GLAAD sent out a tweet lambasting Chappelle for his transphobic comments in his new Netflix special The Closer. Chappelle has also come under fire for his comments in the special that he beat up a butch lesbian who punched him and that she tried to sell the story to TMZ. He also alleged that rapper DaBaby’s homophobia sparked more outrage than the killings of Black Americans. "Dave Chappelle's brand has become synonymous with ridiculing trans people and other marginalized communities," GLAAD tweeted. "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."
