How Chappelle Fueled A Netflix Walkout

What A Day - October 21, 2021 - 18:59

People gathered in solidarity with trans Netflix employees and their allies who held a walkout, yesterday, in protest of the streaming service’s endorsing and platforming of Dave Chappelle’s transphobia. We hear from B. Pagels-Minor, a now-former Netflix employee who was fired for allegedly leaking confidential information to the press, which they deny doing. And in headlines: the man responsible for the 2018 high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, pleaded guilty, the Biden administration laid out plans to vaccinate children aged 5-11, and Facebook plans to rebrand and change the company’s name.Show Notes:The 19th: “Netflix employees and their allies walk out over company’s handling of anti-trans Chappelle special” – https://bit.ly/3vxtn1dFor a transcript of this episode, please visit crooked.com/whataday
