Why Netflix? Why?
The curse of 2020 seems to be going strong with Netflix cancelling Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj, after six successful seasons.

This exchange with the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau:
And, while chatting about climate change, Hasan had the balls to say this to Trudeau:
When, in an episode about fast fashion, he spoke about the ridiculous number of clothes that retailers come out with every week, while throwing shade at the platform that hosted his show:
And this subtle burn:
When, in an episode about billionaires, Hasan made this pretty solid statement:
When he explained the intricacies of the Harry Potter universe to Bernie Sanders:
When he had this to say about cruises:
When Hasan got roasted by an Indian Uncle:

And when, in the same episode, he had this to say about the Indian politician Shashi Tharoor:
When, in a follow-up episode to the elections, the same uncle was back with his burns:

And when this guy wrathfully rebuked Hasan for his political beliefs and then…ASKED HIM FOR A PICTURE!
And finally, when Hasan addressed anti-blackness within the South Asian community, in the most powerful way:
Farewell, Patriot Act!
