A serial protestor has again found himself in strife after he tried to get Netflix users in the US to boycott the SVOD service after it decided to air a new sit-com he believed was anti-white.
The Twitter user – who goes by the name “Baked Alaska” – apparently took umbrage at Netflix’s new show titled Dear White People. The show’s a comedy set on a US college campus, however, Baked Alaska took it as bring anti-white and promoting “white genocide” and urged his fellow Netflix users to can their subscriptions in protest.
Check out the Dear White People trailer below:
According to UK’s The Independent, Baked Alaska also tried – unsuccessfully – to get his 123,000 Twitter followers to boycott Starbucks last year after the coffee chain refused to write “Trump” on coffee cups in support of the now-President’s then election campaign. At the time he wrote: “If someone is getting so triggered, they can’t write Trump on a coffee cup at Starbucks and they’re crying liberal tears and they’re calling the cops, that’s insane.We have a culture war to win.”
When Baked Alaska launched his anti-Netflix campaign, the SVOD provider quickly responded to his requests and canned his subscription. He posted a screen-grab of his cancellation, however, he forgot to blank out his email address.
But rather than any group solidarity, Baked Alaska’s followers started signing him up to anything and everything, including 7559 mailing lists. Check out the madness below:
