    I agree - all total carp.

    But I don’t think we should ban them.

    Netflix is a private (publicly traded) company, they can ban whatever they deem appropriate.

    Little Britain - otherwise Daffyd would have to live in Swindon.

    No they cant if they use protected characteristics to decide. That would be discrimination.

    And did they use protected characteristics in this case?

    Please tell me I'm not the only left wing liberal type who is struggling to understand this?

    Regardless of whether you think all blackface is racism, or its mostly racist but needs to be taken in context - I can understand both points of view - what is achieved by removing this? It feels like companies are taking the lazy path to avoid criticism.

    I think Disney have a more balanced approach - a lot of their back catalogue contains stuff that would be considered problematic and they have placed appropriate warnings and explanations in the programme descriptions. It's not wrong to have a discussion about *why* these depictions are problematic, but not allowing anyone to see it just feels like brushing it under the carpet.

    Could this kind of knee-jerk reaction end up having a negative impact on the cause itself? How is it actually helping Black Lives Matter?

    Of course they can - and I said this the other day in the Little Britain thread. But is it helpful?

    It's helpful to Netflix, which is what Directors of Netflix are legally required to care about
