yep. I dont see anyone upset about the "N" word 200 times.

It’s funny, because some of the same people who are defending Chappelle’s tranny material (not you Greycap) bashed ME for supporting his use of the word “nigger” (I have said everything must be looked at in context) But I guess everyone has something that sticks in their craw....

who bashed you dude lol and the topic isn't about you. let's keep it on the Chappelle 'controversy'

Comedy G.O.A.T.: Dave Chappelle’s Controversial Netflix Special Is the Bravest Stand-Up Ever | Ep 66

With media pressure to cancel comedian Dave Chappelle, Whitlock stands up for the stand-up legend. Chappelle’s new Netflix special, “The Closer,” roasts the feminist and LGBTQ movements. How are his jokes also a defense of black manhood? Are Chappelle’s Jewish jokes really anti-Semetic? Joining Whitlock in this discussion are sports journalist Steve Kim and “Informed Dissent” host Leonydus Johnson. Does Kim find Chappelle’s Asian jokes funny or offensive? How does Christian podcaster Johnson compare disgraced comedian Bill Cosby to Chappelle?

Truth is tans actors and people are going to have to learn to avoid venues and 'media' outlets that may offend them. The fact is most people are not going to overall 'accept' transgender and non binary. And that doesn't mean people will have to be violent towards them, etc

I've always hated the word 'acceptance' - to me, it implies one is higher than another (like blacks who look for acceptance from whites). No one needs a 'stamp of approval' from anyone. We don't have to like each other or another person's lifestyle. Just live your life, don't interfere with others lives and obey the law.

I don't know another word or term to describe it. Tolerate?
I mean this stuff is being presented to us. There are people/teachers who have been suspended for not 'agreeing' with stuff.
.
I mean if tomorrow you are expected to use your pronouns, have you thought it through on what that means? I don't mean you particulalry.

.

If we want people to not interfer or live their lives, how does that work for the people who don't believe a man can say he is a woman and then be allowed into girls/womens changing spaces? who is being interfered on

.

I still say the comparison of 'race/ethnicity' is not comparable to trans issues. Whenever I see a blm sign on a lawn there is a trans flag hanging over it. And you never see it in black neighborhoods or homes. This phenomenom is is a bit confusing.

But Dave is expected to 'accept' it and support. I mean he's talked about situations where he was expected or pushed to basically do drag on shows.

.

I'm going to have to check it out to see if he is encouraging violence or just saying he doesn't accept it

he talks about that 'acceptance' part in this clip

A transgender Netflix employee who spoke out publicly about the transphobic commentary in Dave Chappelle’s new comedy special has reportedly been suspended.

Terra Field, a senior software engineer, was suspended for “trying to attend a meeting she wasn’t invited to,” a source told The Verge.

Neither a spokesperson for Netflix nor Field immediately returned a request for comment.

A Twitter thread posted by Field Wednesday, a day after “The Closer” hit the streaming service, criticized Netflix for platforming and promoting “another Chappelle special where he attacks the trans community, and the very validity of transness — all while trying to pit us against other marginalized groups.”

Family Of Trans Woman Defends Dave Chappelle - CH News


- Continuing our coverage of Dave Chappelle's recent Netflix special, 'The Closer' we hear from Daphne Dorman's family who have come forward to defend Chappelle.

"Daphne was in awe of Dave's graciousness...

she did not find his jokes rude, crude, off-coloring, off-putting, anything. She thought his jokes were funny. Daphne understood humor and comedy- she was not offended.

Why would her family be offended?"

I watched it yesterday and I understand why people think that Dave is transphobic but in my opinion he´s not transphobic at all and is all about empathy and mutual compassion in society.

But you have to read between the lines and pay attention to what he´s really saying.

His constant use of the n-word, and calling people ,including his own wife, bitches, and his own kids "motherfucker" distracts a bit from his message and his true intentions.

