The transgender activist who helped lead the Netflix/Dave Chappelle walkout has a history of posting hideously offensive anti-gay and anti-Asian slurs online

Oct 28th

There's always a tweet. There's. Always. A. Tweet.

Old tweets from a transgender activist who led the Netflix walkout following the Dave Chapelle comedy special "The Closer" have gone viral for expressing racist, anti-Asian sentiments...

[Chapelle's jokes] led to a company-wide and allies walkout led by trans activist Ashlee Marie Preston outside Netflix headquarters in Los Angeles on Oct. 20, where they pushed for concrete changes and a list of demands.

Amidst the walkout, old tweets written by Preston a decade ago, which appeared to target Asian and Latino communities, recently resurfaced after filmmaker and journalist Matt Orfalea shared screenshots.

Folks, we here at Not The Bee like to offer language warnings before we share the really offensive stuff, but you'd need a warning the size of Montana to prepare you for the filth this man has posted:

Preston has defended himself on social media, arguing that he has already apologized for viciously slandering gay people and Asian people.

I'm thinking there probably won't be a walkout over those tweets. Call me crazy!
