Netflix Has Been Flooded With Calls About 'New Channel' On Their Service

"You and me baby ain't nothin' but mammals. So let's do it like they do on the... Gorilla Channel?" 

That's how that song goes, right?

A new book has been released by Michael Wolff which is a tell-all about life inside The White House with Donald Trump but a fake excerpt from the book has gone viral and sadly Netflix have been on the shite end of the joke. 

A popular Twitter account @pixelatedboat shared the fake extract which was supposedly from the new book titled: Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.

Trump initially tried to stop the book from coming out but instead, publishers moved the schedule forward and started selling it earlier than expected. 

While there are some great insights into life with Trump as President of the USA, this is not one of them, although it had us for a while...

The parody describes Trump’s frustration of having to deal with not having “the gorilla channel” on the television in his bedroom which led the President to believe that the unit was broken.

It goes on to add how Trump made people create a make-shift channel where his Commander in Chief edited a load of various gorilla-themed documentaries together.

Some people got the joke, but others did not and have been asking Netflix about this new channel that they have been hiding from the rest of the public...

The streaming service took to Twitter to confirm that they did not have the fake channel and to stop calling their customer service hotline asking for it. 

It's absolutely bananas.
