Even recent accolades and love of "Stranger Things" adorable kids can't shield Netflix from the outrage over its upcoming series "Dear White People."
The series, based off the 2014 movie of the same name, is being branded "racist" towards white people by some Netflix customers and has a slew of internet hotheads calling for a boycott of the show.
In the teaser for "Dear White People," the main character chastises white people over Halloween costumes, specifically pointing out white people dressing up in blackface for the holiday.
As a result, social media is being flooded with photos of people deleting their Netflix accounts, while others are simply threatening to cancel their subscriptions.
See the reactions (below).
