Netflix’s Bird Box featured real life footage of a Canadian tragedy that saw the deaths of many people. While Netflix initially refused to remove the scene from its film, as per a recent Entertainment Weekly report, they have finally agreed to replace the sequence, given how offensive and insensitive its inclusion in the film was.
Netflix’s Bird Box is a post-apocalyptic film about the onset of a sudden condition that causes people to commit suicide. When a character begins to see things, they get an irresistible urge to hurt and kill themselves. The ones who survive, do so by sequestering themselves indoors and refusing to look at anything outside. The story of Bird Box features a pregnant woman (Sandra Bullock) and a group of survivors who take up residence with one another and try to outlast the world around them.
