A transgender Netflix employee who was suspended from work after criticizing Dave Chappel’s new special performance program said late Tuesday that she was being reinstated.
“At least I feel justified,” said the employee. Terra Field, tweeted…
Overall, Netflix reportedly suspended three employees after they attended an uninvited virtual business meeting with the company’s top management. Netflix said in an earlier statement that Ms. Field was not suspended for tweets criticizing Mr. Chappel’s show.
Mr. Chappel’s special comedy “Closer” debuted on Netflix on October 5 and was quickly criticized by several organizations, including GLAAD, for “making fun of transgender people.”
Ms Field, a software engineer at Netflix, tweeted last week that the special is “attacking the trans community and the very legitimacy of transness.”
In her Twitter post on Tuesday, she included a correspondence with the company that said it was being fully restored. “Our investigation did not show that you joined the QBR meeting with any malicious intent and that you really didn’t think there was anything wrong with gaining access to this meeting,” the note reads. “Also, when the director shared the link, he confirmed that this is a meeting you can attend.”
Ms Field added in her tweet, “I’m going to take a few days off to relax and try to figure out where I am.”
