Netflix communication head quits over ‘insensitive’ comment

Netflix Chief Communications Officer Jonathan Friedland is leaving the video streaming company. Netflex spokesperson said on Friday without giving more details.

Friedland tweeted that he had spoken in an “insensitive” manner. He said that “Leaders have to be beyond reproach in the example we set and unfortunately I fell short of that standard when I was insensitive in speaking to my team about words that offend in comedy.

Jonathan has spent more than seven years with Netflix and was previously with Walt Disney Co. His departure from Netflix is the latest in a series of top executives resigning over inappropriate behavior. Ford Motor Co former U.S. chief Raj Nair departed abruptly in February after a probe on his behavior, while Intel Corp former Chief Executive Brian Krzanich resigned on Thursday over a relationship with an employee.
