Netflix has been urged to remove the Dave Chappelle special, The Closer, as it features an ‘anti-LGBT’ joke that may cause offence. 

During the show, the comedian claimed that he’s on ‘team Terf’ – which is an acronym that stands for trans-exclusionary radical feminist – and said he believes that ‘gender is a fact’.

He then went on to reference Harry Potter author J K Rowling and how she was ‘cancelled’ for her anti-trans comments.

Chappelle said: “They cancelled J K Rowling. My god.

“Effectually she said gender was a fact, the trans community got mad as s***, they started calling her a Terf… I’m team Terf. I agree. I agree, man.

“Gender is a fact.”

However, he then went on to insist that he doesn’t have an issue with the trans community.

The 48-year-old continued: “I am just saying that those p****** that they got, you know what I mean? I’m not saying it’s not p****, but it’s beyond p**** or impossible p****. It tastes like p****, but that’s not quite what it is, is it? That’s not blood. That’s beet juice.”

After the hour-long set aired, advocacy group Glaad argued in a review that his comments ‘marginalised’ transgender people.

On Twitter, the group wrote: “Dave Chappelle’s brand has become synonymous with ridiculing trans people and other marginalised communities.

“Negative reviews and viewers loudly condemning his latest special is a message to the industry that audiences don’t support platforming anti-LGBTQ diatribes. We agree.”

This isn’t the first time that Chappelle has been accused of ‘attacking’ the LGBT community.

In one of his earlier Netflix specials, the stand-up comedian discussed the trans community and in particular, Caitlyn Jenner.
