Netflix Reinstates Employee Who Spoke Out About Dave Chappelle's 'The Closer'

Netflix has reinstated three employees it suspended earlier this week.

It was reported on Monday (October 11) that the streamer had suspended senior software engineer Terra Field and two other employees after they crashed a meeting of its top executives called “QBR.”

Terra, an out trans person, published a series of tweets last week where she criticized Dave Chappelle‘s latest special The Closer, which has been drawing backlash for it’s anti-trans and LGBTQIA+ comments. A spokesperson for Netflix clarified that her suspension was not related to her tweets but about attending the meeting uninvited.

Terra wrote on Tuesday (October 12), “Netflix has reinstated me after finding that there was no ill-intent in my attending the QBR meeting,” adding, “I’m going to take a few days off to decompress and try to figure out where I’m at. At the very least, I feel vindicated.”

She also included a message she says came directly from Netflix in the tweet.

“Our investigation did not find that you joined the QBR meeting with any ill intent and that you genuinely didn’t think there was anything wrong with seeking access to this meeting,” the message read. “Additionally when a director shared the link it further supported that this was a meeting that you could attend.”

According to THR, the two other staffers who were suspended over attending the meeting were also reinstated.
