Remember when I told you Netflix employees were unhappy about the Chappelle Special, if not check out the video below for a refresher:

WELP! They walked out, see some of the latest from the walkout below:

Yesterday Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos backtracked on some of his actions and comments after some employee's expressed their displeasure with the special:

“I had a group of employees who were definitely feeling pain and hurt from a decision we made. And I think that needs to be acknowledged upfront before you get into the nuts and bolts of anything,” Sarandos told Variety. “I didn’t do that. That was uncharacteristic for me, and it was moving fast and we were trying to answer some really specific questions that were floating.”

Sarandos also reversed course on prior statements about the impact of the platform’s storytelling, admitting that “of course storytelling has an impact on the real world — sometimes positive and sometimes negative.”
