Netflix Tells Employees to Stop Getting Triggered or Find a New Job

For the first time in years, streaming giant Netflix has updated its corporate culture memo to include some new guidelines surrounding artistic expression that are sure to anger leftists within the company who think their fragile sensibilities ought to determine what the rest of the world is allowed to consume.

Specifically, the memo explains that because Netflix serves a diverse subscriber base, the select few who work on projects aren't allowed to let their own ideology deprive others of the opportunity to enjoy it. And it all seems to be in response to the continued dust-up over the woke's typical unhinged reaction to comedy specials from the irreverent but hilarious Dave Chappelle.

As Variety reported of an update to the memo's "Artistic Expression" section, Netflix's position is a repudiation of the left's censor-happy ways:

"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 reads. "To help members make informed choices about what to watch, we offer ratings, content warnings and easy to use parental controls.

"Not everyone will like — or agree with — everything on our service," the Artistic Expression section continues. "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."

The section concludes, "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."

Good for them.

Or more importantly, alienate half of your customers. I mean how stupid business wise was that whole woke thing.
