Group of Netflix employees calls for walkout amid tensions over Dave Chappelle’s show

Tensions are mounting within Netflix Inc. over a special Dave Chappelle stand-up that some employees have called offensive to the transgender community, the latest clash between the streaming giant’s radical franchise culture and its adherence to creative freedom.

A group of transgender employees at Netflix are encouraging staff to hold a walkout next Wednesday to protest the recent defense by co-CEO and director of content, Ted Sarandos, of Mr. Chappelle’s special. The walkout plans had already been reported by the Verge and confirmed by Netflix.
