When watching the TV show Ozark (Season 1 Épisode 1) tonight I was actually chocked by a scene happening from the 50th to the 51th minutes of the episode!
The character simply amalgamated Muslims and Terrorists... not even mentionning that this disrespectful and insulting comment comes out of the blue, since it has nothing to do with the topic of the show/scene...
Let me quote the script as it clearly speaks from itself :
« Mexicans, Mafia, Muslims. We all want to believe that these people are more than they are. And they're not. If they weren't... dealing drugs, extorting businesses, flying planes into buldings, they'd be cleaning toilets.
They're not criminal geniuses. They're pathological liars on the path of least of resistence. ... »
It is our responsability to ensure that racist, islamophobic or any disrespectful comments about any type of community are noticed, reported and not accepted as if it was a thruth or a normal thing to say... We must not exploit the fear of Muslims within the world by popularizing Islamophobia!

I was very excited about the series and I almost had my decision to watch the whole seasons of it but the moment at 50 It screwed everything it is shameful a big racist virus, I can't go on with the show I'm quitting, and if it happens again with any other show I will cancel my Netflix registration too.

I was shocked to hear this. There is another comment later on, still in season 1 about Obama being a Muslim and the person saying the line won't vote for a Muslim.

Netflix needs to appreciate its services are being used by Muslims throughout the world. Don't disrespect us!

I literally paused and checked on Google and here I am! Unbelievable and i can't continue watching the tv show and it's sad because it seems really good

May 01, 2022 12:20 am EDT

I stopped watching it the moment I reached that scene. Very bad. I hope they stopped creating hate in tv shows.

Exactly. I just started watching the show and in the first episode I heard this. It was so disturbing and infuriating. Why hasn't anybody noticed this?

I was very excited about the story since i watched Breaking Bad and i could see the potential of the story. However, I was shocked to hear about the comments in Epesiode 1 about Muslims, Mexican and Mafias. I am not strict muslim at all, but i find it insulting to all muslims frankly as it generalise all in one group of criminals. It is typical white american script who obviously needs some education and live in his/her own bubble, typical ! I stopped watching this series as it makes me sick!

Such a deliberate hate comment generalizing, stereotyping billions of people. This is a mindset of a writer filled with hate.shame on netflix to actually let it go on air.

Dec 17, 2020 5:55 pm EST

I turned the show off when I saw that scene and I will not be watching the rest of the series. This is disgusting and if it continues in future episodes, like some of the previous comments suggest, I'm glad I won't have to endure the pain.

Same thing, I got shocked "muslim" and even Mexicans even I'm not Mexican but they spreading hate and teaching people that all Muslims are the bad ones. I won't continue watching it definitely

Apr 11, 2020 3:18 pm EDT

As a Muslim, I agree, this is disrespectful and I won't continue watching the show.

I was shocked too @ cancelled my Netflix subscription! Shame on Netflix.

I ask & urge everyone (especially Moslims & Mexicans) to do the same!

Netflix should be feel it to understand it!

Mar 29, 2020 9:43 am EDT

Yeah i totally agree.I also noticed how they indirectly poked fun of muslims by using the birds or starlings as metaphors to tell that muslims are invaders.

Aug 11, 2019 4:30 pm EDT

They again followed it up with a comment after some episodes, BUDDY saying "I would never vote for a Muslim (referring to Obama).

Apr 28, 2019 1:57 am EDT

I've found that the more devout a Muslim is to the Koran, the more likely he is to be a terrorist.
Don't like it?
Ask your bros to stop killing people. Maybe get out of the 17th century.

In fact I think there’s always been something going on between muslim terrorists and USA governments.
Let me remind you of Alqa’edah and ISIS .
Alqaedah was the right hand of USA government during the war against Soviet.
After defeating the Soviet USA Government started the war against Alqaedah to get red of them and thats when small fanatic groups started showing up including ISIS .
They can’t get to USA because it’s way too far so they decided to kill muslims in islamic countries because some of Islamic countries are allies with USA that’s how they wanted to get revenge.
13 people of them did fly a plane into 2 buildings in usa once but thousands of them still killing muslims in islamic countries including SAUDI ARABIA .
Why don’t you grow up and start thinking.
The KKK is the worst terrorist group on the planet does that make all christians terrorists ?
YOU CANNOT delete 2 billion people existence but this way you can make them your enemy and that’s why grown up people believe that usa and most of western countries are driving the world to a brutal disaster
To defeat terrorists we need to stop covering the ones that might be related to us In skin color or religion

U are very smart. Really I am tired of ignorant people. I just want to throw books about statistics in crime nd history books. But some they start thinking and really find the truth completely different. The ignorant they are actually by their islamophobia growing the hate into the heart of those terrorists and make new ones. The first ones who pay the price are the Muslims themselves they are mostly killed because they are against and not following them and the ones who are safe become victims of racism and rejection. But I stopped being hurt by those naive ignorant instead I feel pity cos they need to read and do research. J

Shame on Netflix

Oct 06, 2018 3:46 pm EDT

So I'm not the only one who found it it uber disrespectful. This was an insul to all Muslims and I can't believe that it even happens in a tv serie...

Have you whiteaphobia? You never seem to care about all the other crap that is told, except when it tells the truth about your faith that is renowned for the destruction of other lives. Sure have your own faith but when it harms another, then i guess people have a right to retaliate. Point is stop believing in such nonsense as religion, it is the most destructive obsession on the planet the one that kills the most people, whether Muslim, Christian and what have you. I get annoyed how others wish to stop what they want to stop but when it comes to stopping certain things they then think that is unfair. For example White men stole Australia but i was never born for a start and secondly it was a queen that stole the lands, A WOMAN... Stil l have to suffer all the racism and just have to accept it, well i don't no matter what any of you hypocrits say. we should remove all the war movies and all the feminist crap and all the other garbage as well. In fact ets remove BEE Movie since it promoteds kids following a corrupt leader and doing as they say or else. Hell lets just get rid of all the earth. When the truth is denied, then the problems are never going to end.

the problem is that it's not true that all Muslims fly planes into building wake up.

Stalin killed over 20 mils and he was a secularist, Hitler was an atheist but identify as a Christian to garner support from the public and committed the holocaust due to his hate for religion, and the biggest crimes against humanity are happening in the secular atheist state of china where they mutilate women, forced people into concentration camps collectively these atheist tyrants have killed more than 100 million people. it's not fair to blame just religion as if it's the source of all evil. atheist have alot to answer for aswell.

It's disgusting and calculated. That's the zionist jews' agenda, to brainwash the sheeple. Remember people, the minorities that you're talking about are 2 billion people AND GROWING IN NUMBER. You'll never see or hear anyone bashing jews, if you do, they will be scrutinized, persecuted and exiled from planet earth.
