Netflix responds to criticism over 'creepy' A Christmas Prince tweet

DreamWorks

Yesterday, the streaming giant revealed that one user had taken on 53 viewings of the festive movie A Christmas Prince.

But now the sassy service is calling some subscribers out for a very weird habit: 53 users have watched their movie, A Christmas Prince, every night for 18 nights. Check out what Netflix has on deck, including their original, "A Christmas Prince", and so many more.

Think Hallmark-meets-millennials: the film basically has the makings of a classic Christmas-themed Hallmark movie that's based in a country no one has ever heard of.

Netflix jokingly responded: "I just want to make sure you're okay". They expressed concern and asked for specifics about how many Netflix employees have access to user data. Netflix Canada started on its campaign a few days back on December 7.

Though the AV Club speculates this could be a new social media tactic to promote its original content, people are not here for the change.

Watch James Corden become Taylor Swift's worst-ever backup dancer
I'm terribly sorry, and I hate to tell you this, but if you laughed even once at this, you and I can not be friends. Suri wasn't the only one at the Jingle Ball who was pretty excited about the musical artists-and with good reason.

But even though it's silly, "A Christmas Prince" has become something of a cult hit for Netflix, and has already created some superfans.

Beware Netflix-bingers, beware.

Netflix said the privacy of its members was important.

The tweet was received with mixed emotions from some who viewed the streaming site's spying to be a little too Big Brother-y, but most were more concerned with Netflix getting rid of their favorite show.

Netflix values your privacy - but it's also got a pretty sassy Twitter account that doesn't have a problem poking fun at its users. There are also some TV specials to watch (or re-watch if you've already seen), like Peewee's Playhouse Christmas Special, Good Luck Charlie's It's Christmas and Trailer Park Boys: Live at the North Pole.
