    Netflix tells ‘woke’ staff to tolerate diverse opinions or find new jobs

    The memo, first reported by Variety, says: “Entertaining the world is an amazing opportunity and also a challenge because viewers have very different tastes and points of view.

    “Not everyone will like — or agree with — everything on our service.

    “While every title is different, we approach them based on the same set of principles: we support the artistic expression of the creators we choose to work with; we program for a diversity of audiences and tastes; and we let viewers decide what’s appropriate for them, versus having Netflix censor specific artists or voices.

    “As employees we support the principle that Netflix offers a diversity of stories, even if we find some titles counter to our own personal values.

    “Depending on your role, you may need to work on titles you perceive to be harmful.

    “If you’d find it hard to support our content breadth, Netflix may not be the best place for you"



    Excuse you:picard:?

    They love masquerading as a "woke" business until its no longer profitable to pander:wow:

    Woke definitely used to be exclusively for black people. So I still take some offense when people bash "the woke". But just about everybody besides us uses that word to describe anybody with "liberal" opinions.

    Same. Why would they suddenly be trying to apply pressure to the super inclusive, LGBT, social justice crowed?

    Contextually it makes more sense for this to be directed towards people who got a problem with those things. The whole go woke go broke crowd. But then again, I don't know if those type of people are even working for Netflix to begin with, particularly in sizable numbers. Can't really imagine that's the case. Netflix seems to be a very liberal platform.

    I'm confused by this thread.

    Their response shows consistency which is rare in this day am age. They have material that caters to the LGBT community, they stood by Chappelle after his special.

    Kinda sensible for them to draw a line in the sand and let people know what's what.

    considering the stock price hit they just took, layoffs are inevitable at this point

    The best response tbh. They tried to kill Chappelle off for having his own views in a STANDUP COMEDY SPECIAL. They was protesting outside Netflix offices... But guess what, that's a small minority and those specials still pull in huge numbers. They aren't going to cater to LGBT just because SOME employees swing that way. Just turn it off if you don't like, plenty of stuff on Netflix to watch. (Even if their content kinda fell off nowadays)

    "we recognize some y'all might be upset, but you can put your own views and angles out too if you can get a deal with us. we aren't going to bush anyone's content, but we understand if you need to leave us an employee because of that"

    And it's not a public statement on social media (although it acts as one because people will repost it), it's a memo e-mail to all employees.

    I fukks with this move.
