Jaclyn Moore boycotts Netflix over jokes about trans people

In a recent episode of Netflix’s Dave Chappelle: Equanimity, the comedian jokes about transgender people by saying that they look like men in dresses. This has angered Jaclyn Moore, who spearheaded the campaign for Netflix to cancel the show. In response, she announced on Instagram that she would no longer be watching or promoting any Netflix series until their executives apologize and immediately take action against anti-LGBTQ content. Matt Walsh, a blogger, and political commentator have claimed that Moore’s actions are another example of the left’s war on comedy. On October 22nd, he tweeted Netflix can never respect our culture enough to be consistent in their moral judgments and later criticized her for trying to control free speech. Craig L Russell, a singer and songwriter has also criticized the campaign by saying that artists should be free to create whatever art they feel is right.

I have been a huge fan of Dave Chappelle’s comedy since I was 16 years old and watched his show on Comedy Central. In the early 2000s, many people simply called him the funny one of the Chappelle show he was not particularly seen as political or controversial. But as his career continued, he began to accumulate several devoted supporters and haters, particularly after the end of his show. In 2005, Dave Chappelle abruptly left the highly popular show that was making him millions of dollars. In an interview he later expressed how it felt like you’re trapped in this thing, you can’t change the channel. You’re just like a slave, you know. It’s like, ‘I don’t want to do this show anymore.’ And I’m shackled, man!

Chappelle blamed the network executives for never allowing him to use his freedom of speech and creatively express himself without censorship or limitations during its production. He also blamed the media for sensationalizing and blowing out of proportion his use of the N-word in some sketches.

It is not until recently that Chappelle has been receiving more negative press due to his Netflix specials, particularly when he jokes about transgender people by saying that they look like men in dresses. This has angered Jaclyn Moore, who spearheaded the campaign for Netflix to cancel the show. In response, she announced on Instagram that she would no longer be watching or promoting any Netflix series until their executives apologize and immediately take action against anti-LGBTQ content.

Matt Walsh, a blogger, and noted conservative political commentator have also criticized Moore’s actions by likening them to the left’s war on comedy. On October 22nd, he tweeted that Netflix can never respect our culture enough to be consistent in their moral judgments and later criticized Moore for trying to control free speech.

Craig L Russell, a singer, and songwriter has also criticized the campaign by saying that artists should be free to create whatever art they feel is right.

As an individual who has studied political science, mass media, and television production in college, I am greatly concerned with the impact that Netflix’s decision to air this type of content will have on younger generations. This is not an issue of free speech or censorship it is one of responsibility. There are several issues with Chappelle’s jokes about transgender people in his special.

His first joke is that he sees the difference between boys and girls as something that they are born with. This is false transgender individuals do not choose to be transgender. He also says that trans women look like men in dresses which perpetuates a harmful stereotype of trans women by suggesting they are deceptive.
