Netflix It has a message for all employees who may not agree with the content created …
You might think, Dave Chappell Last year he was criticized for his stand-up comedy show Nearby He did this about the transgender community because of some problematic jokes on the streaming platform. Shortly after the premiere, several Netflix staff members walked out in protest of the 48-year-old comedian’s aggressive digging. However, that still doesn’t swing the CEO Ted SarandosWho defended the decision to keep the chapel and company show up.
Now, it looks like Netflix is doubling down. According to Diversity, The streaming service issued an updated culture memo to its staff on Thursday to include a section called “Artistic Expression” policy. The new memo mentions that the company “will not censor certain artists” and even if other employees consider the content “harmful”, it basically decides to warn everyone who is offended by the content that they may find a job elsewhere. Read this:
“Entertaining the world is an amazing opportunity and also a challenge because viewers have different tastes and perspectives. So we offer a variety of TV shows and movies, some of which can be provocative. To help members make informed choices about what to look for, we offer easy to use ratings, content alerts and parental controls. “

The section continued:
“Not everyone will like or agree with everything we do.” Although each title is different, we approach them based on the same principle: we support the artistic expression of the creators we like to work with; We program for a variety of audiences and tastes; And the Netflix sensor lets viewers decide what is right for them, as opposed to having specific artists or voices. “
It then concludes that anyone’s “personal values” that they have a problem with will not be taken into account, noting:
“As employees we support the principle that Netflix provides a variety of stories, even if we find some headlines that are contrary to our own values. Depending on your role, you may have to work on headlines that you think are harmful. If you find it difficult to support our content expansion, Netflix may not be the best place for you. “
