Terra Field is a systems engineer based in the San Francisco Bay area who was suspended by Netflix for allegedly messing up an invite-only video meeting about the controversial comedy special. by Chappelle, Closer. For now, she’s taking a break, considering her options and considering where she’ll land next, but one thing she vows to do in every job interview is give what she tweeted in response to Netflix’s decision to stream Chappelle’s transliteration.
“The first thing I would say is, ‘Listen, when you’re in trouble, I’ll talk about it and maybe in public. So please don’t hire me. We can just stick it out until the end,” Field told The Daily Beast.
Chappelle clearly wasn’t determined to do anything other than maintain myth that he was “cancelled.” He broke a public commitment stop the crossword joke just last week in an appearance at Madison Square Garden. He even had harsh words for high school students at his Washington, D.C. alma mater last week when they criticized him. Chappelle used the N word and told the students, “I’m better than all of you,” according to Politico.
Duke Ellington School of the Arts declare that the report is inaccurate and published it will continue with the renaming of a theater in Chappelle’s honor.
Witnessing all of this happening, Field, who now had nothing but time on his hands, had to think.
“I was thinking, ‘What’s the way that I can fight for a good cause at the same time?’ says Field. Her solution was an online fundraising campaign for a gender-affirming health clinic. service to the transgender community in Chappelle’s home state of Ohio.
“Once again I would like to ask everyone to donate to my fundraiser for @EquitasHealth, which is very effective for transgender people in Ohio. Also, what a great day @DaveChappelle was able to raise a sizable sum for them! ”
“And so, not only did I raise money for Equitas Health,” Field told The Daily Beast, “but you know, I publicly called on Dave Chappelle to contribute a sizable sum on behalf of Equitas Health. Since he cares so much about transgender people and cares so much about Ohio and he is an ally of transgender people, it seemed like his donation would make a lot of sense. It was a natural match. ”
“The last two months of my life were more stressful than when I transferred schools. And that is saying something.”

The end at Netflix came as a relief, says Field.
“The last two months of my life were more stressful than when I transferred schools. And that is saying something,” she said. “I am a firm believer in your picking and choosing your battles and I think that’s really what it is, just make a decision that works for my health, my family, B’s health, B’s family and also how much we care about these issues. And I don’t think any of us intend to stay silent about that in the future.”
B is B. Pagels-Minor, a black employee fired by Netflix for allegedly leaking company information spent $24.1 million on the special. They and Field helped organize company walk to protest protected streamer Chappelle in October. Pagels-Minor was pregnant at the time. They told The Daily Beast they had a healthy baby boy.
“He arrived on November 18 a couple of weeks early and is doing amazingly well and has a lot of personality,” Pagels-Minor said in a direct message on Twitter. Both they and Field noted that they could not know the details of their decision Drop their unfair labor practice fees with the National Labor Relations Board, but last month Laurie Burgess, the attorney representing the couple, said her client has “resolved their differences with Netflix”.
A Netflix spokesperson provided this statement to The Daily Beast: “We have resolved our differences in a way that acknowledges the erosion of trust on both sides, and we hope to allow any advance man”.
But there was no response as to whether Netflix would make a corporate contribution to Field’s fund for Equitas Health. Representatives for Chappelle did not respond at press time.
Field said she is satisfied with conversion officer at Google and her former owner, Blizzard, who are fighting agoraphobia in the workplace. Looking back, she has no regrets, about anything.
“I don’t think there’s anything I can change,” Field said. “At the end of the day, if we didn’t do what we did, there wouldn’t be 2,500 people in the Slack conversion channel on Netflix and there wouldn’t be as much attention and we wouldn’t get the calls. This is from the creators we have, saying ‘Hey, I’m not going to work with you if you’re going to produce things like this.’
“About what to give up: a few months of my life and a lot of anxiety for me, to make some meaningful future changes at one of the biggest media companies in the world. and other companies. And that sounds like a bargain to me, and I’ll take it.”
The same goes for her transition and her relationship with her two partners, one of whom has helped her with successful financial budgeting.
“You know, the life I lived before, like it wasn’t a bad life, but it wasn’t mine and there wasn’t much fun in it. And so, the joy I get from really being myself, is worth a huge pile of bullshit. “
