The freaks and degenerates at Netflix contemplate abandoning their tax breaks in Georgia.
The only company to respond to Variety’s inquiries was Netflix. “We have many women working on productions in Georgia, whose rights, along with millions of others, will be severely restricted by this law,” Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer, said in an exclusive statement. “It’s why we will work with the ACLU and others to fight it in court. Given the legislation has not yet been implemented, we’ll continue to film there, while also supporting partners and artists who choose not to. Should it ever come into effect, we’d rethink our entire investment in Georgia.” CBS referred Variety to comments made by its entertainment president Kelly Kahl, who said at the network’s recent upfront presentation that he would monitor the bill’s progress toward becoming law.
Governor Kemp, don’t wait. Strike them first. Halt the tax breaks. Then, make it a felony for any entertainment production or distribution company, that engages in or supports child molestation, to operate (filming, streaming, existing in, etc.) in Georgia. Netflix would be banned. (Yes, they are probably subject to existing law; the DOJ will surely turn a blind eye, Georgia need not).
