NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Fox News host Jesse Watters called Netflix’s latest move a “smart business” during Friday’s “Jesse Watters Primetime” show after the streaming service issued a “culture note” to its audience. employees.

JESSE WATTERS: People need to walk away from all politics and divisions, whether it’s with sports, comedy, music or whatever. The majority of us just want a diversion to shut out all the noise. But when big corporations start waging culture wars and ignore their business mission, people start looking for alternatives. It’s so simple. And good leaders understand that. They know it’s not worth sinking into the woke mud just to make a handful of people happy. No one is ever happy and no one ever respects the people in this cave. Today, streaming service Netflix took a stand by issuing a memo to its employees, 11,000 of them, saying they won’t take tiny positions on every piece of content they post. They are not going to give in to the left, which complains about this humorist or this actor. They’ll just go about their business. And if you’re not satisfied, well, maybe you should get yourself a new job.

What an incredible idea! Let the viewers decide. Thank you. It’s time for corporations to start 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’s airing of a Dave Chappelle special, all because he made jokes that didn’t like… You have no right in this country not to be offended. If you don’t want to work for a company, find a new job. These people were trying to twist the arms of the boss to get what they wanted, and they didn’t care whether the company would end up with a worse product or less revenue. All they cared about was imposing their lack of humor on the rest of us. But Netflix, they don’t care. They tell their employees that we don’t choose sides. You can go out and fight the culture wars if you want, but if that gets in the way of you doing your job, go work somewhere else. If you don’t want to watch Dave Chappelle, watch something else. You don’t have to stop me from looking at it. It’s a smart business. When you put it out there and you can watch anything.
