|Backlash against the French film “Cuties” continues to escalate, with objectors now demanding Netflix be canceled in response to the movie’s perceived sexualization of children.
“Unbelievable that they released ‘Cuties’. So child porn is ok now Netflix? Raise your hand if you agree this is disgusting,” wrote one Twitter user, using the hashtag #CancelNetflix.
The Twitter campaign against the streaming giant follows its release in August of a heavily criticized trailer and poster for the flick. The online outrage continues despite Netflix releasing a statement saying “we’re deeply sorry for the inappropriate artwork that we used” to promote the film.
“Netflix is comfortable with this. Plenty of people will defend it. This is where our culture is at,” tweeted one critic Wednesday alongside a clip from the film.
I know it's been talked about to death on the 'net, but you can't say it's not warranted.
BTW, yes, I've seen the clips and they deserve every bit of backlash they're getting over this. I won't cancel my Netflix account over it, but I understand the mindset of those who do. Totally disgusting. Any "anti-pedophilia social commentary" they claim to be messaging is negated by the oft-talked about sexalized acts and dances involving 11-year-olds and zoom-ins on their crotch and ass. Even lawyers are saying this is outright cp and illegal.
The IMDb content advisory page even outright said it legally constitutes pedophilia at one point:
