Netflix suspended three employees, including a person who identified as queer and transgender, for crashing an executive meeting to express their opposition to comedian Dave Chappelle's comments about transgender people.

Terra Field, the trans queer person, had also criticized the popular video streaming service in a lengthy diatribe on Twitter.

Netflix said Monday that the company suspended the employees for interrupting the executive meeting of about 500 people, and not for voicing opposition to the controversial comedy special.

"It is absolutely untrue to say that we have suspended any employees for tweeting about this show. Our employees are encouraged to disagree openly and we support their right to do so," a Netflix spokesperson told Variety.

Field claimed in the Twitter tirade that comments like those from Chappelle led directly to transgender people of color being murdered.
