I’m Partying in London …
What Netflix Controversy?!?

Dave Chappelle‘s living it up, seemingly without a concern, ’cause here he is walking out of a packed London nightclub … the same day Netflix employees walked out of work to protest him.
The comedian hit up the super exclusive Annabel’s nightclub Wednesday night … partying at the members-only spot while the controversy over his latest Netflix special kept swirling back home
Safe to say, Dave doesn’t look like he’s feeling the heat from across the pond.
As we reported, Netflix HQ was the scene of a mass protest Wednesday, when employees staged a walkout to show displeasure with the CEO’s decision to keep streaming Dave’s special, “The Closer.”
There’s been a ton of backlash over Dave’s LGBTQ+ jokes, but so far, he doesn’t seem bothered.
Ashlee Marie Preston, who helped organize the Netflix walkout, says she’s invited Dave to have a conversation about the harm she and others believe he’s inflicted onto the LGBTQ+ community, but claims he’s ghosted them.
Looks like it’s going to be hard to reach Dave for now — he’s busy playing sold-out shows and enjoying the nightlife in London … where they don’t seem nearly as heated up about controversy.
