Netflix published its first corporate culture memo update in nearly five years Thursday. The memo reportedly added a new section called “Artistic Expression,” that explains to employees that even content they believe is “harmful” will not be censored, according to Variety.

Variety suggested that the “Artistic Expression” part of the Culture document updates appeared to be, at least in part, a response to the backlash surrounding Dave Chappelle’s “The Closer,” which included commentary on transgenderism. “If you find it hard to support our content breadth, Netflix may not be the best place for you.”

“Entertaining the world is an amazing opportunity and also a challenge because viewers have very different tastes and points of view,” he said. “Entertainment is a challenge, but it is also an opportunity,’’ he added. � “It’s a great time to be in America.” “I’m very proud to be an American.’

“Not everyone will like — or agree with — everything on our service. So we offer a wide variety of TV shows and movies, some of which can be provocative,” the new memo reads. “While every title is different, we approach them based on the same set of principles: we support the artistic expression of the creators we choose to work with.”
