'Demand for consumer products to celebrate the fandom for Squid Game is high and those items are on their way to retail now,' the company said in its letter

The series, which stars Lee Jung-jae, Park Hae-soo, Wi Ha-joon, Jung Ho-yeon, O Yeong-su, Heo Sung-tae, Anupam Tripathi and Kim Joo-ryoung, is streaming on Netflix. 

The huge success comes at the right time for Netflix amid a row over Dave Chappelle's latest stand-up that some viewers claimed was transphobic. 

The streaming service said that the show has 'pierced the cultural zeitgeist' in garnering a parody skit on Saturday Night Live featuring Rami Malek and Pete Davidson 

The row was over a group of Netflix employees who said Chappelle's show should be dropped from the streaming service. 

The word has been applied to JK Rowling before, who sparked outcry with a blogpost where she said she feared too many young people were transitioning because it had become trendy and encouraged on social media, not because the were genuinely transgender.
