We are #PeopleNotPunchlines

August 7, 2018

Comedian Tom Segura is right, his Netflix special is “Disgraceful.” It shows that ending discrimination against people with intellectual disabilities is no laughing matter.

Special Olympics International, a global organization that promotes inclusion for people with intellectual disabilities through sports, has asked Tom Segura to remove his short clip but to no avail. They also asked Netflix to do the right thing but to no avail. As a proud partner of Special Olympics International, join SCSC and Special Olympic’s call in asking Netflix to remove Tom Segura’s offensive & hurtful portrayal of our community. We are #PeopleNotPunchlines — help us put an end to the discrimination by pledging to make #NetflixFixThis here.
