Netflix is safeguarding Dave Chappelle’s new parody unique after it has been condemned as transphobic by some LGBTQ+ backers, craftsmen and representatives.
Chappelle’s uncommon, “The Closer,” which appeared on Netflix last week, incorporates a few minutes of jokes about trans individuals. The jokester says in the uncommon he is “group TERF,” referring to the term for “trans-exclusionary extremist women’s activist.”
“Sex is a reality,” Chappelle says. “Each person in this room, each individual on the planet, needed to go through the legs of a lady to be on the planet. That is true.”
He discusses backfire he got in the wake of poking fun at Caitlyn Jenner and other trans individuals in past specials, condemns drop culture around creator JK Rowling and references his companionship with Daphne Dorman, a trans lady and individual joke artist who opened for him at one of his San Francisco shows. Dorman passed on by self destruction in 2019, which Chappelle addresses in “The Closer.”I love Dave Chappelle and what he has accomplished.
