The liberal backlash over Dave Chappelle’s Netflix special directly impacts Christians and the future of religious liberty, even if believers may find his comedy to be repulsive, says theologian and author Albert Mohler.

Activists within the LGBT community have called for Netflix to pull the special due to Chappelle’s comments on the transgender community and his agreement in the special with author J.K. Rowling, who has argued there are real differences between biological women and transgender women. In 2020, Rowling tweeted, “If sex isn’t real, there’s no same-sex attraction. If sex isn’t real, the lived reality of women globally is erased.”

Some LGBT activists labeled Rowling transphobic and called her a “trans-exclusionary radical feminist” (TERF). Rowling is the author of the Harry Potter book series.

“I’m Team TERF,” Chappelle says in his special, The Closer, which is rated TV-MA. “I agree. I agree, man. Gender is a fact.”

Chappelle added, “Every human being in this room, every human being on Earth, had to pass through the legs of a woman to be on Earth. This is a fact.”
