Dozens of Netflix employees staged a demonstration on Wednesday in protest of Dave Chappelle’s latest comedy special, The Closer. According to CNN, 65 protestors walked out of the headquarters building in Los Angeles, prompting people to ask if the special would be removed from Netflix?

The employee walkout began at 10:30 a.m. PST, when they were joined by supporters and members of the Trans community. The group was in protest of “jokes” made during the Dave Chappelle comedy special, that they viewed as hurtful to the community. Demonstrators were also dissatisfied with how higher-ups at Netflix, especially CEO Ted Sarandos, handled the controversy.

“What comedians say in a comedy show does matter and it does have real world consequences,” said Bridget Sampson, one of the protestors on Wednesday. “I didn’t have a problem with most of his humor but to say gender is real and to align with TERFs, (Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminist) who want to deny the reality and existence of transgender people being the gender that they truly are in their mind and heart is very, very harmful.”

Matthew Brough, another supporter of the Netflix employees who staged the walkout, said that he “believed” in free speech, but that “words are harmful, and can lead to violence.”

“This is not only about people’s feelings getting hurt or political correctness, this is about the threats of violence that people in the trans community face every single day,” he said.

In the special, The Closer, Dave Chappelle refers to himself as “Team TERF,” referencing the term for “trans-exclusionary radical feminist,” says that he believes “gender is a fact,” and misgenders a person multiple times throughout a story.

Netflix CEO Ted Serandos has not addressed the demonstration that took place today at the tech company headquarters, but told Variety in an interview that he “screwed up” his initial response.

“His last special ‘Sticks & Stones,’ also controversial, is our most watched, stickiest and most award-winning stand-up special to date,” Serandos originally wrote in a company-wide memo. “As with our other talent, we work hard to support their creative freedom — even though this means there will always be content on Netflix some people believe is harmful.”

He also wrote that Dave Chappelle was “one of the most popular stand-up comedians today, and we have a long standing deal with him.”

Trans employees at Netflix were furious, and after storming an executive meeting, three employees were suspended and eventually one of the unnamed employees was let go.

Realizing that he “screwed up,” he told Variety that he, “should have led with a lot more humanity.”

“I had a group of employees who were definitely feeling pain and hurt from a decision we made. And I think that needs to be acknowledged up front before you get into the nuts and bolts of anything,” he said in retrospect. “In all my communications I should lean into the humanity up front and not make a blanket statement that could land very differently than it was intended.”

Many celebrities spoke out in support of the employees such as Queer Eye‘s Jonathan Van Ness and The Good Place‘s Jameela Jamil.

Dear White People writer and co-show-runner Jaclyn Moore also offered her support, saying that she would “not work with [Netflix] as long as they continue to put out and profit from blatantly and dangerously homophobic content.”

As of Wednesday, The Closer remains up on Netflix’s site, as well as the tech company’s working relationship with Dave Chappelle.

“If this is what being canceled is like, I love it,” Dave Chappelle said after the special was released. “I don’t know what to tell you, except I’m a bad mother-f****r.”
