Warner Bros. Discovery is facing a lot of backlash after releasing an infographic that broke down the demographics of their two streaming services, HBO Max and Discovery Plus.
The infographic was released as part of the company’s Q2 earnings call, in which it was announced that the two streaming services will merge into a single service in summer 2023.
There was immediately backlash from people on social media, who called the infographic “sexist.”

The company says that HBO Max has a “male skew” with scripted shows that are “appointment viewing” while Discovery+ has a “female skew” with unscripted shows that are “comfort viewing.”
During #WarnerBrosDiscovery's earnings call, HBO Max was identified as "male skew" while Discovery+ was considered "female skew."

ah yes because women famously don't watch scripted tv or are fans of things and queer people simply don't consume media at all #WarnerBrosDiscovery

My wife told me she wanted to watch Pretty Little Liars on HBO Max, I slapped the remote out of her hand & told her she had to watch Property Brothers like #WarnerBrosDiscovery says.

Please place “veiled sexist infographics” at the very top of the list of things I did not expect from the #WarnerBrosDiscovery investor meeting

Oh no! Didn't realize I was watching TV wrong! I should only watch mindless reality shows that "comfort" but don't intellectually engage me. I will now delete/stop watching all my shows, anime and movies… #WarnerBrosDiscovery
