Netflix staff join protests outside its headquarters over controversial stand-up show by Dave Chappelle
Sky News says staff at Netflix’s headquarters in Hollywood have staged a walkout in protest at the release of a controversial special by the stand-up comedian Dave Chappelle.
Chappelle, one of the biggest names in American comedy, has been accused of making anti-transgender comments in the hour-long special The Closer.
But Netflix has refused to remove the special from its streaming service despite a backlash from the transgender community, both within the company and outside.
Employees joined the planned walkout to take part in a rally outside one of the company main campuses in Hollywood.
