‘Dear White People’ Trans Writer To Boycott Netflix Over Chappelle

Jaclyn Moore has always considered Dave Chappelle one of her “comic heroes.”

“His shadow is huge,” says Moore, who was a writer and co-showrunner on Netflix’s “Dear White People.” “He’s a brilliant goofy comedian, he’s brilliant as a political comedian. He has been brilliant for so so long, but I also don’t think because you’ve been brilliant means that you’re always brilliant.”

Moore announced on Twitter and Instagram on Wednesday night that she would no longer work with Netflix after she watched Chappelle’s latest standup special, “The Closer,” which premiered on the streamer on Tuesday. In the special, Chappelle makes numerous jokes about trans women.

Moore transitioned during the pandemic, a journey she has chronicled across her social media platforms.

“After the Chappelle special, I can’t do this anymore. I won’t work for @netflix again as long as they keep promoting and profiting from dangerous transphobic content,” she wrote on Instagram.

She also tweeted, “I love so many of the people I’ve worked with at Netflix. Brilliant people and executives who have been collaborative and fought for important art….But I’ve been thrown against walls because, “I’m not a ‘real’ woman.” I’ve had beer bottles thrown at me. So, @netflix, I’m done.”

I talked to Moore on Thursday afternoon from New Orleans, where she is working on the Peacock reboot of “Queer As Folk.”

YouTube BANS ‘The Vietnamese Alex Jones’ After Obsessive John Oliver Complained

YouTube has banned a radio host after English “Comedian” John Oliver described him as ‘the Vietnamese Alex Jones’.

Oliver complained on his HBO show that “While Alex Jones has been removed from YouTube for spreading misinformation,” Nguy Vu, the host of King Radio, “is still going strong on the platform despite the fact you just heard him say ‘masks are killing people,’ which clearly violates YouTube’s ban on claims that wearing a mask is dangerous.”

Oliver further whined that “Alex Jones could find his way back on to Youchube (sic) if he could just complete a Rosetta Stone course in Vietnamese.”

Oliver also described YouTube and Facebook as “screamingly screamingly bad” but added that “at least in theory they can be monitored.”

Watch:

Oliver is obsessed with getting people he doesn’t agree with censored, silenced and kicked off big tech platforms, and pitches for it in almost every “comedy” show he does.

Oliver is also obsessed with Alex Jones, even though Jones is already banned from practically every mainstream platform.
