Netflix Fires Trans Activist Who Led Walkout

This person was not fired for the walkout, Netflix said.


They/Them were fired because they leaked highly confidential numbers about the viewership of the latest Dave Chappelle special. These are numbers Netflix almost never discloses, unless they want to brag.

Netflix workers planned the walkout to protest statements that its co-CEO Ted Sarandos made about Dave Chappelle’s recently released special, "The Closer." The company claims that it fired the employee in question because the company suspects that they leaked internal information.

"We have let go of an employee for sharing confidential, commercially sensitive information outside the company," a Netflix representative told TechCrunch. "We understand this employee may have been motivated by disappointment and hurt with Netflix, but maintaining a culture of trust and transparency is core to our company."

The documents that Them is suspected of leaking were leaked to suggest that no one really likes Dave Chappelle so Netflix shouldn't be spending so much money on him.

Netflix spent $24.1 million on the "The Closer," slightly more than the $23.6 million it paid for Chappelle's 2019 special, "Sticks & Stones." By comparison, the streaming service spent $3.9 million for "Inside," Bo Burnham's recent hour-and-a-half special. The nine-episode "Squid Game," which delivered the best debut in Netflix history, cost $21.4 million.

By Netflix's own measurement, "Sticks & Stones" had an "impact value" of $19.4 million, meaning it cost more than the value it generated, according to internal documents reviewed by Bloomberg. The company also evaluates its programs by "efficiency," which balances a show’s reach with its price-tag. On that scale, Chappelle's special scored 0.8 -- less than the break-even score of 1. By comparison, Burnham's "Inside" scored 2.8.

Ethan Van Sciver did a great podcast about what happens when you hire SJW political extremists in your company.

Here are some of the main points, with my own elaborations included.

1. Whatever your company used to be in the business of making, that is no longer your primary business. SJWs don't care about the widgets you're making. They take over your company and direct it to produce political extremist propaganda as its main product. Your company will only be permitted to produce widgets to the extent that widget-production helps fund your business' new primary mission of producing propaganda and repression.

If your widget production interferes with the production of politically extremist propaganda, they will sabotage your widget output.

2. SJWs always seek to either curry favor with the human resources and diversity enforcement departments of a company, or, better yet, infest and take over the these departments of a company.

Companies actually allow this because they put most of their diversity hires into human resources and diversity enforcement, thinking that's the way to appease SJWs, and that's where these largely-unskilled, largely mentally-ill incompetents can do the least harm.

That's 100% wrong.

If they were put in any other department -- any department charged with producing things of value-- their toxicity and dysfunction would cause the company to fire them for their malignance. They subtract value; they do not add to it.

But these corporations keep assigning them to the very departments were toxicity and dysfunction are rewarded.

And this, these toxic, dysfunctional people are allowed to rise and exert authority over the previously healthy and productive parts of the company.

3. SJW "employees" will ultimately invert the boss-employee relationship, making themselves the bosses who tell the on-paper CEO and president what they'll be doing now. They achieve this through socio-political blackmail and threats to destroy the company through a coordinated reputational damage operation.

We see this all the time. The SJW extremists are increasingly brazen about asserting that they, not the CEO or president or shareholders, run Bartertown.

Note that Netflix is actually covering up the name of this particular fired SJW. The name should be made known, so that other companies will know this particular person will attempt to harm your company unless Them's political demands are met.

But no, Them will be protected so that they can go on to toxify the next company.

And all of these weakling assholes will continue hiring these people and letting them effectively declare themselves the management of the company.
