'SNL' Writers boycott over Dave Chappelle hosting

Dave Chappelle is slated to host 'Saturday Night Live' on Nov. 12. 'Page Six' reports that staff writers are upset about it considering the transphobic comments he made in his 2021 Netflix special, 'The Closer'. As a result, they're not participating in the episode. "They're not going to do the show. But none of the actors are boycotting.", Source, to 'Page Six'. However, Chappelle was reportedly at 30 Rock on Nov. 8 for a meeting with the show's writers and producers.
