      I wouldn't judge the whole movie from a sensationalized trailer or poster before actually seeing it. I do believe movies can function as social commentary as or cautionary tales, there's probably many other commentary films where stills/sections can be taken out context.

      I wonder: if Twitter didn't exist, would Netflix have had the opportunity to quietly change the material after some direct feedback? Would the changed version have triggered a similar outrage?
