LOS ANGELES – Trans employees and allies at Netflix are planning a walkout on Wednesday, Oct. 20, in protest of co-CEO Ted Sarandos’ comments regarding Dave Chappelle’s new special, “The Closer,” Variety has confirmed.
As reported by The Verge, a leader of the streamer’s trans employee resource group wrote the following in a message to members: “Trans Lives Matter. 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!”
Netflix’s Most Twitter account dedicated to LGBTQ content posted Wednesday, “We can’t always control what goes on screen. What we can control is what we create here, and the POV we bring to internal conversations.”
