Ex-Presidential aide, Reno Omokri also supported boycott of the streaming service, his tweet reads;
“If Netflix releases the the gay Jesus film, I urge all #RenosNuggeteers around the world to delete the Netflix app and cancel their subscription. If you fail to do this, you cant claim to love Christ, His Father, or me, their servant.
The other day, a misguided woman used Scripture as an ashtray. Now, @Netflix announces a film about a gay Jesus. Would they do that to the Quran? Do NOT take advantage of Christian’s tolerance. We choose non-violence. Not that we can’t be violent!”
