Streaming video giant Netflix has just revised its company culture guidelines to include an ‘artistic expression’ section that tells employees they can quit if they do not want to work on content they disagree with, Business Insider is reporting.


“Not everyone will like — or agree with — everything on our service,” note the updated culture guidelines which have been reviewed for the first time since 2017. “We let viewers decide what’s appropriate for them, versus having Netflix censor specific artists or voices.”

“Depending on your role, you may need to work on titles you perceive to be harmful. If you’d find it hard to support our content breadth, Netflix may not be the best place for you,” adds the Netflix memo.

Netflix has been discussing cultural issues within the company for the past 18 months, a spokesman told The Wall Street Journal. The recent update to the website aims to help prospective employees “make better informed decisions about whether Netflix is the right company for them,” the spokesman said. 

Last year, Netflix employees planned a walk-out to protest Dave Chappelle’s controversial standup special, “The Closer,” in which Chappelle makes transphobic comments.
