The Office episode with Blackface was edited for Netflix


An episode of season 9 of The Office, “Dwight Christmas”, is being edited to be streamed to remove a scene in which a character appears in black. According to Variety, the scene will be removed from the episode while the series airs on Netflix and remain in place when The Office changes streaming house, to the NBCUniversal Peacock platform in 2021. Greg Daniels, released the following statement:

“The Office involves a group of people who try to work together with mutual respect despite the inappropriate actions of their boss and deputy director,” said Daniels. “The show used satire to denounce unacceptable behavior and deliver an inclusive message. Today we cut a shot of an actor with a black face who was used to criticize a specific European racist practice. Blackface is unacceptable and to make the point if graphically is offensive and false. I am sorry for the pain that caused. ”

Everything comes to the peacock of NBCUniversal
