    Also Chappelle and his manager claim he tried to have a sit down with the Netflix employees angry at his special. But they never would meet him. (She claimed he ghosted her , they are claiming no he did contact Netflix for that)

    It is very important not to get caught up in that it is Ronald McDonald who is saying "Bozo is a clown..."

    That a clown is making the statement takes a serious backseat to the fact that the statement is a truthful statement.

    Just wanna share the headline of the front page of the website you were just on.
    Yikes...never saw that. Just the article popped up in Google search after people were making claims on event organizer of the walk out.

    September 2021 was a hard month. 1st Norm McDonald died and then we learned Disney is ruining Indiana Jones in 2022. Just a hard month to take. Hopefully the film tanks.

    Also basics 101...we have to examine everything in a situation that played out with the walkout. Yes the one deal I was told about was horrible.

    The situation here is...there was a Netflix walkout. And yes it was over terrible jokes made and the organizer of it has a past too.

    One that...well she bragged she assaulted someone with her phone.

    Well I didn't go into detail. There is claims made she assaulted someone with her phone. (These tweets as its claimed came up in 2019 as she was helping Elizabeth Warren on her campaign).

    Yeah, the funny part is that they're saying that the 'reason is unknown', when the fact that Germany doesn't have this problem makes it extremely obvious what the problem actually is.

    I just saw the article and information from my phone. Beyond the heading...

    - There are claims with tweets shown (my phone can't pull them up) that she bragged about assaulting someone with a phone.

    - She apologized saying these were at a bad time in life. They had came up while she worked on Elizabeth Warren campaign in 2019.

    Since I can't link twitter from my phone...the twitter is Matt Orfalea . And I was able to enlarge the tweets. The phone one is there.

    If I had knew the site was bad I'd have just said...go to his twitter.

    Moving onto serious news. A report is claiming the film company doing the Alec Baldwin film...sent home the union people working the film. To bring in un-Union ones. (Likely to save money)

    Not to long after this situation happened. We could see a Midnight Rider suit more than likely from family.

    Oh yeah. This guy doesn't seem all that reliable either. That doesn't mean that a trans person can't be toxic, bigoted, or awful themselves. They can be. Just like Chapelle can be a transphobic bigot while being a black guy. Which he is. And this focus on the leader of the protest against him seems largely intended to distract from Chapelle declaring himself of like mind with people who actively want to legislate transgender people out of existence.

    As for Orfalea, well, this all seems a bit hypocritical coming from him.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...732_story.html

    On Sunday, he put the news on Twitter. Within hours, a 53-year-old Sanders critic in New York, Michele Ferrer, dredged up old videos on his channel, which included offensive language and an altered and sexualized rendition of King’s “I Have a Dream” speech.

    All that tragedy, just to save a few bucks the film company will lose from a court judgment in an inevitable trial. Doesn't make a lick of sense.

    Negative...

    Whoever it was that was saying Dave is anti-trans has nothing to do with the fact that anyone making the statement "Dave is anti-trans..." has made a fundamentally true statement.

    The thing with this lady ...the tweets were a decade old. I had thought they were recently done like...last few years. But she has said she was at a bad time in her life then and apologized for them. That was in 2019 once they came up 1st time.

    In all I'd say this thing has became a very wild story. There is claims about someone else there but its not reliable until proven. And ill wait for a legit site on it. ( i hope its not Fox News...)

    It's not really that wild. Dave Chapelle aligned himself with transphobes in his comedy special and declared himself of like mind. Employees at the company that paid him to hurt them didn't much like being hurt, unsurprisingly, and staged a walk out.

    It's only 'wild' if you get focused on the media circus versus what Chapelle has done and said and to which no real rebuttal of his transphobia can be offered except 'he's a nice guy to me personally and doesn't REALLY wanna hurt anyone'. Character witnesses only go so far when the guy is on video declaring trans people to be fake women.
