Hannah Gadsby attacks Dave Chappelle’s defense by Netflix: “F *** you and your amoral algorithm cult”
Hannah Gadsby has attacked Netflix boss Ted Sarandos for defending Dave Chappelle amid backlash against the comedian’s “transphobic” comments in his latest special, The closest.
Sarandos had sent a note to Netflix staff after the initial outcry that mentioned Gadsby, whose comedic specials appeared on the streamer.
“We are working hard to ensure that marginalized communities are not defined by one story,” one read. “So we have Sex education, Orange is the new black, Control Z, Hannah Gadsby and Dave Chappelle all on Netflix. The key to this is increasing diversity within the content team itself.
Gadsby then hit back on Instagram: âHey Ted Sarandos! Just a quick note to let you know that I would prefer you not to slip my name into your mess.
She went on to mention the abuse she suffered from Chappelle fans: âNow I have to deal with even more hate and anger that Dave Chappelle fans love to unleash on me every time Dave gets 20. million dollars to treat his emotional partial worldview delay.
Gadsby concluded by responding to Sarandos’ claims that there is no correlation between entertainment content and real-world hate.
“You didn’t pay me enough to deal with the real-world consequences of the hateful hissing dog you refuse to recognize, Ted,” she said.
“F *** you and your cult of the amoral algorithm. I’m doing bullshit with more backbone than you. It’s just a joke! I definitely didn’t cross a line because you just told the world that there is not.
Gadsby herself created two comedy specials for Netflix that received a total of five Emmy nominations.
