Netflix recently carried out a round of layoffs, resulting in the termination of 150 employees, Your Content has learned.

The affected individuals were primarily working on projects that focused on marginalized communities, specifically addressing issues such as anti-racism.

This move by the streaming giant has raised concerns about the company’s commitment to such content.

According to Netflix, the layoffs were prompted by a decline in revenue and a decrease in subscribers.

However, critics have voiced their disapproval, arguing that the company disproportionately fired people of color and women.

This is not the first time that Netflix has faced backlash for laying off members of Tudum, its content division primarily composed of women of color, as a similar event occurred in April.

Furthermore, Netflix also let go of nearly 70 employees from its social media and publishing teams, which included prominent platforms like Strong Black Lead, Golden, Con Todo, and Most.

These outlets were known for their focus on serving marginalized communities.

While Netflix justifies the layoffs as a necessary response to financial challenges, many have expressed concerns about the impact on diversity within the company and the future of content dedicated to marginalized communities, according to NewsFeeds.
