Netflix is facing a massive backlash with scores of (white) people cancelling their accounts after the streaming giant launched its first trailer for ‘Dear White People’ – a comedy series about racial politics on a uni campus.

‘Dear White People’ is supposed to “satirise ‘post-racial’ America as students of colour navigate a predominantly white Ivy League college.”
Here’s the trailer:
So judging by the amount of Dislikes on that video and the amount of bitching happening online, there are lots of very angry people who have a massive problem with this show.
Here’s some of the reaction from Twitter:
That last guy made a big mistake broadcasting his own e-mail address like that though – LOL:
So why would it piss people off that there’s a show trying to depict the black experience of attending at a top American university? To be fair, the title ‘Dear White People’ might be a bit condescending and the whole premise of the show is kinda annoyingly pandering, but who really cares at the end of the day, especially if it’s a good show. Besides, most of these Twitter drama queens will probably sign back up to Netflix as soon as Stranger Things 2 drops anyway.
