If you’re completely convinced that the earth is round, the documentary, Behind the Curve, might flat out irritate you.
The film—which circles conspiracy theorists who attempt to convince people that the earth is flat—was just made available to Netflix subscribers in the UK.
The streaming platform, however, wishes to put it out there that just because it’s screening the show, it doesn’t mean that it buys into these notions.
Like most non-flat earthers, Netflix believes that the earth is globe-shaped and revolves around the sun. It has thus taken to Twitter to deliver its well-rounded stance on the shape of Earth once and for all.
The Netflix UK & Ireland Twitter account has released an “official statement” declaring just two words: “It’s round.”
“We cannot take questions at this time,” Netflix concludes in its Twitter caption.
As it seems, not even a documentary lasting an hour and 35 minutes is enough to persuade the streaming service into thinking that the earth is anything but spherical.
