Comedian Dave Chappelle said Monday he'd be willing to meet with transgender employees of Netflix who have called for the streaming platform to remove his October comedy special, "The Closer.".

"First of all, you cannot come if you have not watched my special from beginning to end," he said in a video posted Monday to Instagram.

Gadsby, a comedian whose work has also been streamed on Netflix, said on Instagram that Chappelle's special would unleash "hate and anger" for the LGBTQ community as Chappelle makes millions of dollars "to process his emotionally stunted partial world view.".

"The Closer," featuring Chappelle's views on transgender rights and identity, has outraged many in the LGBTQ community.

Dozens of Netflix employees walked out of the company's headquarters in Los Angeles on Wednesday to protest its continued streaming of the special.

"The stakes are high but sometimes those who are unfamiliar with real transgender people can’t see or understand how harmful their words and actions are to those real people," he said.

He said that since the "The Closer" debuted to instantaneous backlash on Oct.

Chappelle said the backlash wasn't the product of the transgender community
