Trans Rights Matter. And as an organization, Netflix has continually failed to show deep care in our mission to Entertain the World by repeatedly releasing content that harms the Trans community and continually failing to create content that represents and uplifts Trans content.
We can and must do better!"The group is reportedly planning to walk out on October 20.Chappelle's recent special, The Closer, has come.
