In yet another public relations headache for the company, Netflix is now looking into whether actual footage of a deadly 2013 event in Canada appeared in Bird Box after it was discovered in at least one other production.

Netflix's Bird Box is inciting new outrage among viewers-and this time it has nothing to do with that unsafe viral challenge. Mudd noted that the video clip in the episode was acquired from a stock footage vendor and the company wasn't "aware of its specific source". Morin said Netflix's use of actual footage of the tragedy showed a "lack of respect" to victims and survivors.

"We sincerely apologize and had no intention to dishonour the tragic events of 2013", Carrie Mudd, president of Peacock Alley Entertainment, said in a statement sent to The Washington Post via a Netflix representative.
