Elsewhere on Hulu, the streaming platform was forced to remove its documentary about the ‘Astroworld’ tragedy from its streaming platform hours after it launched after facing backlash from audiences.
The incident was the focus of the 50-minute news special, called Astroworld: Concert From Hell. The documentary arrived on Hulu on December 1, and was met with instant criticism from people on social media.
“Hulu making a documentary about Astroworld is in poor taste all around,” tweeted one user.
