Netflix CEO, Reed Hastings Added To Russia’s Blacklist Of Americans
In retaliation for the country’s economic sanctions imposed in response to the invasion of Ukraine, Russia has added 61 names to its list of banned Americans.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
Netflix’s co-CEO Reed Hastings is listed on the latest list released by Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Monday, June 6, 2022. Over 1000 politicians, artists, and business moguls have been permanently barred from visiting Russian territory, including the Executive.
Remember that immediately after Ukraine’s incursion, the streaming behemoth shut down its Russian operations. According to reports, the streamer lost 700,000 customers as a result of its exit from the market.
President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and actor Morgan Freeman are among the other noteworthy persons on the list dubbed the Russophobia list.
Morgan Freeman ban became a social media craze, with supporters mocking Russia for its decision. Freeman was banned for a 2017 video by the Committee to Investigate Russia accusing Russia of continuing to assault America’s democracy.
Former Senator John McCain, R-Ariz.; Senator Harry Reid, D-Nev.; and former Deputy Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency Melissa Drisko are among the deceased figures on the list.
