Netflix Creepily Trolls 53 Fans Watching 'Christmas Prince', Twitter Claps Back

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.
