In answer to the thread title's question: no, Netflix isn't the reason, it's human nature with the added pressure of social media creating echo chambers where fans of one sort or another feed off each other until they end up hating anyone not in their group. We see the same thing happening in politics - particularly in the US but also in Europe - where supporters of one politician / party sit in social media echo chambers building the hatred for "them".

Social media has an awful lot to answer for.
This pretty much is it in a nutshell.

Agreed, I put something similar in a recent chat with the other mods; “Sums up the socials for me, but sad that society is starting to mirror the self-aggrandising, narcissistic, lack of conscience that anonymity allows.”
