Sometimes it feels like the LGBTI community can never have nice things. Netflix gives us a gay storyline in new drama, Elite, and already it’s got homophobes riled up.
However, the photo was soon flooded with negative comments.
One said: ‘wtf Netflix and their stupid liberal agenda’. Another added: ‘The more gay things the faster the world end’.
But it was one comment that made Netflix snap. A random homophobe wrote: ‘Get the fuck off my Instagram. Not ever [sic.] person on the planet is gay. You are trying way too hard.’
The answer to this hate? A flood of rainbows. Just loads of rainbows. ‘sorry I couldn’t read your comment while surrounded by all these rainbows’.
Netflix is getting a bit of a reputation for being the defender of LGBTI people on their service. When RuPaul’s Drag Race star Alyssa Edwards’ show was announced, it of course stirred up some controversy in the homophobic circles.
Netflix quickly ended the homophobia, though. Some haters were not happy and Netflix was having none of it.
One person shared a meme saying: ‘this violated my eyes’.
‘Maybe it’s time for annual optometrist appointment?’ Netflix clapped back quickly.
Another homophobe hoped God would help the streaming service.
‘Thanks for keeping me in your prayers,’ Netflix replied.
