Some staff writers of NBC’s Saturday Night Live are so furious about Dave Chappelle hosting this week’s show that they are boycotting the episode to protest the comedian, according to a new report.
“They’re not going to do the show,” an unnamed source told Page Six. “But none of the actors are boycotting.”
The writers are apparently upset at Chappelle over his history of telling jokes about transgender people and his publicly stated belief that gender is rooted in biological reality. “I’m team TERF,” Chappelle said in his recent Netflix special The Closer.
“They cancelled @jk_rowling, they started calling her a TERF. I didn’t even know what that was, but I know that trans people make up words to win arguments… I’m team TERF.”
