"If you’d find it hard to support our content breadth, Netflix may not be the best place for you," the memo says. "As employees we support the principle that Netflix offers a diversity of stories, even if we find some titles counter to our own personal values," it adds.

Employees staged a walkout after Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos continued to air Dave Chappelle's special despite its jabs at the transgender community. Netflix acknowledged that some programs might be problematic for some viewers, but the streaming service is choosing not to silence artists. "Not everyone will like — or agree with — everything on our service," the memo said.

Netflix says it lost 200,000 subscribers in the first quarter. The company blames competition and password sharing for the drop. Netflix says it has 222 million paying customers in the U.S. and Canada, plus an additional 100 million in other countries. It expects to lose another 2 million subscribers in second quarter.
