Dave Chappelle has agreed to sit down with transgender employees at Netflix who staged a walkout near the company’s Los Angeles headquarters on Wednesday.

Chappelle, 48, came under fire for transgender jokes in his Netflix comedy special, The Closer.

He remained silent as LGBT+ activists on both sides protested and defended his comedy special.

Dave now says he is willing to sit down at the table with Netflix employees who feel he caused harm to transgender people with his off-color jokes.

The comedian’s rep tells TMZ that Dave is open to dialogue if Netflix employees reach out to him for a discussion.

Dave’s camp says no one from Netflix has approached Chappelle or his team about setting up a meeting, which conflicts with what Netflix employees claim.

Activist Ashlee Marie Preston (pictured) claims Chappelle rejected an invitation to meet with the transgender employees.

As TMZ reported, Preston invited Chappelle to come to the table to talk about the damage he’s inflicted on the LGBTQ+ community, but “Dave chose not to show up.”

Dave made the point in his special, that empathy should go both ways and that transgenders should stop “punching down” on his people.

Kim Kardashian Smolders In Sexy New Selfie & Fans Go Wild Over The ‘Savage’ Caption

Kim Kardashian proved she was an original in a glam new selfie with a sassy caption. Friends and fans were delighted by the message.

The one and only! Kim Kardashian, 41, proved she is the queen of selfies as she shared a smoldering close-up shot to her Instagram Dec. 2. Calling out copycats in her caption, the reality star wrote, “They can steal your recipe but the sauce won’t taste the same.” Kim looked electric while pouting at the camera,  wearing a smooth pink top from her SKIMS collection. Done up in full glam, she flaunted pink lips, contour chiseled cheekbones, fluttering lashes, and long, pin-straight raven locks. In the background, you can see a sliver of Kim’s loyal, longtime bestie La La Anthony, 39, also looking lovely.

While Kim is certainly no stranger to putting on a sultry display, her new love interest Pete Davidson, 28, has a much more relaxed style. But the star is hoping she can get the SNL comic to get “glam” for at least one night. A source close to the pair told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that, while the beauty likes Pete’s regular style, she’s “suggesting that they play dress up.”

“She really wants to show the world how hot he is,” the insider adds. “She doesn’t want to change him or his appearance. She just wants to go glam for a night on the town or out to a show or something in the near future.” Apparently, Pete is down for a makeover. “He is all about it,” the source said. “He would really go along with anything she wanted at this point.”

The social media mogul has reportedly fallen hard and fast for Pete, who a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife she is “absolutely head over heels for.” Meanwhile, estranged husband Kanye West is said to be “devastated” by Kim’s fling. Another source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife, “Kanye is willing to do absolutely anything to get Kim back. He’s asking his friends for advice. Kanye thought Pete and Kim were just for the new Hulu show and it was a fun storyline, but now that he sees this is real, he’s very, very upset.”

RHONJ: Teresa Giudice Relists $2.25M Home After Failed Offer

RHONJ’s Teresa Giudice Relists $2.25M Mansion After Pending Offer Falls Through

The Bravo star tried to sell the mansion in September of 2020, when she listed it at $2.5 million. After no one made an offer, she took $250,000 off the price. In March of 2021, however, an offer was finally pending.

According to New York Post, the home is on the market again. The last offer recently fell through (it was under contract for nine months). Right before Thanksgiving, Teresa listed the house at $2,248,888.

Joe and Teresa purchased the property for $530,000 in 2002. They custom built the house, which was eventually completed in 2008. The mansion has 10,000 square feet, on nearly four acres of land.

The stucco and stone home contains a Cinderella staircase, which was showcased in several scenes on RHONJ, when the daughters played on the steps. The home also features a black marble floor, wine cellar and gourmet chef’s kitchen (with stainless steel appliances and a butler’s pantry). A covered patio and in-ground pool can be seen on the outside.

Teresa held onto the house when she went to prison in 2015, after pleading guilty to fraud. While she served time, Joe took care of the children. When she was released, Joe served his own sentence before being deported to Italy.

Although the exes have gone their separate ways, Joe is now fighting to return to the United States, so he can be with his four daughters again.

Teresa recently stated she was sad to sell their home, but she wanted to move forward in her new life with Luis. The couple purchased a $3.35 million property earlier this year, before getting engaged on the beaches of Greece.

Antonio Brown, 2 others suspended by NFL for submitting fake Covid-19 cards

The NFL suspended Tampa Bay Buccaneers receiver Antonio Brown and two other players for “misrepresenting vaccine status.”

Brown and Buccaneers cornerback Mike Edwards were suspended without pay for the next three games for submitting fake vaccine cards. Free-agent cornerback John Franklin III was also suspended for the same violation.

The three players waived their right to appeal the suspensions. Brown and Edwards will begin serving their suspensions immediately, Yahoo Sports reports.

Franklin will serve his suspension if he’s signed by an NFL team.

“The health and safety of players and personnel is our top priority,” the NFL and NFLPA said in a joint statement on Thursday.

“There is no story,” coach Bruce Arians told Rich Eisen on November 19. “Yeah, [Brown] says he’s vaccinated and has a card, just like everybody else on our football team. There’s a trust factor that goes along with it, and we did our due diligence on everybody. The league will look into the matter and do their due diligence, but it’s really no story.”
