We’re here for Hannah Gadsby slamming Netflix’s co-CEO Ted Sarandos after he used her as an example to defend Chappelle. Sarandos: “We are working hard to ensure marginalized communities aren’t defined by a single story. So we have ‘Sex Education,’ ‘Orange is the New Black,’ ‘Control Z,’ Hannah Gadsby and Dave Chappelle all on Netflix, he wrote. “Key to this is increasing diversity on the content team itself.” Hannah: “Hey Ted Sarandos! Just a quick note to let you know that I would prefer if you didn’t drag my name into your mess,” Gadsby shot back on Instagram late Thursday night. “Now I have to deal with even more of the hate and anger that Dave Chappelle’s fans like to unleash on me every time Dave gets 20 million dollars to process his emotionally stunted partial word view.” “You didn’t pay me nearly enough to deal with the real world consequences of the hate speech dog whistling you refuse to acknowledge, Ted. F you and your amoral algorithm cult…” the Australian comedian continued. “I do shits with more back bone than you. That’s just a joke! I definitely didn’t cross a line because there isn’t one.”
