In a clip Chappelle posted to his Instagram on Monday, he said he’s willing to meet with transgender Netflix employees, but only under certain conditions.
“First of all, you cannot come if you have not watched my special from beginning to end,” Chappelle said. “You must come to a place of my choosing at a time of my choosing, and thirdly, you must admit that Hannah Gadsby is not funny.”
The jab at Gadsby—who has Netflix specials of her own in Nanette and Douglas—come after the comedian responded to Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos, after he defended Chappelle’s special using her own work as an example. Gadsby wrote that she would prefer if Sarandos “didn’t drag my name into your mess.”
“Now I have to deal with even more of the hate and anger that Dave Chappelle’s fans like to unleash on me every time Dave gets 20 million dollars to process his emotionally stunted partial world view,” Gadsby wrote. “You didn’t pay me nearly enough to deal with the real world consequences of the hate speech dog whistling you refuse to acknowledge, Ted.”
She continued in her Instagram post, writing “F*ck you and your amoral algorithm cult.”
“I do shits with more back bone than you,” Gadsby wrote. “That’s just a joke! I definitely didn’t cross a line because you just told the world there isn’t one.”
After Chappelle’s post, Gadsby’s fans have been flocking to her defense, with many pointing out that she is, in fact, funny. Check out some of the more notable reactions below.
