Yesterday, Netflix confirmed rumors that Barack and Michelle Obama had signed a deal with the company.

The former president and first lady have signed a multi-year agreement to produce films and series, including both scripted and unscripted shows, documentaries and docu-series, and features.

Many Republication subscribers to the streaming service tweeted that the news had prompted them to cancel their subscriptions, with the hashtags #BoycottNetflix and #CancelNetflix both making the rounds. Browse some of the reactions below and let us know if you’re looking forward to the Obamas’ new TV venture or planning to cancel your subscription.
