CAIRO — Egypt became the latest Arab country on Wednesday to demand that Netflix drop content that runs counter to its “societal values,” an escalation of a battle by regional authorities on Western-produced television shows and films that depict gay and lesbian characters onscreen.
The content, in the official telling, is anathema to their majority-Muslim societies. Egypt’s warning to Netflix, Disney+ and other streaming services, issued by its government media regulator, came a day after six Gulf Arab countries including Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates called on Netflix to take down “offensive content” on its local streaming sites.
They said in a statement that such programs “contradict Islamic and societal values and principles.” Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman and Qatar also joined in the Gulf countries’ request.