Chappelle furor highlights dilemma for Netflix

Daniel Arkin 2 hrs ago
Like 11 Comments|15

On Monday afternoon, a Twitter account called @Most posted a message in honor of National Coming Out Day. “We support your right to come out however and whenever feels safe and right for you,” the tweet said in part.

© Provided by NBC News

In minutes, Twitter users replied to the tweet with charges of hypocrisy. The LGBTQ-themed account is run by Netflix — the same Netflix that is facing intense criticism for a new Dave Chappelle stand-up special that many critics have called transphobic and anti-LGBTQ.

Netflix is by no means the only media company or Hollywood studio to be accused of double standards or to find itself embroiled in knotty political, artistic and ethical quandaries. But the firestorm over Chappelle’s special nonetheless highlights a dilemma that might be unique to Netflix.

The streaming giant is committed to free expression and artistic license, but it has also publicly aligned itself with prominent liberals and progressive causes.

“We work hard to support their creative freedom — even though this means there will always be content on Netflix some people believe is harmful,” Ted Sarandos, a co-CEO, said in a memo to staff obtained by The Verge.

In the memo, Sarandos pointed out that Netflix has stood by provocative content in the past, such as the French film “Cuties” and the TV series “13 Reasons Why.”

Damon Wayans Defends Dave Chappelle’s Netflix Special, Rips Critics as ‘Slaves to PC Culture’

Dessi Gomez 42 mins ago

Comic and actor Damon Wayans praised Dave Chappelle for exercising his free speech in “The Closer.”

Dave Chappelle and Damon Wayans

“Comedians, we were slaves to PC culture,” Wayans continued. “As an artist, [Chappelle]’s Van Gogh. He cut his ear off. He’s trying to tell us it’s OK.”

The TMZ reporter pushed Wayans further, asking if he felt he could be more himself now.

“I’m always being free,” Wayans responded. “I think he’s saying ‘With all that I have, I’m not afraid to lose it for the sake of freeness of speech. You can’t edit yourself.'”

When asked specifically about the LGBTQ+ community’s response to the special, Wayans said, “I can’t speak about the content of the show.” He then gestured more broadly to the topic of free speech.

“There’s a bigger conversation we need to have,” he said. “Somebody needs to look us in the eye and go ‘You’re no longer free in this country. You’re not free to say what you want, you say what we want you to say. Otherwise we will cancel you.’ That’s the discussion we need to have.”

“The Closer” currently holds a spot in Netflix’s Top 10 ranking, sitting at third.

I wanted to have a thread about HOLLYWOOD and what happens in this 'culture'

.

my brother said, logically when it comes to artists they are creating things, and when it comes to actors they tend to want to push boundaries. With that mindset, as humans people can tend to really push limits and create things to try to stay ahead of the creative curve.
So pushing images especially sexual/gender, really get's 'experimented' with a lot and in darker ways.

.

I remember listening to this piece by Chappelle on being pressed to wear a dress. There are other male actors/comedians that talked about this as well.

Trans employees at Netflix plan walkout protest despite suspended staffer's reinstatement

Emma Colton 1 hr ago

.

Transgender employees of Netflix are planning a walkout in protest of the company’s co-CEO defending comedian Dave Chappelle’s "The Closer" special on the streaming platform. The announcement comes as one trans employee was suspended - and later reinstated - for crashing a quarterly business review meeting she was not invited to attend.

"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!" a leader for the trans employee resource group at Netflix wrote in an internal organizing message, The Verge reported.

The walkout is scheduled for Oct. 20. It comes in response to co-CEO Ted Sarandos defending the company’s collaboration with Chappelle, who has faced years of backlash and claims that he is "transphobic," including after "The Closer" was released this month.

