As a writer, I have worked closely with several national and international brands and have handled their social media and website content for over 3 years. With my diverse experience in the field of writing, I am looking forward to creating some engaging content for my readers.

Highlights:

  • Netizens express their anger at Netflix for re-releasing the classic movie Titanic on their platform shortly after the Titan crash incident.
  • Social media users criticize the timing of the release, considering the recent Titan tragedy and perceive it as capitalizing on the submersible accident.

Last week’s catastrophe on the Titan claimed the lives of five individuals. The submersible dove at a depth of 13,000 feet to examine the Titanic passenger liner’s remains. Some users on social media are upset with Netflix for redistributing the classic movie Titanic on the service only a few days after the Titan disaster. 

What happened on Titan?

The US Coast Guard officials revealed five passengers on the Titan submarine perished in an implosion on Thursday (local time) last week. To examine the remains of the Titanic, the vessel dove at a depth of 13,000 feet.

Why Are Netizens Angry at Netflix? 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, starting July 1 in the US and Canada, Netflix will show the 1997 Oscar-winning picture once again. Many individuals have been upset by this choice. “Anyone find it f***ing alarming that there is already a Titanic documentary available on Netflix?” a user tweeted. Setup, bro. It hasn’t even been a week yet. Another person on Twitter wrote, “So Netflix was like, ‘Let’s capitalize on this sub thing real quick…gone head and put TITANIC back in the rotation’.” It said in a tweet, “Bad timing.” Someone said, “Horrible.”

Here’s the truth about the Titanic re-release

The report claims that before the Titan was initially reported stolen, it was included in Netflix’s list of July movies. Additionally, it was said that licensing agreements for films are made far before their airing. The Netflix original article was released on June 8 and was revised on June 21.

As of now, Prime Video has Titanic available for viewing. Around 1,500 passengers and crew perished when the Titanic sunk in the North Atlantic Ocean during its first voyage in April 1912 after colliding with an iceberg. When the debris was discovered in 1985, diving enthusiast James Cameron was inspired to create Titanic.

The tail cone and other submersible wreckage were discovered by a remotely controlled vehicle about 1,600 feet off the Titanic’s bow, some 900 miles east of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, after a five-day search effort in the area of the world’s most famous catastrophe.

Hamish Harding, a British entrepreneur and explorer; Shahzada Dawood, and his son Suleman Dawood, members of a notable business family from Pakistan; Paul-Henri Nargeolet, a French diver, and Stockton Rush, the CEO of OceanGate Expeditions and Titan’s pilot, were among the passengers.
