Netflix just fired the organizer of the trans employee walkout
quote:

Netflix has fired a leader of the trans employee resource group who was organizing the upcoming October 20th walkout. The employee, who is Black and currently pregnant, asked not to be named for fear of online harassment. They have been encouraging trans employees and allies to walk out of work in protest of Netflix’s handling of the Dave Chappelle special The Closer. The employee declined to speak to The Verge for this story.

“All these white people are going around talking to the press and speaking publicly on Twitter and the only person who gets fired is the Black person who was quiet the entire time,” says a former employee in an interview with The Verge. “That’s absurd, and just further shows that Black trans people are the ones being targeted in this conversation.”

quote:

The employee was terminated on suspicion of leaking metrics to the press related to the Dave Chappelle special. Those metrics — about how much Netflix paid for The Closer and how many people it reached — subsequently ended up in a report on Bloomberg. While the employee had shared the metrics internally, they spoke out against the leaks to colleagues, worried they might hurt the walkout movement.

Props to Netflix for standing their ground, that’s unfortunately something that we see far too little of these days.

And it sounds like this person no longer wished to be employed by Netflix anyways.

I mean it sounds like the termination had to do with leaking private company data not organizing a walkout.

Maybe this person should have thought of that before engaging in essentially corporate espionage

Oh, so now it’s fine to protect people based on arbitrary conditions, from a frothing mob.

When it’s a man with a family to provide for, it’s fine to destroy their livelihood for some stupid things they said over a decade ago though.

I know I’m in the south, but how many trannies work at fricking Netflix? I’d set the over under at 1.5
