In comedian Dave Chappelle's most recent special, The Closer, streaming only on Netflix, he ended the show by speaking on his support of author J.K. Rowling, who has become so vocal in her transphobia that the actors from the Harry Potter movies came out in defense of the transgender community. Chappelle then went on to further his commentary undermining transgender women, claimed that he could not be held accountable for this because he had one transgender friend who found him funny, and closed by pitting Black people against transgender people, seeming to forget that there are Black transgender people.
