Hannah Gadsby responds to Netflix’s Dave Chappelle Memo

Hannah Gadsby, whose comedy offers Nanette (2017) and Douglas (2020) were both released via Netflix, has released a statement condemning the company’s co-CEO Ted Sarandos for his dismissive messages in response to the reaction to Dave Chappelle’s latest comedy special, The closer. On October 13, in Sarando’s latest written rant about what he thinks stand-up comedy should be, Gadsby’s name in defense of Chappelle and Netflix, he wrote: “Adults can see violence, assault and abuse — or enjoy shocking status – up comedy – without hurting others. We work hard to ensure that marginalized societies are not defined by a single story. So we have sex Education, Orange Is the New Black, Control Z, Hannah Gadsby and Dave Chappelle all on Netflix. ”

On October 15, Gadsby took to Instagram to respond to Sarando’s comments. “Hi Ted Sarandos! Just a quick note to tell you that I would prefer if you did not pull my name into your mess. “Now I have to deal with even more of the hatred and anger that Dave Chappelle’s fans like to unleash on me every time Dave gets $ 20 million to treat his emotionally crippled partial worldview,” Gadsby wrote. “You did not pay me near enough to deal with the real consequences of the hate speech dog whistling you refuse to acknowledge, Ted. Fuck you and your amoral algorithm cult … I do shit with more backbone than you. It’s just a joke! I certainly did not cross a border because you just told the world that there is not one. “Gadsby described the post with” Yes, I saw it all. Leave me alone. #transisbeautiful #comedyisdead #ikilledit. “

Wanda Sykes has also spoken out after Chappelle’s special, tweeting “Just send a little love to my trans sisters” on October 9, the day Sarandos sent a note to staff doubling his support for Chappelle. Sick later clarified on Twitter, “Not being ‘passive aggressive’, just spreading love to a society that needs it.” In 2018, Sykes talked about Netflix giving her an offensively low offer on a stand-up comedy special.
