Dave Chappelle Says He's Open to Sitting Down With Netflix Employees Upset By His Transgender Jokes

From ET Online | Newsby Paige Gawley

Dave Chappelle is willing to talk. After Netflix employees staged a walk-out in reaction to comments in the 48-year-old comedian's recent special, The Closer, his rep tells ET that he is open to speaking to those who work at the streaming giant that are upset by his jokes.

At the protest, however, Preston told reporters that she had reached out to the comedian.

"This isn't an instance of cancel culture, because I've invited Dave Chappelle to have transformative dialogue with us on multiple occasions and he has made it clear it is not of interest to him," Preston said. "Just to be clear, this isn't cancel culture, but avoidance of accountability."
