Netflix says it will not remove images from the Lac-Mégantic train explosion in Quebec that killed 47 people in 2013 from its popular movie Bird box.
Julie Morin, mayor of Lac-Mégantic, has requested that the streaming platform remove the footage from the film, saying it showed disrespect and also bothered many city residents suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, according to the publication. The Canadian Press.
The broadcasting platform says it will no longer use filming in future productions, according to Morin, who says he talked to a Netflix representative on the subject.
Travelers, another Netflix production, also shows footage of the 2013 train derailment, though the streaming service said it plans to recreate an episode of the series without the explosion of the Lac-Mégantic railroad.
Netflix recently revealed that more than "80 million homes" watched Bird box since the release of the movie just before Christmas.
