Fans Are Outraged
Here are some of the reactions of parents and kids from tweeter reading the issue:
‘Netflix has no idea how traumatic it is to do things like this unannounced and without warning. My autistic son literally had a meltdown because of this.’
‘Omg yes! My daughter was in the middle of watching episodes when it stopped auto-playing. I went to fix it and it was gone! She doesn’t even give the new stuff her attention, she dislikes it. It’s so frustrating because it was one of her favorites.’
Any idea when/if Thomas & Friends seasons 22 + 23 will be back on? I had a very sad little 3-year-old this morning when his favorite show was suddenly removed from Netflix Disappointed face
‘That’s so sad. I usually check each month with what’s leaving Netflix and I saw no warning about this’
