Dave Chapelle doesn't care if you're mad. Apparently, neither does Netflix.
The trailblazing streaming service issued a new corporate memo this week, telling employees it will not censor or end partnerships with entertainers just because some staffers deem their work personally offensive.
"If you'd find it hard to support our content breadth, Netflix may not be the best place for you," reads the memo, which is part of a new "artistic expression" section of the company's policy, according to Variety.
Netflix's updated internal language comes several months after Chapelle sparked the ire of some employees who claimed his latest special on the platform, The Closer, was "transphobic" due to a handful of jokes he made during the 70-minute performance, Time reported at the time.
The entertainment brand statement indicated employees could be required to work on projects they "perceive to be harmful" and—if that is too difficult a cross to bear—such staffers might be better suited for a different jobs.
"Entertaining the world is an amazing opportunity and also a challenge because viewers have very different tastes and points of view," reads the statement. "So we offer a wide variety of TV shows and movies, some of which can be provocative."
