Netflix trolls serial watchers of 'A Christmas Prince' and absolute hilarity ensues

If you have a Netflix subscription—or if someone you know has one—then you've probably already watch A Christmas Prince. You may have liked it quite a bit, and may be even watched it a second time.

But are you one of the 53 people who watched the film every day over the past 18 days? We hope not. But if you are, we hope you got Burnol to soothe that sick burn Netflix inflicted on you.

Netflix has defended their tweet, saying it doesn't identify individual users, as per a report by the BBC.

"The privacy of our members’ viewing is important to us. This information represents overall viewing trends, not the personal viewing information of specific, identified individuals,” said a representative.
