Seriously - it’s a TV show One of my favorite Netflix series. People are so sensitive these days. Period pieces are in a league of their own and that has to be considered. 1) she is a Georgian 🇬🇪 Netflix mentioned her as a Russian . 2) she is grandmaster, world champion and Netflix said she never faced the men , what a sexist joke to world champion…. Netflix own her apology for disrespecting her career and damage …

Wha- Who cares I am also a woman who loved this show. It was different times back then and this show did a wondetful job depicting that. Still not a documentary WTF? 🤮🤮 People get desperate when their EDD stopped coming in 😅 I mean really

Netflix Sued by Ex-Soviet Chess Champion Over “Sexist” Remark in ‘Queen’s Gambit’Nona Gaprindashvili was mentioned in the hit Netflix series — but she says a comment about her got the facts wrong. Pretty stupid Netflix. In a fiction, it would have been easy to change the name to make the point. I mean the line is in the show. We all heard it. It is not factually correct. They can vigorously defend it but I am not sure what they have to stand on here. Those words were said and they were not correct, p simple. ?

🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ Seriously, people. It was a representative period piece. Grow up The way Netflix pisses away money...$5 mil doesn't even make them blink...then they'll just raise our monthly fees anyway. Either way...yet another greedy money grab from society leeches. 🤪 🤯 🤔 Someone needs to take a huge chill pill. I'm a woman, I loved the series and found nothing about it sexist or belittling.
