Netflix launches new reality show bashing ‘Snowflakes’ after comedy controversy

Netflix rolled out its seemingly “anti-woke” reality show Snowflake Mountain this week, UpRoxx reported.

According to the trailer’s YouTube description, the series features “snowflakes stuck at home with no life skills” who must survive in the wild.

Netflix notes that “Snowflake Mountain” features 10 “spoiled young adults” and its episodes are described as involving deer skinning, fire building and tree climbing.

You can check out the trailer for the show below.

The show comes as Netflix continues to defend comedians who have made transphobic remarks in comedy specials on the on-demand platform.

Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos, who accepted the Entertainer of the Year award at a Lions conference in Cannes on Thursday, reiterated his support for Dave Chappelle and Ricky Gervais, who have joked about trans people.

Sarandos said the service has “always been a supporter of the art” of comedy, Deadline reported, and the company aims to please people with a variety of comedic tastes.

“We’re not going to make everyone happy, but that’s the beauty of on-demand: you can turn it off,” Sarandos said.

“The reason comedy is difficult is because we don’t all laugh at the same thing. We all cry at the same thing, so drama is a little bit easier to pull off, but when it comes to comedy, it’s very different.”
