Who is Terra Field? Why Trans Senior Software Engineer at Netflix Suspended?

Terra Field was a Trans Senior Software Engineer at Netflix, according to the source she is suspended from Netflix after trying to attend a meeting she wasn’t invited to. Lately, she criticized Dave Chappelle’s latest comedy special on the platform, The Closer. Regarding this Netflix’s spokesperson said in a statement to The Verge “It is absolutely untrue to say that we have suspended any employees for tweeting about this show,” and added “Our employees are encouraged to disagree openly and we support their right to do so,” and continued “We have a culture that encourages employees to disagree openly. But last week we had three employees (including Terra) who are not Directors join the quarterly meeting for Directors and Vice Presidents without notifying the people who run the meeting first. Our team is investigating all three incidents, and Terra’s suspension was as a result of that investigation. The decision was unrelated to her Tweets”

On October 7th, 2021, Terra Field took to Twitter and wrote “I work at @netflix. Yesterday we launched another Chappelle special where he attacks the trans community, and the very validity of transness – all while trying to pit us against other marginalized groups. You’re going to hear a lot of talk about “offense”. We are not offended,” and then in another tweet, she wrote “Being trans is actually pretty funny, if you’re someone who actually knows about the subject matter. How could volunteering for a second puberty *not* be funny? That isn’t what he is doing though. Our existence is ‘funny’ to him – and when we object to his harm, we’re “offended”.” However, Netflix’s co-CEO Ted Sarandos defended the comedian and said in a statement “Chappelle is one of the most popular stand-up comedians today, and we have a long-standing deal with him. … As with our other talent, we work hard to support their creative freedom — even though this means there will always be content on Netflix some people believe is harmful, like Cuties, 365 Days, 13 Reasons Why or My Unorthodox Life,” and continued “Several of you have also asked where we draw the line on hate. We don’t allow titles on Netflix that are designed to incite hate or violence, and we don’t believe The Closer crosses that line.”
