Writer-producer Jaclyn Moore says she’ll no longer work with Netflix Inc. following jokes about gay and transgender people that Dave Chappelle made on his new comedy special “The Closer,” which debuted Oct. 5 on the streaming service. 

“After the Chappelle special, I can’t do this anymore,” Moore wrote on Instagram Oct. 6. “I won’t work for @netflix again as long as they keep promoting and profiting from dangerous transphobic content.”
