workers to bed. Netflix values the “artistic expression” of its content creators over each employee’s personal thoughts, beliefs and lifestyles. “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,” read the memo.

Comedian Dave Chappelle's "The Closer" debuted on the digital platform in October. Staff members staged a walkout in an effort to demonstrate their collective disapproval of the comedian’s digs. Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos, who maintained his support of the show, sent a not-so-soft note to staff.

Netflix says it will not silence the voices of its artists. The streaming giant acknowledges that its content may be problematic for some viewers. “Not everyone will like — or agree with — everything on our service,” said the broadcaster.“We offer ratings, content warnings and easy to use parental controls.”

The company also reminded peeved employees, “Dream teams are not right for everyone.” “A family is about unconditional love. A dream team is about pushing yourself to be the best possible teammate, caring intensely about your team, and knowing that you may not be on the team forever”
