Dave Chappelle is willing to sit down at the table with Netflix employees who feel like he’s inflicted harm on them with his LGBTQ+ jokes … and it sounds like the ball is now in their court.
The comedian’s rep tells TMZ … Dave would be open to dialogue if folks from Netflix actually reach out to him for a discussion.
Dave’s camp says no one from Netflix has approached Chappelle or his team about setting up a meeting or conversation … which is the opposite of what the woman who organized the Netflix walkout claims.
As we reported … Ashlee Marie Preston says she invited Dave to come to the table to talk about the damage she and others believe he’s inflicted on the LGBTQ+ community, but she said, “Dave chose not to show up.”
Dave’s camp tells us they’re unsure why Ashlee is making those claims … and they say he’s not against open dialogue with any group, as he points out in his Netflix special jokes.
Dave also makes this point in his special … empathy should go both ways and we should get away from cancel culture … so a sit down would make sense.
