Netflix has shocked fans after sending out a strong message with their most recent Billboard.

Over the past few years, we've seen the popular streaming platform gain the respect of its fans after devising a clever little marketing tactic using billboards to advertise their latest movies or to address iconic pop culture moments.

From the Will Smith–Chris Rock Oscars slap, to that awkward Megan Fox moment on Love Is Blind, Netflix really knows how to pick and address the tea.

Their most recent billboard does exactly that, in the midst of the ongoing rumors surrounding the star's marriage to Ben Affleck.

Take a look at the billboard below:

The streamer did not pull any punches with the statement "DON'T F WITH JLO" written on the billboard.

The images, which were first published by TMZ and later shared by the star herself, come shortly after a video at a fan event in Mexico went viral.

While promoting her latest movie, Atlas, the 54-year-old was bluntly asked by a reporter what the situation was with her and Affleck after multiple outlets reported that the pair were living in separate places and focussing on their own work.

The singer laughed before her expression turned serious.

Her co-star Simi Liu immediately scolded the question, stating: "Okay, we're not doing that. C'mon, don't come in here with that."

Lopez composed herself and responded: "You know better than that."

Liu then redirected the attention to Lopez's role on the movie, commending his co-star by saying: "If I could just end on one thing. Jen is a producer on this movie and the reason why I’m here and the reason why Sterling [K. Brown] was in this beautiful movie was because Jen cares.

"Jen cares about things like representation and diversity - and she’s a boss!" he added.


Many took to social media to applaud the way the situation was handled, but the ultimate support is having Netflix devise an entire billboard dedicated to you, right? It doesn't get any better than that.

And this isn't the first time Lopez has been honored in such a manner.

Just before the release of her 2022 documentary, Halftime, Netflix put up a board that read: "When I grow up I want to be Jennifer Lopez."

And a year later in 2023, another billboard cropped up with the phrase: "'JLO IS MOTHER," on it, promoting her movie at the time, The Mother.

Iconic.

It all comes shortly after multiple sources opened up about the personal situation between Lopez and her husband after the pair tied the knot in 2022.

On May 16, TMZ reported that Affleck had been staying at a home in Brentwood by himself, which was then later allegedly confirmed by sources who spoke to Us Weekly and Entertainment Tonight.

"Jen and Ben are having issues in their marriage," an insider told Us Weekly of Lopez, 54, and Affleck, 51. "They started having issues a few months ago as Jen had started ramping up work commitments and prepping for her tour.

“Jen is very focused on work,” the source added, claiming that her attention is on her tour that is set to commence next month. "They are on two completely different pages most of the time."

ET also echoed a similar premise, with a source alleging that "tensions have been high" between the couple.

So far, neither Affleck nor Lopez have given any insight into whether there was any truth to the rumors.
