That Stupid Netflix Icon

Who designed this damn thing?

This has been driving me nuts since Netflix decided to update their icon. I don't remember when it happened,
but since that day it's been a whole big thing to try to watch Netflix on my phone or cast Netflix from my phone. It's so bad that on more than one occasion I've opened my media folder, searched, and been unable to find Netflix. After going to my app drawer to add Netflix, I go back to the folder only to find that there are now two Netflix icons. Why? They made the stupid icon white, and making the icon white makes it damn near impossible to see. Just take a look at that screenshot over there. Netflix vanishes right in to the white background. 
Who does this crap? This is just as bad as those bonehead UX people who completely ignore the fact that red/green colorblind people exist.
