Unfortunately, the streaming service has received quite a lot of backlash whenever they remove popular movies and series.

When Netflix USA announced that they will be removing 'Friends' from the platform in 2020, viewers were not happy. Recently, they also said that they will be removing the hit series 'Breaking Bad' in 2025.

In a Reddit Ask Me Anything session, the co-founder and first Netflix CEO, Marc Randolph, had viewers and users of the platform asking him all their burning questions.

From free subscriptions to the Netflix origin story, he shared a lot of very interesting information, but what most people wanted to know was why the streaming service chooses to remove 'objectively good shows and/or movies' and whether it's with the goal to push Netflix's own productions.

Randolph's response was:

And there you have it.

As it turns out, Netflix is not targeting you personally, even though it might feel like that sometimes.
