Netflix’s Dave Chappelle Debacle Shows It Puts Capitalism Over People

we reported previously, in the new project The Closer, Chappelle "announces himself to be 'Team TERF,' comments about trans women’s genitals, and sides with DaBaby disparaging people living with HIV." At one point he even tells an anecdote about beating up a lesbian. The National Black Justice Coalition released a statement in response, saying Netflix “should know better” and calling for the removal of The Closer. And the NBJC is not wrong: In 2020 Netflix released Disclosure, a documentary that examined the history of trans representation on-screen.
