White creator of ‘Dear White People’ (who knew?!) has announced she will boycott Netflix over Dave Chappelle’s special.
Let the irony of that sit for just a moment …

“After the Chappelle special, I can’t do this anymore. I won’t work for @netflix again as long as they keep promoting and profiting from dangerous transphobic content,” she wrote on Instagram.
She also tweeted, “I love so many of the people I’ve worked with at Netflix. Brilliant people and executives who have been collaborative and fought for important art….But I’ve been thrown against walls because, “I’m not a ‘real’ woman.” I’ve had beer bottles thrown at me. So, @netflix, I’m done.”
I talked to Moore on Thursday afternoon from New Orleans, where she is working on the Peacock reboot of “Queer As Folk.”
Not sure how well she thought this would go over …
Not to take away from the discussion around the problems with Dave's new material but SO many questions about what the hell happened to #DearWhitePeople were answered.
Why is there a White show runner for a Black show critiquing White Student Culture from a Black POV? https://t.co/9aow4pNM07

Sounds like Season 4 is a dud.
And now that they’re all finding out who the creator really is?
Also a dud.

White dude trying to cancel a Black man.
Sums it up.
A white man in a dress made a show called #DearWhitePeople to speak on behalf of Black People? Now they're attempting to attack a prominent loved black man in the black community?
Lol, the irony https://t.co/R56pwplAuc

Intersectional identity politics.
Ironic ain’t it?

The fact that this is who was behind that show explains a lot. https://t.co/QimzQfiJhR
