Jesse Watters has praised Netflix after the streaming giant finally stood up to its woke employees who were threatening to sink the company.
As Slay News first reported earlier this week, Netflix issued a new culture memo where they told woke employees to quit if they don’t like some content produced by the network.
“People need to get away from all the politics and division, whether it’s with sports, comedy, music, or whatever,” Watters said.
“The majority of us just want a diversion to turn off all the noise.
“But when large companies start fighting the culture wars and ignoring the mission, which is business, people start looking for alternatives.
“It’s that simple. And good leaders understand that.
“They know it’s not worth sinking into the woke muck just to make a handful of people happy.
“No one’s ever happy and no one ever respects people that cave,” Watters noted.
“Today, the streaming service Netflix took a stand, putting out a memo to its employees, 11,000 of them, saying they aren’t going to take tiny little stands over every single piece of content they put out.
“They’re not going to cave to the left who complain about this comedian or this actor.
“They’re just going to go about their business.
“And if you’re not happy with it, well, maybe you should find yourself a new job.
“What an amazing idea! Letting the viewers decide.
“Thank you. It’s about time companies started treating us like adults.
“This memo was a direct response to some whiny employees who just a few months ago were protesting and crying over the company airing a Dave Chappelle special, all because he made some jokes that didn’t like.
“You don’t have a right in this country to not be offended. If you don’t want to work for a company, find a new job.
“These people were trying to twist the boss’s arms into getting their way, and they didn’t care if the company ended up having a worse product or less revenue.
“All they cared about was forcing their lack of sense of humor on the rest of us.
“But Netflix, they couldn’t care less.
“They’re telling their employees, we’re not picking sides.
“You can go out and fight in the culture war if you want, but if it keeps you from doing your job, go work somewhere else.
“If you don’t want to watch Dave Chappelle, watch something else. You don’t have to keep me from watching it.
“It’s smart corporate business.
“When you put it out there and then you can watch whatever,” Jesse said.
The updated Netflix “Culture memo” has a new section called “Artistic Expression.”
Netflix says the company will not “censor specific artists or voices” even if employees complain that the content is “harmful.”
“If you’d find it hard to support our content breadth, Netflix may not be the best place for you,” the company is finally telling employees.
A few years and billions in stock price late but it is the only way forward – more freedom not less – through these uncertain times.
The memo 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,” 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.
“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.”
