Facebook is planning to announce a new name for the company next week, according to The Verge. The name change is intended to reflect Facebook’s ambition to build out the metaverse, with a focus on AR and VR. That’s versus having its foundation be social media, for which the company is currently under fire from regulators. Facebook’s annual Connect conference takes place October 28, and details of the rebrand are expected; the company said it does not comment on “rumor or speculation.”
Meanwhile, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been added as a defendant in a consumer protection lawsuit. “Our continuing investigation revealed that he was personally involved in decisions related to Cambridge Analytica and Facebook’s failure to protect user data,” said AG for the District of Columbia Karl A. Racine. The lawsuit, filed in 2018, alleges Facebook misled consumers about privacy on the platform.
Netflix isn’t having such an easy time of it, either. Ahead of an employee walkout and rally yesterday over transphobic remarks in Dave Chappelle’s new Netflix special, “The Closer,” Netflix issued a statement. “We value our trans colleagues and allies, and understand the deep hurt that’s been caused,” said the streamer. “We respect the decision of any employee who chooses to walk out, and recognize we have much more work to do both within Netflix and in our content.” Acknowledged Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos to the Wall Street Journal of his initial response to critics, “I screwed up…I should have recognized the fact that a group of our employees was really hurting.”
The Netflix protesters gave the company a list of demands that did not include taking down “The Closer,” but asked instead that it “adopt measures in the areas of Content Investment, Employee Relations and Safety, and Harm Reduction, all of which are necessary to avoid future instances of platforming transphobia and hate speech, and to account for the harm we have caused and will continue to cause until the below measures are put in place.”
“The Last Cowboy” is moseying from Paramount Network to CMT. The unscripted series from Truly Original, offering an inside look at the sport of horse reining, will premiere in its new home on Friday, November 12 at 8p.
Black viewers are cutting the cord amid the surge of streaming options, according to a new study from Horizon Research. MVPD penetration among Black households has dropped from 88% in 2017 to 61% in 2021, said the study. And video providers, traditional and OTT alike, would do well to keep pace with the times. “Many companies are late to the game, only now focusing on the Black audience in the context of BLM and new diversity mandates,” said Horowitz CRO Adriana Waterston. “To not be viewed as simply pandering, companies who hope to serve the Black audience must make meaningful and sustained investments, not just in programming and marketing, but in community outreach and support, in order to earn this valuable audience’s trust.”
Warner Bros. Television responded to a lengthy Instagram post by Ruby Rose, who abruptly left their starring role on The CW’s “Batwoman” after one season. Rose alleged toxic behavior on the set as well as unsafe working conditions were the cause of her departure. Said the studio in a statement, “Despite the revisionist history that Ruby Rose is now sharing online aimed at the producers, the cast and crew, the network, and the Studio, the truth is that Warner Bros. Television had decided not to exercise its option to engage Ruby for season two of ‘Batwoman’ based on multiple complaints about workplace behavior that were extensively reviewed and handled privately out of respect for all concerned.”
