Dave Chappelle Under Fire For Jokes About Transgender People In New Comedy Special 'The Closer.' GLAAD & The National Black Justice Coalition Pressuring Netflix To Remove It

Dave Chappelle is drawing a growing wave of criticism for his derogatory comments about the LGBTQ+ community in his newest Netflix stand-up special.

The special, titled “The Closer,” premiered on the streamer on Tuesday & is meant to serve as a final entry in a series of stand-up routines by Chappelle on Netflix. In the new release, the comedian makes explicit jokes about trans women & offers defenses for previous derogatory comments made by figures such as “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling and rapper DaBaby.

Chappelle also references criticism he faced over the past two years for makings jokes about the trans community in his specials “Equanimity” & “Sticks and Stones.”

In a statement, GLAAD called out the pattern of derogatory jokes, saying that “Chappelle’s brand has become synonymous with ridiculing trans people & other marginalized communities.”

The National Black Justice Coalition, a civil rights advocacy group serving the LGBTQ+ community, also provided a statement, urging Netflix to remove the new special from its catalog.

“With 2021 on track to be the deadliest year on record for transgender people in the U.S. — the majority of whom are Black transgender people — Netflix should know better,” NBJC executive director David Johns said. “Perpetuating transphobia perpetuates violence. Netflix should immediately pull ‘The Closer’ from its platform & directly apologize to the transgender community.”
