LOS ANGELES (AP) — Two former Netflix employees who raised concerns about anti-transgender comments on Dave Chappelle’s TV special are dropping labor complaints and one has resigned from the company. Terra Field, a senior software engineer who is trans, announced a voluntary resignation on Monday. Field and B. Pagels-Minor also are dropping a National Labor Relations Board complaint that claimed retaliation. Chappelle’s “The Closer” first aired on Oct. 1 and gained millions of views. However, Chapelle’s remarks about the transgender community raised protests within Netflix and from LGBTQ activists. Netflix fired Pagels-Minor last month for allegedly disclosing confidential information, which they’ve denied.
