People take offence over everything these days. Netflix should go ahead with the show, no one is forcing these people to watch the show.


#477

So they should make whatever they feel like making and not care whether it’s offensive or harmful?

Josh O’Connor and Marion Bailey will play Prince Charles and Queen Mother respectively in seasons 3 and 4 of The Crown.

But should they be allowed to make shows that are offensive or harmful, is my point?


#481

What show isn’t offensive to someone to a certain extent these days? Can you imagine how bland TV would be if everyone played it safe all the time?


#482
