As Twitchy told you last night, anti-Trump comedian Michelle Wolff’s Netflix show has been canceled less than three months after its debut. The more notorious skits featured on the short-lived show included a sketch where ICE was compared to ISIS terrorists as well as ridiculous defenses of, and celebrations for, abortion:

With all that in mind, the Daily Beast is reporting that some staffers for Wolf’s canceled show are accusing Netflix of taking the low road:
“None of us can believe how classlessly Netflix has handled this.” https://t.co/s0CAippheA

From the Daily Beast:
“None of us can believe how classlessly Netflix has handled this,” a source connected to the show told The Daily Beast after the news broke, noting that the entire writing staff and even the showrunners found out they had been fired on Twitter.
Wait, really? It was a hilariously ironic accusation, according to many:
lol oh suddenly being classy matters? okay. pardon me while I die laughing forever. https://t.co/QNZt0g5gti

Hey, at least they finally made some people laugh!
Yes, because after all, she was all about being classy.

Indeed sir. A woman of such elegance grace and class should never be treated so rudely. Philistines.

It was a classless show.

"Don't knock [abortion] until you've tried it. And when you do try it, really knock it. You know, you got to get that baby out of there." Pure class, Michelle. https://t.co/DETgSxGFkf

Classless was that they ever gave her a show at all.

I think the technical term for the cancellation is "not funny."

Well, there’s that too.
