One of the nation’s largest LGBTQ+ advocacy groups, GLAAD, is denouncing Netflix for its decision to keep airing a new comedy special by Dave Chappelle which contains a number of anti-trans jokes. In a statement, GLAAD said, “Netflix has a policy that content 'designed to incite hate or violence' is not allowed on the platform, but we all know that anti-LGBTQ content does exactly that.” Meanwhile, Netflix has suspended three workers, including a trans employee who had publicly criticized the Chappelle special. Netflix claims the suspensions were for an unrelated reason.
