A new corporate memo sent out by Netflix is going to leave a lot of its more woke employees very, very ticked off, as it shows the company taking a hard stance against attempts to silence artistic expression by issuing a warning to those who are offended by some of the streaming service’s content, suggesting these folks might want to look for employment elsewhere.
You can almost guarantee that message sent these woke bozos diving for their safe spaces, demanding cookies and milk, and coloring books to help process the memo.
Variety stated in a report that the changes being made in Netflix’s company culture seems to be due to the backlash the company has faced from woke employees during the last year over comedian Dave Chappelle’s comedy special, which many of these little snowflakes dubbed transphobic.
Here are more details from The Daily Wire:
The updated Netflix Culture memo includes a new section called “Artistic Expression” that states that it will not “censor specific artists or voices” even if employees consider the content “harmful.”
“If you’d find it hard to support our content breadth, Netflix may not be the best place for you,” the memo goes on to say, before adding later that employees may be required to contribute work to projects that they “perceive to be harmful” and that if they have a hard time accepting their work assignment, well, it might be time to look for a job with another company.
“Entertaining the world is an amazing opportunity and also a challenge because viewers have very different tastes and points of view. So we offer a wide variety of TV shows and movies, some of which can be provocative,” the new section said, going on to add, “we support the artistic expression of the creators we choose to work with” and that “we let viewers decide what’s appropriate for them, versus having Netflix censor specific artists or voices.”

Netflix reportedly fired the leader of a trans organization within the company last October who allegedly organized a walkout to protest the company backing Chappelle over his special “The Closer.”
You know, comedians have, since the dawn of time, been known as people who say offensive things. It’s often these jokes that contain the most humor and truth, allowing us to laugh at the absurdity of our own culture and the twists and turns it has taken over the course of the last few decades.
Freedom of speech is what makes this possible. If you can’t support the notion of different sets of beliefs competing on the battlefield of ideas, well, you might want to just go crawl under a rock for the rest of your life.
