Published Feb 22, 2017Toronto's ever-exploitative #6Dad Norm Kelly shot to fame outside the realm of city council after embroiling himself in Drake and Meek Mill's summer '15 beef, and now the Ward 40 representative is shirking his political responsibilities once again — this time, to pick a Twitter fight with Netflix.
He made an offhand tweet about abandoning the streaming service because "I know I'll spend more time searching for something than watching," and the TV and film provider clapped back with a custom suggestion bar for @Norm.
Among the recommended viewing options were some pointed jabs in the form of The Mighty Ducks, House of Cards, Internet Famous and the latest incarnation of the long-running Toronto-based teen drama Degrassi (as well Santa Clarita Diet and Riverdale, which we're guessing are just shameless plugs for Netflix's latest original content).
It's come to the point where I don't bother going on Netflix because I know I'll spend more time searching for something than watching.— Norm Kelly (@norm) February 22, 2017
When that was brought to Kelly's attention by another Twitter user, he berated Netflix for taking a whole 14 hours to respond, which he claims is "the same amount of time people waste when trying to choose something to watch."
Now, he's responded directly to the streaming service's suggestions with a passive aggressive shruggie emoji of his own.
.@Netflix_CA Maybe if those recommendations didn't suck it would be useful. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯— Norm Kelly (@norm) February 22, 2017
Naturally, that was met with Netflix seizing the opportunity to plug some more of their original content.
Not that you really need Netflix when you can watch a grown-ass elected official stir shit up on Twitter all day, but for those of you in need of streaming suggestions of your own, head over here to check out some of the new titles that were added this month.
