Elon Musk pinned a drop in Netflix’s share prices on the “woke mind virus” — which makes the streaming service “unwatchable” — on Tuesday night.
Netflix reported on Tuesday that it lost 200,000 subscribers in the first quarter of 2022 while bracing for 2 million lost subscribers in the second quarter. Shares of the company dropped more than 20% in after-hours trading.
Replying to a Slashdot report about Netflix’s woes posted to Twitter, Musk commented that “the woke mind virus is making Netflix unwatchable.” When machine learning engineer Pranay Pathole in turn argued that the “woke mind virus is the biggest threat to the civilization,” Musk replied with a simple “yes.”

As The Daily Wire has repeatedly covered, Netflix has garnered backlash from viewers on numerous occasions due to its bend toward woke politics and sexually explicit content.
Boston University academic and Critical Race Theory advocate Ibram X. Kendi worked with Netflix to adapt his book “Antiracist Baby” into an animated kids’ show. Chris Nee — the creator of Disney Junior’s hit “Doc McStuffins” — joined Kendi in the project. “Antiracist Baby” introduces “the youngest readers and the grown-ups in their lives to the concept and power of antiracism.” A statement from Netflix said Kendi himself would be producing the show.
Meanwhile, Kendi’s book “Stamped from the Beginning” — which argues that “racist thought is alive and well in America” — would take the form of a documentary. A third Kendi production would center upon “Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, & You,” which is directed toward the young adult audience.
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical.

So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
