Satire is a genre of literature, and sometimes graphic and performing arts, in which vices, follies, abuses, and shortcomings are held up to ridicule, ideally with the intent of shaming individuals, corporations, government, or society itself into improvement.

  • Netflix to remove all Christian content after complaints from Muslims

    (From Newsthump - this is satire, guys!)
    The quite good video streaming service is pulling all its latest shows featuring Christian themes such as The Vicar of Dibley, Father Dowling Investigates, as well as 1990 smash hit Nuns on the Run. This comes after the Muslim Brotherhood of Bath and Northeast Somerset sent a strongly worded letter to CEO Reed Hastings:
    “It’s bad enough we have to pay for bullshit we can download for free anyway, without Dawn French’s infidel face being thrust into our televisions. And our group of three members speaks for the entire Muslim population, because that’s what we’ve read in the Daily Express.”

    Full article below, but for those outside the UK who don't get the joke about the inoffensive programs they are claimed to be replacing it with, the name Jimmy Savile should make things clearer...(his gravestone was removed and dumped in a landfill for very good reason).
    Netflix are to remove all references to Christ and Christianity from its services after a record number of complaints from Muslims.

    Why would Muslims want to watch Netflix? it filled with content of women showing their ankles. Showing ankles is considered to be an infidel in their beliefs right? oh it also have a lot of content of women showing their hair. They are not allowed to see hair of women who is not their wife. They won't have their 72 virgins reward on their Islamic heaven. This is a ridiculous news.

      Well it is satire, from newsthump (a satire site), and in the satire section, so it is supposed to be ridiculous. It's just supposed to be realistic enough to get you thinking. The real problem is that things that were satire ten years ago are happening in real life now...

        I'm not aware of the shows that they want banned so could someone explain what they are for please? It's stupid really. Imagine if there was a Islamic TV show on Netflix and a christian wrote to Netflix asking for it to be removed. There would be a massive backlash from people. But other way around and they bend over backwards to help them out and agree with them.

        EDIT: And then I realised who the source was xD. So is this actually legitimate news that has been twisted to sound stupid or is it actually completely made up?

          This report may be satire but I am afraid it could really happen.

              This is definitely kind of weird to be honest, since Netflix is a subscription website that no one forces you to watch or pay for, so how come they reported it when it doesn't even affect them in the slightest? and the fact that Netflix agreed is worrying as well.