"Chappelle is one of the most popular stand-up comedians today, and we have a long standing deal with him. His last special 'Sticks & Stones,' also controversial, is our most watched, stickiest and most award winning stand-up special to date," Sarandos wrote in an internal memo obtained by Variety...

that may be lol and I could only listen to so much... but read the comments



I’m sure the comments are equally ignorant I can only stomach so much stupidity and nonsense



not as much as comment in agreement

Louis has a lot of social sway when comes to certain communities, even if they don't follow that dogma





He has no sway over anyone with 3 functioning brain cells. His time is over- he’s pretty irrelevant nowadays

BACK ON TOPIC......Haters, especially some of the Ts in LGBT, have been hating on Dave since his refusal to wear a dress. Unlike some of his peers [READ: Kevin Hart!], Dave will NEVER sell out his self-respect OR compromise his masculinity for anyone.

Did you watch it?
.
I watched it last night. And reading peoples adverse reactions, I was expecting some hardcore anti-trans stuff. And it really was not.

.

He ended it talking about a white trans-woman who was a huge fan of his. And wanted to be a comedian. It's a really great story. The trans person ended up comitting suicide. They supported Dave and the trans community came after her.

.

It was very good, lol he said he's never going to mention gays again lol something like that

He might get cancelled for that too

Netflix Chief Again Defends Chappelle Special: ‘Content Doesn’t Directly Translate to Real-World Harm’

Netflix’s co-chief executive officer and chief content officer Ted Sarandos has once again defended the company’s decision to release Dave Chappelle’s controversial stand-up special “The Closer” on the platform. Chappelle has come under fire since the special’s release for making homophobic and anti-trans jokes. Organizations such as GLAAD and The National Black Justice Coalition condemned “The Closer” and urged Netflix to pull the special from its platform.
.

After an initial October 8 memo send to leadership brass, on Monday Sarandos sent out an all-staff memo (obtained by Variety) and the backlash was swift. A group of trans employees and allies is planning a staff walkout on Wednesday, October 20 in protest of Sarandos’ comments. The internet was quick to weigh in on Sarandos’ assertion that content “doesn’t directly translate to real-world harm.”

Here is the race baiting and hypocracy...

So trans people who are 'white' don't get attacked, or discriminated against?

.

.

“What we object to is the harm that content like this does to the trans community (especially trans people of color) and VERY specifically Black trans women. People who look like me aren’t being killed. I’m a white woman,” wrote out trans Netflix employee Terra Field in a now-viral Twitter thread. Field was suspended by the company on October 11 allegedly on the grounds of attending a quarterly business review she was not invited to, but has since been reinstated at Netflix.

I've stayed out of this thread after my reply, because politics or whatever always goes down a shitty wormhole vortex on the Org. I also hadn't watched the special.

Until today.

A funny note: I noticed two white women, rather portly one with funky color hair, get a little non-smiling when he said something about white women with dirty feet in Michigan.

As a gay person who is doing his best to be anti-racist, and pro-human, etc etc etc: I didn't find Chappelle to be homophobic, transphobic, misogynistic, or racist. Even he said it in the special, if you think that's what he's saying, you're not listening. People are acting in the base moment, rather than taking a few steps back and looking at the whole picture.

If it made LGBTQIAWXYZ folks uncomfortable, then maybe we need to be. Maybe we need to stop thinking of ourselves as the next Black rights movement, that we can fully identify with Black people's struggles for equal rights, because we can't. Maybe we need to support and be proactive with other marginalized communities, and frankly use our whiteness to affect change.

Comedians are supposed to reflect society back to us, with humor, wit, sarcasm. Dave has done that, but folks don't like the delivery. If you want period jokes and boob jokes and dick jokes front to back, go watch Amy Schumer or Sarah Silverman. If you want something more intelligent, listen to George Carlin, Richard Pryor, or Dave Chappelle.

But maybe, we should just be listening more than we're all getting up in arms about something. Dave Chappelle is not any of those things people peg him to be. He's thinking outside the box, looking at a larger picture. Frankly, a lot like James Baldwin did, who got on racist 1960s television and spoke the motherfucking truth about being Black in America. Now, we have Dave on Netflix - a company who has practiced racist and sexist policies againts folks like Wanda Sykes and Mo'Nique but paid huge sums to not-so-funny women like Amy Schumer - doing the same thing, and folks are pissed off.

Well, if you're pissed off, you're not listening.
