Social media clapped back at Netflix Sunday after the online movie streaming company called out 53 people who can't stop watching a sappy Christmas comedy.

On Sunday evening, Netflix tweeted: "To the 53 people who've watched A Christmas Prince every day for the past 18 days: Who hurt you?"

If you haven't heard of A Christmas Prince, the romantic comedy is about a reporter who tries to get the inside scoop on a playboy prince while pretending to be a tutor.

While it's common knowledge that while you're watching Netflix, the online streaming company is also watching you, the creepy tweet and didn't sit well with the Twittersphere.

@Johnson_DavidW pointed out that Netflix collects data on paying users, and the tweet "demonstrates that they'll use that data to ridicule specific customers publicly."

Lifetime, a go-to for sappy Christmas movies, tweeted that they were happy to welcome the Christmas Prince viewers with open arms.
