Chappelle has been under fire since the release of his latest Netflix stand up comedy special The Closer, largely in part due to what many perceive as transphobic comments from the comedian. Many have demanded Netflix remove the special altogether, which the streaming service refuses to do.The comedian refuses to back down, though he said he is willing to speak with Netflix employees who oppose his special but “under certain conditions.”
