Dave Chappelle is not retracting the jokes he made in his controversial Netflix stand-up special, "The Closer," even after employees of the streaming platform staged a walkout on Wednesday in protest of the content.

According to a report from Variety, the comic played to a sold-out crowd in London on Wednesday night and told the audience he plans to take "The Closer" on the road if it gets pulled from Netflix. Attendees claimed Chappelle said he would screen the special in 10 cities across the U.S.
