They have one thing in common.

Published May 22, 2018

There's a new call to #boycottNetflix and no, it doesn't have anything to do with Mo'Nique and the gender pay gap disparity in Hollywood. Right wing Trump supporters have called for a boycott of the streaming service after news of Barack and Michelle Obama inking several different deals to create videos and movies went viral.

According to CNN Money, the former First Couple secured a multi-year production deal with netflix where they will work both in front of and behind the camera. A source close to the deal revealed the former president and first lady will serve as hosts and moderators for some of their projects. They are also set to serve as producers.

Once news of the Obama's new deals with Netflix went viral, Trump supporters immediately called for a boycott of the streaming service.

Despite the hate from conversatives, there was a slew of supporting coming in online.
