People are pissed off Netflix added an Obongo crony to their board of directors.
“We are delighted to welcome Ambassador Rice to the Netflix board,” Netflix CEO Reed Hastings announced on Wednesday. “For decades, she has tackled difficult, complex global issues with intelligence, integrity, and insight and we look forward to benefiting from her experience and wisdom.”
The news was met with a backlash from some Netflix subscribers, who accused Rice of being a liar who failed to protect Americans during the Libya crisis.
“Susan Rice is a criminal who persecuted and spied on innocent Americans,” Wrote one user. “I’ll be deleting my account and encouraging everyone I know to do the same. I’ve been a customer since 2006. #BoycottNetflix”
Rice, 53, has become a controversial figure for her role in the Obama administration, where she was accused of failing to protect four Americans killed during an attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi at the heart of the Libyan crisis.
Last year, she also admitted to unmasking President Trump’s transition team, leading to her being interviewed by the House Intelligence Committee. It is also alleged that Rice ordered the surveillance of President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign as part of a wider political intelligence operation.
