Netflix issued an apology for calling out the 53 people who have watched “A Christmas Prince” non-stop
Opinions were a bit split on the topic of Netflix’s arguably creepy tweet about the 53 people who watched A Christmas Prince every day for 18 days straight. Many of us found it to be a pretty hilarious call out. But many also noted that for a company that’s tight-lipped about its viewing data generally, the tweet almost felt like a breach of privacy. After all, sometimes you just want your binge-watching habits to stay between you and your Netflix account.
In response to the “yikes” feeling some folks got seeing that A Christmas Prince tweet, Netflix issued a statement ensuring folks that their data is safe.
But it also kinda points out that because the information they tweeted wasn’t specific, it wasn’t exactly exposing anybody.
"The privacy of our members’ viewing is important to us. This information represents overall viewing trends, not the personal viewing information of specific, identified individuals.
But like, Netflix also called out somebody who watched Bee Movie an excessive amount. So we’re sort of expecting this won’t be the end of Netflix’s tweets about its subscribers’ viewing habits. And we’re pretty okay with that, TBH, as long as the streaming site keeps things vague — and hilarious.
Now, if you’re one of the 53 people who watched this movie every day for almost three weeks, we so support you. YOU’RE DOING GREAT WORK. And we’re currently on the road to watching A Christmas Prince that much ourselves. Because, ICYMI, it’s a DELIGHT — and also, the best Netflix movie ever made.
If you haven’t watched yet, what are you waiting for??!!
