This diversity somehow managed to be too converged for Netflix. That’s like being rejected by lung cancer for being too cancerous:
The strategy lead for L.G.B.T.Q. content at Netflix has parted ways with the company just a week after he was the subject of an ‘eyebrow raising’ profile piece in The New York Times.
Fran Tirado, 29, took to Twitter on May 21 to announce he had left the streaming service after 10 months and was on the lookout for a new job.
On May 13, The Times published a profile on Tirado titled ‘The Pandemic Work Diary of Netflix’s Queer Champion’. In the article, the strategist claimed he took edibles and skipped a Q&A with the company’s chief executive, while also boasting that his job included ‘talking about gay porn’.
Diversity is their death sentence.
