Netflix is removing footage from Bird Box amid controversy.
The streaming service announced on Thursday (March 14) that they will remove real-life footage of the 2013 Lac-Mégantic train derailment, in which over 45 people were killed when a train carrying crude oil derailed in the Quebec town of Lac-Mégantic. Dozens of homes and businesses were also destroyed.
“We’re sorry for any pain caused to the Lac-Mégantic community,” the streaming service said in a statement.
In the film, footage from the actual catastrophe was featured in a sequence showcasing the world descending into apocalyptic chaos.
The process to replace the clip worldwide with an outtake from a TV series will take several weeks, the company also said.
