We have the right to decide whether we want to watch it or not, censorship is stone age!

"We" as in you are in Brazil or as in any Netflix watcher? I'm just curious, I wouldn't watch this tbh..

@Dana S - that’s great! You have that right to decide it’s not interesting for you to spend your time on. I probably wouldn’t watch it either. I abhor the idea that it could be censored though. The fact that people are willing to try and kill those who made it is insane to me. Violence can’t be the answer - even in the most dire circumstances of survival it should be measured with patience and reason. This is not a war worthy issue though. Brazil conservatives need to check themselves
