Amazon wants DIVERSITY over SUCCESS?

Amazon wants DIVERSITY over SUCCESS?

While television shows are ablaze with woke propaganda and commitment to a progressive agenda, audiences are beginning to tire of it.

Lauren Chen reports that the site Bounding Into Comics has revealed Amazon Studios has scrapped ranking shows based on audience scores “because it revealed audiences found queer stories off-putting.”

This comes after Amazon announced several years ago it would be implementing diversity quotas for its shows — both in front of and behind the cameras.

However, rather than changing the content of the shows, Amazon chose to downplay queer themes in marketing materials for its shows.

Chen says, “How about you just focus on giving the audience what they actually want.”

Kim Masters wrote in an article for the Hollywood Reporter that “multiple sources say [Amazon’s system] often ranked broad series featuring straight, white male leads above all others.”

But Amazon customers aren’t the only ones tired of the woke agenda infiltrating their entertainment.

Bounding Into Comics also reported that “multiple Hollywood focus groups chose a dummy police show versus a woke-styled police show.”

A dummy show is a show that is pitched to audiences to compare to the actual show they plan on releasing.

This dummy police show featured two young, straight, white male detectives; recurring girlfriends; fistfights; car chases; firearms; and muscle cars.

The actual show featured a POC lesbian police officer who planned on fighting for inclusivity in her department and community.

“Here’s the thing,” Chen says, “when people sit down, you know, in front of the TV at the end of a long day at work, they just want to be entertained. They want something that’s fun to get their mind off all the problems they probably have to go through day to day.

“They don’t want some sort of moral lecture, much less from the weirdos in Hollywood who we know are some of the most degenerate people out there."
