Bill Maher, Chris Cuomo clash on Dave Chappelle's Netflix special: It isn't 'transphobic'

Critics decried Chappelle as “transphobic” over remarks he made in “The Closer” supporting J.K. Rowling in that gender is based in fact, declaring himself on “team TERF” (trans-exclusionary radical feminist), causing a stir at Netflix among its employees and talent, though the streaming giant stood behind the special amid the uproar. 

BILL MAHER DEFENDS DAVE CHAPPELLE, KNOCKS CRITICS: ‘EVERYONE NEEDS TO NETFLIX AND CHILL THE F— OUT’ 

During an interview on Wednesday, Cuomo kicked off the discussion by claiming Chappelle has a “long history of going after trans people,” adding ‘the homophobia is not much of a push against him as what he says against trans people.” 

Maher, who declared himself as “Team Dave,” pushed back at Cuomo’s premise of the conversation.
