The Closer By Dave Chappelle And The Controversy:

People didn’t like Dave Chappelle’s Netflix show “The Closer” in 2021. People didn’t like the show because of what he said regarding the LBGTQ+ community, especially about the transgender community.

In the special, Chappelle brought up a debate that happened in December 2019 when “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling was criticized for mixing up sex and gender and supporting ideas that changing a person’s actual sex is a threat to her own gender identity.

Chappelle also tried to show a difference between how quickly the LGBTQ community won civil rights and how slowly the Black community did.

Ted Sarandos, co-CEO of Netflix, supported his choice to keep the show upon the streaming service after some workers at the company said it was a bad idea.

Sarandos sent a letter to the staff at the time, promising that Netflix would support the special and pointing out how Netflix works to support the creative freedom of its staff.

Sarandos’s support for the special led some Netflix workers to walk out in 2021. This was a big deal, and fans of the walkout gathered outside the company offices and made emotional speeches in support of the walkout.

 A Few Workers Stated That Company Leaders Did Not Care Regarding Their Worries:

The workers said that company leaders didn’t care about their worries that Chappelle’s words within “The Closer” might contribute to assaults against trans people.

At the time, two workers, one who was transgender and the other who didn’t identify with either gender, filed labor charges in opposition to the streaming giant, saying that the company punished them for speaking regarding Chappelle’s special.

Netflix sent a message to USA TODAY hours before the walkout: “We value our trans peers and friends, and we know how much pain this has caused.

We value the choice of any worker who wants to quit, and we know we have a lot more work to do both inside Netflix and with our programming.

Chappelle Post A Instagram Clip Within 2021 Regarding The Last Incident:

“I want everyone within this audience to know that despite the fact that the media portrays this as me against that community, that is not the case,” Chappelle said during a 2021 Instagram clip.

“Don’t put any of this on the LBGTQ group. Nothing about this is about them. It has to do with business interests and what I am permitted to say.”

In 2022, “The Closer” was nominated for two Primetime Emmys, including one for best comedy show. Stan Lathan also received a nomination for the award for best direction of a variety show for his work upon “The Closer.”

Just After Emmy Nominees Were Released People Complained On Social Media Regarding The  Nominees:

After the Emmy nominees were released, people complained on social media about the choice to give Chappelle’s Netflix special more attention.

Last July, Chappelle was supposed to perform at First Avenue, but the show was changed at the last minute to the Varsity Theater after fans complained about transphobic jokes in his Netflix episodes.
