Eminem expresses outrage over Netflix cancelling The Punisher: 'You're blowing it'
Netflix has cancelled all Marvel shows ending their six-year partnership. The Punisher was among the most recent shows to be laid off after two seasons.
The Oscar-winning hip hop artiste took to social media to protest the February 18 cancellation of the Jon Bernthal-led vigilante series.
"Dear Netflix, Regarding your cancellation of The Punisher, you are blowing it!! Sincerely, Marshall," Eminem wrote in all caps on Twitter.
REGARDING YOUR CANCELLATION OF THE PUNISHER, YOU ARE BLOWING IT!!
— Marshall Mathers (@Eminem) February 21, 2019
Retweeting Eminem's tweet, actress Amber Rose Revah, who plays agent Dinah Madani in the show, said, "I guess this means Eminem watches our show. I imagine this is that same feeling as when you have your first child."
Netflix had already cancelled Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Daredevil after the release of their most recent seasons. The still-upcoming third season of Jessica Jones will mark Marvel's last release on the streaming giant.
The decision comes as Disney prepares to launch its own streaming service, Disney+ later this year.
