Netflix released a new Dave Chappelle special, "What's In A Name?," on Thursday (7/7). The 40-minute special addresses the controversy over last year's The Closer, which many called transphobic, and it was filmed at the Washington DC school that Chappelle graduated from in 1991, the Duke Ellington School of the Arts. The school's theater was to have been renamed after Chappelle, but in June he announced that it would instead be called the "Theater for Artistic Freedom and Expression" following backlash against the plans, including at a heated November visit.
"What's In A Name?" shows the speech Chappelle gave announcing the theater's new name, and Variety reports that it begins with talk of his time at the school, until at around 30 minutes in, he brings up the November visit and ongoing controversy around The Closer.
