Netflix has come up against critics following the announcement of their no doubt lucrative deal with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

After the announcement landed yesterday, Twitter went into a frenzy with some Netflix users even threatening to throw in the towel on their monthly subscriptions as a result.

One fan fumed: "Cancelled my Netflix today. When you cancel, they ask why. I checked 'Other', and wrote, 'The signing of Meghan and Harry'."

A second person agreed, adding: "That's an excellent reason not to have Netflix. I never thought Harry would sell out!"

While a third explained: "Time to cancel the Netflix contract with the news about Meghan and Harry."

One tweet read: "Trolls be crying and stating they will now cancel Netflix. Good, they don't need your stinking money Harry and Meghan will bring them many more new customers."

Another exclaimed: "Guess what nobody cares whether you cancel Netflix or not. Meghan and Harry will keep on shining... they don't need you they have us. They have the world."

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex revealed on Wednesday that they will make documentaries, films, scripted and kids’ programmes with the streaming giant, even though they have never produced a TV show.

While Meghan and Harry's fee for the agreement has been kept under wraps, it has been suggested that the pair could expect to swoop up a whopping £75million.

The deal also echoes Meghan's past comments that she will not be return to acting.
