Netflix Exec Fired Over N-Word

Netflix has fired its head of communications over his use of what’s known in the USA as the “N-word” – and, no, it wasn’t “Netflix”.

Jonathan Friedland, who had worked at Netflix for seven years, is said to have used the racial slur during a discussion about the use of offensive terms in comedy.

Head of the streaming giant, Reed Hastings, said he had fired the chief communications officer after learning he allegedly used the term again while discussing the initial incident with human resources.
