Netflix’ latest Ibiza-themed movie may be the reason the white isle will sue this streaming service.
According to Hollywood Reporter, Ibiza may sue Netflix because the Ibiza movie includes footage from Barcelona and Croatia. While Barcelona neighbors Ibiza across the sea in Spain, neither it nor Croatia are Ibiza.
The Iberian Tourism Board is one of the movie’s biggest critics, citing a lack of respect for Ibiza’s culture, people and music. Johanna Carlson, an event planner in Ibiza said: “I think what most people are responding to is not only the physical misrepresentation of our beautiful island, but also the incredibly insulting portrayal of the culture and people on the island. It basically only shows one throbbing club, a fake Ibiza sunset, practically empty streets and two locals — a taxi driver who takes them to his house in the country for a song and a drink (not even hierbas, the traditional apertif) and a scantily clad go-go dancer.”
Ibiza hasn’t officially sued Netflix over its Ibiza movie yet, but we are waiting to see how this one will end. Anyone saw the movie?
