Comedian Dave Chappelle told fans he was ready to meet members of the transgender community in blame for his Netflix show “Closer” being transphobia.
In a video of the show posted on his Instagram account, Chapel accuses the media of offending him to the transgender community.
“Don’t blame the LBGTQ community for this (swearing). It has nothing to do with them,” he said. “It’s about the company’s interests in what I can’t say.”
Chapel added that the repulsion surprised him.
“I don’t know what this nonsense is, because everyone I know from that community is nothing but love and support.”
Netflix employees quit their jobs last week after the company refused to remove “The Closer” from its streaming service because of transgender comments.
Chapel offered the conditions to meet people who were angry with his special. The attendee must have seen the special, and he can choose the time and place of the meeting.
The comedian lamented that it had been “cancelled.” He said his documentary “Untitled” has been blacklisted since “Closer” debuted. Before his Nexflix special came out, he said “Untitled” would be featured at many film festivals. He said he was no longer invited since then.
