Transgender Netflix employee Terra Field, who expressed displeasure with Dave Chappelle’s program “The Closer,” has resigned from her position at the streaming service.
Chappelle’s Netflix show enraged officials from the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) and the National Black Justice Coalition, who complained about the comedian’s treatment of transgender men and women throughout the film.
What most don’t realize is that Chappelle is a comedian and they make jokes on everyone! During his comedy special, he takes a position on one issue at one point “Activists targeted “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling last year (20) when she expressed her controversial views on transgender people, claiming that “Gender is a fact.” Rowling has since apologized due to the LGBTQ community bullying her and trying to cancel culture of her career. A woman’s legs were required to be passed through by every human being in this room, and by extension, by every human being on the planet. That is a proven truth,” is what got her in trouble with that community. Crazy huh?

After Chappelle declared his support for “Team TERF” (trans-exclusionary radical feminist) during a joke segment, he raised eyebrows by saying that the blood found in transgender women’s vaginas is “beet juice.” Chappelle has since apologized for his remarks because it seemingly hurt feelings.
Terra, a software engineer and trans program manager B. Pagels-Minor filed charges of unfair labor practices against the streaming service, claiming that Netflix took steps “to discourage employees from speaking out about working conditions, including, but not limited to, seeking to create a safe and affirming work environment for Netflix employees, speaking out about Netflix’s products and the impact of Netflix’s product choices on the LGBTQ+ community, and providing support for employees…”
Terra has now resigned from the organization, writing on Twitter, “I’m not pleased with how things ended out, but I believe this is the best solution for all parties involved.”
“Shortly after B. was fired for something I did not and do not believe they did, I made a decision: sink or swim, I was going to walk side by side with B. as they had for so many of us while they led the Trans* ERG,” she writes in a copy of the resignation letter she sent to her team and the trans employee resource group at Netflix.

“B. gave birth to their kid only a few days ago. They are both happy and healthy, and for me, it is the note on which I would want this chapter of my life to come to a conclusion. I want to concentrate on the happiness rather than the sorrow.”
As reported by NBC News, the couple has dropped the allegations, with their attorney Laurie Burgess stating that her “clients have addressed their disagreements with Netflix and will be voluntarily dropping their NLRB claim.”
The firm and its workers “have addressed our issues in a manner that respects the loss of trust on both sides and, we hope, allows everyone to move forward,” a Netflix representative said.
