The trailer for a controversial new Netflix programme has sparked a fierce race row – losing the entertainment company numerous customers in the process.

More than 250,000 ‘dislikes’ were registered for the Dear White People preview on Friday, just 24 hours after it was officially uploaded to YouTube.

But the true scale of the discontent could be much higher after claims the online broadcaster deleted both a million views and 100,000 accompanying negative comments.

What? You mean White people are tired of being lectured on how racist they are? That is hard to believe……

They are working on the principle that even bad publicity is good publicity.

Remember, they are in the business of attracting eyeballs.

The CEOs need to be sued by their stockholders for stupidity. Piss off half your customers for no return.

Do NOT hit dislike, simply cancel your Netflix account:

You might not believe this but a vote of DISlike also indicates audience contribution, points to the notion that you WATCHED, which is the entire aim.

Ever call a station to complain about a host? You almost surely HELPED his/her career —the goal is to shock, make angry, or cause to laugh, and your call proved the content SUCEEEDED.

Simply DROP your Netflix account and if possible, include a note saying WHY.

Do NOT go and vote dislike, that’s a play for a total sucker.
