Elon Musk said that Netflix is losing popularity because of its liberal views

Billionaire Elon Musk commented on the fall in shares of the streaming platform Netflix and the decline in the number of subscribers. The founder of Tesla and SpaceX attributed this to the dominance of the liberal agenda and the so-called woke culture. The term comes from the verb "wake up" and goes back to the 1930s - then it was slang in the circles of African Americans who tried to fight racism and social injustice. In recent years, the word has become common and has acquired a broader meaning — it denotes everything related to left-wing politics, liberal movements, feminism, LGBT activism.

The Vook virus makes Netflix content unreadable,

— Musk tweeted (blocked in Russia) in the comments to the news about the stock drop.

Wouk culture has also been a frequent topic for memes lately. They also made fun of Netflix's policy on the net, ridiculing the company's desire to make projects as inclusive as possible, sometimes to the detriment of realism or fidelity to the original source.

Musk himself has also previously criticized vocalism, calling the trend "one of the biggest threats to modern civilization." In an interview for the satirical blog The Babylon Bee, he also noted that the movement leads only to division and hatred in society.

The decrease in the number of Netflix users was due to the company's withdrawal from the Russian market, as well as the increase in subscription prices. Due to the fall in Netflix shares, it lost its market capitalization by $ 54 billion in one day. On Wednesday, the stock lost 35.1% in price and fell to $226.19 per share, which was the biggest drop in one day for Netflix in history in percentage terms. Netflix shares have lost 65% of their value over the past six months.
