Netflix is facing a mass boycott after the trailer for the new show surfaced online.

The show called Dear White People, named after the movies it's based on, has been heavily anticipated by viewers but after watching the trailer on YouTube, fans are not happy.

Almost 300,000 people have disliked the trailer within 24hours and it's started a VERY heated conversation between users.

The 30-second trailer shows a series of caucasian stereotypes whist the show's lead character, Samantha, hectors them.

Her voiceover lists a series of Halloween costumes she deems acceptable which include, "pirate, slutty nurse, any of our first 43 presidents," and deems herself as an unacceptable costume.

The comments section on YouTube has gone crazy, with users currently stating that the trailer shows "blatant racism".

Others have even accused Netflix of taking the trailer off the website and reuploading it to get rid of over 100,000 other negative comments.

Dear White People premieres on April 24 and it'll be interesting to see how that goes down.
