Netflix Just Told Woke Employees To QUIT Or Shut Up In SHOCKING New Memo

TheQuartering [5/13/2022]

According to TheDailyMail:

Netflix has finally launched a crackdown on woke workers trying to silence artists such as Dave Chappelle.

The streaming service dished out a new ‘culture memo’ telling staff if they are offended by the content they can leave the firm.

Bosses warned they will not ‘censor specific artists or voices’ even if employees consider the content ‘harmful’.

The document also called on workers to tighten their belts and reign in corporate spending as the company’s finances falter.

The ailing platform has shelled out millions of viewers over the last year as rivals Amazon, Disney and Apple pick up steam.

Stocks have nosedived over the last six months from nearly $700 to as low as $166 yesterday despite a slight rise to $174 in pre-market trading.

Meanwhile the company has been at war with itself over airing content some woke workers claim is harmful to them.

Young activists have targeted the likes of comedian Chappelle for jokes about transgender people and aimed to get him cancelled.

But Netflix finally appeared to be stamping out the backlash with its new memo titled: ‘Netflix Culture — Seeking Excellence.’

In a new section called Artistic Expression, it says: ‘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.

‘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.

‘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.’

It adds: ‘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.’

The memo, which was sent to staff on Thursday, is the first update to the culture guide in five years when it used to just be called ‘Netflix Culture’.

But it keeps the core principles of the original document with notes on empowering employee decision-making and calling for candid feedback.
