Credit to Netflix for Telling Offended Employees to Quit

CLAY: I was reading this morning, getting ready to the show, and I read this — and we’re covering it at OutKick as well and you can go read about it up at So, Netflix… Obviously, we talked and discussed a lot on this program about the way that Netflix had to deal with the fallout from Dave Chappelle’s show, comedy special, that had transgender jokes in it. By the way, he made fun of everybody.

But the transgender community has been very angry at Dave Chappelle for the jokes that he has made at their expense — and so there was a walkout, there was a protest. To Netflix’s credit, they did not pull down anything for Dave Chappelle. And Dave Chappelle got attacked on the stage last week I think it was in L.A. by a crazy loon who should have been charged with a felony, by the way, but instead got charged with a misdemeanor ’cause it’s almost impossible to get charged with a felony in Los Angeles these days.

But Netflix sent out a memo to all of its employees letting them know that, effectively, if you don’t like working at Netflix because of some of the content we’re creating, maybe you should quit — which, bravo! Maybe it took Netflix stock dropping down by 70%. But I’m reading directly from the memo, which is titled, “Netflix Culture Seeking Excellence.” And it says, “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. Depend…”

I’m reading directly from this memo: “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.” Hey, I’m not defending everything that Netflix does because certainly they’ve been far too woke for my personal opinion, often. But finally telling these woke, Trojan horse, diversity-and-inclusion employees that want to try to tear down the company from the inside: We may not be the right place for you; go somewhere else? Amen. And I hope other companies start to see the exact same as what we just saw from Netflix in that memo.
