On 20 October, two weeks after Chappelle’s new comedy special debuted on Netflix, members of the Netflix employee resource group Trans* and their allies will take a “day of rest”.
This is in response to The Closer, which faced immediate backlash due to the transphobic remarks it features. “They cancelled J.K.
Rowling — my God. [Effectively] she said gender was a fact, the trans community got mad as shit, they started calling her a TERF,” Chappelle says during the episode.
