Netflix is saying bye to Fred the "nonbinary" bison.

The platform "quietly dumped" children's show Ridley Jones after the program introduced a "nonbinary" buffalo character named Fred who uses they/them pronouns, according to show creator Chris Nee, an advocate for more LGBT representation in children's media, the Post Millennial reported.

"Doesn't surprise me that Netflix has quietly dumped the first preschool show that has a nonbinary character coming out," Nee said. "I realize in this day and age dumped means many things. Just zero promotion of the episode."

Ridley Jones is just the latest example of failed woke programming. Disney last month axed 7,000 jobs after facing backlash for creating woke content and opposing Republican Florida governor Ron DeSantis's Parental Rights in Education Act.
