Wow, sounds like he may have said something like “what about comedians saying N****r during a comedy show, is it allowed”? Then telling people, “I was just asking if it will be allowed on our Network, saying N****r”? YOUR FIRED....racist honky....
Oh, just go ahead and shut the whole thing down. The world will be a better place.
He said “Netflix?????”
Blasphemy! He's said it again!
On a related note, can you watch Blazing Saddles on Netflix?
Leftist cannibalism. Tasty
Y can’t they use the word ‘colored’ or ‘negro’?
How many Netflix movies have the N-word in them?
Shouldn’t they ban all those movies?
That’s exactly how it sounds.
“Welcome to HR. This won’t take a minute. Now, please tell us what you said in your staff meeting.”
Mr. Friedland: “ I asked my staff if it was ok to stream a show where the comedian says ‘N____er.’l
HR. “You are fired! Get out! Now!”
It’s really fortunate that he didn’t look at the HR babe for more than five seconds, too. (Look that on up if you haven’t read about it)
You can’t stream it, but you can get the disk.
Maybe I’ll live long enough for it to be recognized the leftists doing this stuff are thin skinned racists.
Wherever a leftist says that you can speak freely, it’s a trap. He’s just analyzing your words from the perspective of how he can punish you.
They left in the n-word, but bleeped out "faggot".
What other word has been stricken from the lexicon?
Not just deemed offensive, but stricken?
Well if the author was white they need to be fired for refrencing the word. Heck all white people that even have heard of the word should be immediatly fired I suppose. And all black people who ever even heard of the word cracker in any context. Everybody should just be fired for everything that might offend anyone. Or maybe we can figure out we have the potential to be one great people together if we dont let the Left divide us into tribes.
In other news, Netflix’s “Dear White People” is now in its 2nd season.
If he had called a white dude a racist cracker, white supremicist, they would have given him a medal.
This seems like a perfect opportunity for a new affirmative action hire. You could keep a black person on staff to be called in to utter the (letter after M)-word whenever necessary.
