Former President Barack Obama is negotiating with streaming giant Netflix to produce a new show on the platform. In response, Fox News viewers were not happy.

Fox News on Obama

For the eight years that Barack Obama was in office, conservatives on the Fox News Channel marked him as enemy number. While the right-wing media uses he term "media bias" in how they describe the current relationship between the press and Donald Trump, Fox News didn't hide their disdain for the former president.

Along with most hosts on the network, right-wing viewers have been just as critical of the Obama years.

As reported by Fox News on March 9, Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama are close to signing a deal with Netflix to produce an exclusive new show that would focus on a variety of topics, ranging from inspirational stories to healthy eating. The New York Times also notes that the Obamas would not use the program to play politics, and wouldn't speak out his conservative critics or Donald Trump. Obama adviser Eric Schultz spoke to the New York Times on Friday and said that the former president and first lady "believe in the power of storytelling to inspire."

Netflix boycott

Once the news of Barack Obama and Michelle Obama working on a deal with Netflix, Fox News tweeted about the story and received massive backlash from their right-wing followers.

"Just what Netflix needs, more crappy shows," one tweet read.

"Good bye Netflix.

No business from me," an angry Fox News follower wrote. "I will cancel immediately," yet another tweet added. "Netflix is getting into the propaganda business?? Let me know when I should cancel my account," a follow-up tweet stated. "Time to dump Netflix. They raised the price, no new shows, and way too much BBC," a conservative Twitter user posted.

"Might have to cancel Netflix,I couldn’t stand the last 8 years of them," a social media user replied. "Boycott Netflix!!" a follow-up tweet added. "I'm not paying to watch him and I won't. I couldn't stand to watch him on TV for free....certainly would never pay for it," a tweet read. As expected, conservative viewers of Fox News were not pleased to read that Barack Obama and Michelle Obama could soon return to the spotlight in a new program on the streaming platform, which currently has nearly 120 million subscribers. While many Obama critics are calling for a boycott, Netflix has not yet offered a response or statement in return.
