CAA calls on Netflix to remove Chappelle special

CAMPAIGN Against Antisemitism is calling for Netflix to remove American comedian Dave Chappelle’s latest stand-up special.

The Closer, which started streaming on Netflix on Tuesday, sees Chappelle reveal that UFO videos gave him an idea for a film.

“In my movie idea, we find out that these aliens are originally from earth — that they’re from an ancient civilisation that achieved interstellar travel and left the earth thousands of years ago,” says Chappelle.

“Some other planet they go to, and things go terrible for them on the other planet, so they come back to earth, [and] decide that they want to claim the earth for their very own. It’s a pretty good plotline, huh? I call it Space Jews.”
