Dave Chapelle Exposed Netflix’s Ted Sarandos

Dave Chapelle just released his last of five comedy specials for Netflix called “The Closer”.

Each comedy special Dave Chapelle has released has only raised the tension between him and the LGBTQXYZ community. But this one was the last straw on the tranny’s back.

Spoilers ahead.

This special was dedicated to a drag queen comedian named Daphne Dorman; someone whom Dave became great friends with, and allowed to open his comedy specials even though Daphne bombed terribly. In the special, which is more like a campfire story hour, Dave recounts the story of how he met Daphne, and how Daphne became friends with him because of Dave’s jokes about the trans community. She was a true comedian, and was not offended like most of the LGBT mob on Twitter. Dave tells the story of how her defense of Dave outraged the Twitter mob and sadly, led to Daphne taking his own life.

As you can probably guess, this did not go over too well with the gentle Twitter mobs. And it got Netflix in a lot of hot water. So much so that Netflix had to suspend three trans employees who interrupted an executive meeting to protest.

This week, Netflix’s Co-CEO and former Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos issued a statement saying, “We have a strong belief that content on screen doesn’t directly translate to real-world harm.”

Do you believe him?

This is a statement that is not reflective of what they really believe, and implies that Netflix has some sort of neutrality when it comes to content. On one hand it could be argued that they do in fact believe this; this is why they let little girls dance half naked in Cuties for the sake of exposing why it is bad for little girls to be sexualized for entertainment. It’s not really child porn if it is on their screen, after all.

But on the other hand, we know that Netflix does in fact believe that they are a cultural institution. This is why they are not shelling out big bucks for major Christian blockbusters.  It is also why they won’t allow any documentary series on how the LGBT community destroys the family.

The very reason why Netflix requires all new movies to have that annoyingly out-of-place gay token is because they DO believe that what happens on screen can harm people (more specifically, what is lacking on the screen can harm people).

However, when it benefits them (like it did for Cuties) they are quick to say that what appears on screen doesn’t matter.

Their worldview is inconsistent and cannot survive the most basic scrutiny.

Netflix has an agenda. Netflix knows that stories matter and they are the gatekeepers of their own cultural institution. They know that if they were to start airing television shows and movies from a Christian worldview, then that would harm their liberal worldview.

At LOOR we know that movies and stories can bring harm to the worldviews in opposition to Christianity. This is why we are building a platform that allows Creators to be free to tell the stories that they want, without fear. Signup with LOOR and tell the story you’ve always wanted to tell, that story you thought no one would allow to be told.
