Netflix to Defend Gay Jesus film in Brazil Supreme Court

In the complaint filed to the supreme court, Netflix’s lawyers argue that the judge’s decision amounts to censorship and has an impact “equivalent to that of the bomb used in the terrorist attack against the headquarters” of the comedy group. “It silences by means of fear and intimidation.” – Diane Jeantet, Associated Press via Fortune » https://bit.ly/2T4Gplw [photo: Netflix]

Judge orders Netflix to remove gay Jesus comedy special

Whether Netflix actually removes the special will depend on a higher court, but it’s not without precedent: Last year it pulled an episode of The Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj that was critical of Saudi Arabia. Netflix CEO Reed Hastings defended the decision but inferred that if a government objected to LGBTQ content and wanted it removed, Netflix would not comply. – Audra Schroeder, The Daily Dot » https://ift.tt/36IJFHa [photo:Netflix]

‘The Mandalorian’ Vs. ‘The Witcher,’ Disney Plus Vs. Netflix, In One Chart

A lot of the difference here has less to do with which series is loved more, and more about availability. Netflix has been around for years and has almost 160 million subscribers globally. Disney Plus just debuted this past fall, and has far, far less than that, even with an attractive price. So that’s a lot of the difference here, and especially in the worldwide chart where Disney Plus is not even available for months still to come. – Paul Tassi, Forbes » https://ift.tt/2T5vGr4 [photo: Google Trends]
