Washington – “Al-Quds Al-Arabi”:

Netflix CEO Red Hastings revealed that Saudi Arabia allowed the showing of homosexual films, pornography and sex education, in exchange for deleting an episode that included criticism of the Saudi crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, for the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

In an interview with CNN, Hastings said that the giant group had made a decision to remove an episode of the popular talk show “Patriot Act,” which had criticized bin Salman in response to a request from the Saudi government, which claimed that the program violated the country’s laws.

He added that the decision taken two years ago was very difficult, indicating that it ended with the ability to display the episode in Saudi Arabia via YouTube, and not on Netflix applications.

Hastings asserted that Saudi Arabia agreed in return to display programs known for pornographic scenes, including the series “Queer Eye” which deals with general problems for homosexuals, the comedy series “Teaching Sex” that contains pornographic scenes, and the series “Orange is the New Black”, which is a well-known series. It houses dozens of pornographic clips inside a women’s prison.
