Australian comedian Hannah Gadsby blasted Netflix Inc . Co-Chief Executive Ted Sarandos for being included in the company’s defense of Dave Chappelle’s new special amid growing backlash against the comedian and the streaming platform.

Ms. Gadsby, whose highly praised 2018 special “Nanette” and 2020 special “Douglas” both streamed on Netflix, called out Mr. Sarandos after Variety published an internal memo from Mr. Sarandos that cited Ms. Gadsby as an example of how the company seeks to elevate the voices of marginalized communities.
