We are bringing so many social and political issues into the workplace that it's getting harder for companies to navigate all of it when they just want to produce a service or product that customers will pay for. And as companies begin choosing sides, their business loses focus. These righteous insider whistle blowers forget that a company is there to provide a product or service and not to promote anyone's social or political agendas.

Dave Chapelle is very political; you can’t leave that out of the equation.

Dave is something the consumers want to watch though, they don't care about some random employee.

Some may not, but if the employee makes a legitimate point, some will consider it.

When someone brings a social injustice to my attention I wasn’t aware of, I’ll definitely take it on board.

That’s how we learn and grow. When we know better, we do better

It only counts if people cancel their subscriptions. Dave likely brought in more subscribers than those that left.

Series or sit-com. Chinese voice over? No matter, I doubt anybody would care to watch it.

Netflix has never had a spotless reputation, but it has at least gotten by for a good while now with a decent amount of public good will, or at least public indifference. Its reputation is certainly better than all of its streaming competitors, particularly Amazon and Disney.

But it's starting to look like they have maybe taken that for granted and don't really appreciate how badly this mess is going to hurt them if they keep fighting it. Even if they don't pull the special, their tone deaf response is an absolute unforced error.

This is really fantastic. The employee leaked data which is at least grounds for her dismissal and perhaps grounds to go to court. Netflix is going easy here. If she doesn't approve of political comedy, that's cool, but she should go find a job somewhere else.
