Netflix withdrew an episode of the comedy show "Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj" from its internet streaming service in Saudi Arabia after kingdom officials complained, the company said Wednesday. The episode of the news-comedy program in question criticized the country over the killing of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi last year at the kingdom's consulate in Turkey. In the episode, first aired in the U.S. in October, Minhaj said, "now would be a good time to re-assess our relationship with Saudi Arabia, and I mean that as a Muslim and as an American". He criticized the kingdom for its involvement in Yemen and described it as being autocratic.The Netflix spokesperson added that Saudi Arabia had not asked the company to remove the clips from YouTube, and it had not done so.
