Netflix has thrown its support behind Black Lives Matter as violent riots backed by the activist movement escalated late Saturday, resulting in destruction in major cities around the country.
Following Netflix’s move, Amazon Studios and Prime Video as well as Hulu also signaled their support for Black Lives Matter. The trio of streamers are the first Hollywood studios to officially take a stance on the riots by promoting the controversial activist group.
“To be silent is to be complicit,” Netflix tweeted on Saturday. “Black lives matter. We have a platform, and we have a duty to our Black members, employees, creators and talent to speak up.”
