Hundreds of Netflix employees staged protest over Dave Chappelle special

Hundreds of Netflix employees walked out of work in protest of the streaming platform’s controversial Dave Chappelle special, ‘The Closer’.

The workers, who are organized by “Team Trans,” believe the special is transphobic and are calling for Netflix to remove it and commit to releasing more “intersectional” content.

Protestors streamed from the company’s Sunset Boulevard building around 10 a.m Wednesday, where they held a rally to “underscore the importance of responsible content offerings that prioritize the safety and dignity of all marginalized communities,” according to organizers. The employees walking out included Netflix’s “Most” Team — a social team dedicated to the company’s LGBTQ+ content.
