Surprise, in Trump’s America some white people are getting butthurt over Netflix’s new series Dear White People. The show, based off of the movie of the same name, is the latest original series to come to the streaming service, and apparently, a lot of (white) people aren’t too happy about it.
Today, #BoycottNetflix started trending on Twitter when a large number of tweets like these began to flood the internet.
(Warning: A lot of dumb a** ignorant comments to follow.)
#BoycottNetflix Liberal corporations dont need our money or they would keep their mouths shut!

I could keep going, and going, and going. There’s a reason this is trending. Just head over to to the #BoycottNetflix page on Twitter to see for yourself.
Luckily, not everyone is rabble, rabble, rabble-ing on Twitter right now. In fact, a lot of people, myself included, are finding this hilarious and helping to keep the trend going for just that reason.

And while no company likes to lose customers, I don’t see Netflix, which had a revenue of $8.83 Billion dollars last year, pulling this series over a some MAGA-loving unsubscribers.
But ultimately, the fact that this is even a thing is ridiculous. I think @OnceASheeple put it best.
