Netflix receives Backlash for Adding Titanic to their Library Shortly after the Titan Tragedy

The streaming platform Netflix, has been met with backlash after announcing that the film “Titanic”, will be one of the movies added to the platform on July 1.

This is because of the announcement that came shortly after the news of the Titan submersible tragedy.

The movie “Titanic” was released in 1997 and is directed by the deep-sea diving veteran James Cameron, and revolves around the sinking of the ship Titanic, back in 1912. It also shows the love story with a tragical ending of two travelers abroad (played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet).

Since the movie’s release, the wreckage of Titanic has gained fame, which has led to plenty of tours of its remains. One of those tours resulted in the tragedy of the Titan submersible.

Netflix announced that Titanic is supposed to arrive on the streaming platform on July 1, which is less than two weeks after the Titan incident first was publicly announced, on June 18. Less than four days later, the implosion of the Titan which caused the death of five people, was confirmed.

Many people now claim that Netflix is trying to take advantage of this tragedy by adding Titanic to its platform just days after the catastrophe was announced.
