Dave Chappelle slams cancel culture amid Netflix transgender furore
BBC News says US comedian Dave Chappelle, whose latest Netflix special sparked a transgender backlash, has hit back at those he says want to “cancel” him.
Chappelle posted on Instagram that he was willing to meet members of the transgender community, amid criticism his comedy show was transphobic.
He also invited viewers to decide whether he had been “cancelled”.
It comes after a small protest last week outside the Netflix headquarters in Los Angeles.
Critics have taken offence at Chappelle’s Netflix special, The Closer, in which he says “gender is a fact” and that LGBT people are “too sensitive”.
