Netflix‘s first Arabic Original, Jinn, that premiered on June 13, has not had such a smooth start. Jinn fell foul of Jordanian government officials, where the supernatural series is set. Jordanian officials have condemned the teen drama for its “lewd scenes” with calls for censorship and removal of the teen drama series from Netflix’s service in the country.
