Elon Musk commented on Netflix’s subscriber churn in the first quarter of 2022, saying that the wok virus that struck Netflix caused much of the content to become unviewable.
Woke (from woke, “to wake up”) is a term referring to increased attention to social, racial, sexual justice issues by liberal movements, feminism, and LGBT activism.
Musk agreed with one subscriber who stated that “the wok virus is the biggest threat to civilization.” Another subscriber wrote the following: “It’s not just Netflix. Movies, video games, TV, it’s all infected with a trend that was born out of a fear of offending the green-haired freak next to the ban button. Nothing is original anymore, except what comes from Japan or Korea. Musk replied, “It’s true.
Although Musk is critical of Netflix, he has worked with the company. The Netflix documentary series Countdown: Inspiration4 Mission to Space is about Musk’s SpaceX Inspiration4 mission, and the documentary film Return to Space is about Musk’s aerospace company SpaceX.
Netflix said this week that inflation, the situation in Ukraine and stiff competition have caused it to lose subscribers for the first time in more than a decade. At the same time, Netflix is predicting deeper losses.
Netflix CEO Reed Hastings talked about plans for a new version of the service with ads during a conversation with investors after the release of the financial report. Such a version could be available as early as next year.
