you are ready Do not want to admit, Ted. F CK and your amoral algorithmus cult … I have excrets that own more backbone than you. That s just a joke! I have definitely not exceeded a border because you have just said that the world has just said that there is no.

The cost of Dave Chappelle appearance was recently jellied by an employee, which was quickly dismissed.

Despite the very violent reactions of some fans – and also from Hannah Gadsby – the The-Closer Special probably will not disappear from the streaming platform. Thus, according to New York Times, the Co-CEO Reed Hastings explained that Chappelle and The Closer is very popular with the viewers, and that Netflix will continue to work with Dave Chappelle in the future .
