Previously, Netflix had estimated that it would gain 2.5 million subscribers in Q1. However, the suspension of its service in Russia cost it 700,000 subscribers.
The disappointing earnings report caused Netflix’s stock price to tumble about 23 percent. And among the people who celebrated the news, happened to be none other than Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
“The woke mind virus is making Netflix unwatchable,” Musk tweeted late Tuesday night. He was responding to a report about Netflix’s disappointing numbers.
When a user responded to Musk that the “Woke mind virus is the biggest threat to the civilization,” Musk agreed, replying, “Yes.”
“Not just Netflix. Movies in general, videogames, tv, it’s all infested with current year trend woke garbage for fear offending a green haired freak next to the ban button. Nothing original anymore at all, except for media coming out of places like Japan or Korea, ironically,” another user who goes by @nichegamer tweeted at Musk.
Musk replied again saying “true” and added, “Can they please just make sci-fi/fantasy at least *mostly* about sci-fi/fantasy.”
By highlighting “the woke mind virus”, Musk appears to be taking issue with Netflix’s attempts to offer more diverse content on its platform. In recent years, the streamer has made a greater effort to highlight LGBTQ+ storytelling.
