Netflix Pulled Chris Lilly, Edited “13 Reasons Why” And Put Warning

And so on. They’re being called hypocrites in regards to the Chappell thing. What say you?

I had to Google all of that, OP. For anyone else who didn't know:

Chris Lilly is a BBQ chef, Chris Lilley is an Australian comedian. In June 2020 four of Lilley's shows were removed from Netflix in Australia and New Zealand due to blackface and brownface and yellowface.

[quote]Angry Boys features blackface character S.mouse, while Summer Heights High and Jonah From Tonga include Jonah Takalua, for which Lilley wore brown makeup. In We Can Be Heroes, Lilley plays Chinese physics student Ricky Wong.

"13 Reasons Why" edited out a suicide scene.

I still don't know what "Put Warning" is.

OP, are you saying people are comparing a white actor doing racial & ethnic impersonations and a portrayal of teen suicide to Chappelle acknowledging that sex is real?

[quote]What say you?

If I'm understanding you, I say the people making those comparisons aren't too bright.

Netflix is actually now getting sued in a wrongful death class action over “13 Reasons Why.”
