#CancelNetflix Trending as ‘Cuties’ Film is Accused of Sexualizing Children

Netflix is under fire from its users as their newly released French film “Cuties” is perceived as overtly sexualizing young girls.  

The film centers around a young immigrant girl who becomes fascinated by a clique of 11-year-old neighborhood girls who twerk in a local dance troupe.  

“If you watch 11 year olds twerk, you’re a creep,” one user tweeted. “If you defend Netflix airing this child porn, you’re enabling abuse.” The post was tailed with the hashtag #CancelNetflix.   

An early poster for the movie provoked enormous backlash after it was criticized for sexualizing young girls. The French version “Mignonnes,” is clearly less provocative than its American counterpart, both can be seen side-by-side below.   

Following the outrage, Netflix apologized for the “inappropriate artwork,” changing both the poster and the movie’s description.  The film’s original summary disgustingly read: “Amy, 11, becomes fascinated with a twerking dance crew. Hoping to join them, she starts to explore her femininity, defying her family’s traditions.”

Netflix desexualized the content in a second description: “Eleven-year-old Amy starts to rebel against her conservative family’s traditions when she becomes fascinated with a free-spirited dance crew.”

The changes have done nothing to quell the public’s disgust. Since Cuties’ September 9 release, the hashtag #CancelNetflix is the No. 1 trending topic on social media. A petition on Change.org to ditch the streamer for “content that exploits children” has garnered over 600,000 signatures.

The film’s writer and director, Maïmouna Doucouré is baffled by the response. “I received numerous attacks on my character from people who had not seen the film, who thought I was actually making a film that was apologetic about hypertextualization of children,” she said. “I also received numerous death threats.”

Netflix has rated the controversial film for viewers that are eighteen and older.  If a movie about 11-year-olds cannot be viewed by children, the streaming giant should consider removing it. It seems that if they don’t their users won’t hesitate to cancel the service.

How do you suppose the Obamas are going to spin this? I guess he can always use that old standard, “You didn’t build that, Netflix did!”

All I had to see is the clip Tucker Carlson showed and that was enough for me. How in the world can anybody think that this is okay? It is absolutely disgusting and no amount of rationalizing can explain putting this travesty of a movie on the air. Netflix should be taken to task for this.

I think I seen a movie once about kids competing like a beauty pageant and thought what are they doing to these kids. I saw the trailer to this one and it looked a lot like the pageant, so this has been going on for years. In the trailer woman tells a child you’re a woman now and I froze in thought. What. In my day that meant she slept with someone. I have seen worse things these days. I don’t think one has to cancel netflix only enough people leaving them know it is un acceptable and they will cancel. I am glad to see folks still have morals these days.

I have not seen the actual rating for this trash but I was told that it was rated as Not Being for Children. Now I might not be anywhere as smart as obama and the members of his Socialist Regime but isn’t it odd that a film that should not be seen by children is made with children in the movie. I’m confused.

Perhaps I just don’t understand the logic behind this movie. It is about young girls who are most assuredly under the age of consent performing a dance that woudl be more at home in a strip joint with a rating that is at a level that does not allow Young Children to view. So just who is this film for? I suppose the more important question is “What kind of Parent allows their daughter to preform this kind of dance routine?”
