    A new corporate culture memo from Netflix is taking a hardline stance on attempts to silence artistic expression by warning those who are offended by the streaming service's content that they may want to go find a job somewhere else.

    Variety reports that the change in Netflix's company culture appears to be in large part due to the backlash the streaming service faced from woke employees last year over its Dave Chappelle special, which the employees claimed was transphobic.

    The updated Netflix Culture memo includes a new section called "Artistic Expression" that states that it will not "censor specific artists or voices" even if employees consider the content "harmful."

    "If you'd find it hard to support our content breadth, Netflix may not be the best place for you," the memo states, later adding that employees may be required to work on projects that they "perceive to be harmful" and that if they have a hard time accepting their work assignment, they might want to consider working somewhere else.

    "Entertaining the world is an amazing opportunity and also a challenge because viewers have very different tastes and points of view. So we offer a wide variety of TV shows and movies, some of which can be provocative," the new section reads, later adding, "we support the artistic expression of the creators we choose to work with" and that "we let viewers decide what's appropriate for them, versus having Netflix censor specific artists or voices."

    Netflix reportedly fired the leader of a trans organization within the company last October who allegedly organized a walkout to protest the company backing Chappelle over his special "The Closer."

    The Verge reported:

    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.

    The leaking of internal data is highly unusual at Netflix. While the company prides itself on transparency, employees are told that the culture can only thrive when Netflix data remains internal.
