That movie is truly sick. Saw some clips of it on twitter, and read the posts of all the controversial scenes, and they are not ok, no matter how well intentioned the movie might have been originally. If the intention was to highlight the modern cultural problem that causes young kids to grow up too fast, as the director claims, that message could have easily been driven home without showing straight up child pornography on screen like an 11 year old girl showing her breast on screen, among many other highly controversial scenes in the movie, the point could have been driven home in a far less controversial matter if that was the intention. Everybody involved with that production is a sicko, from the parents of the 600 girls who let their 11 year old daughters audition for the movie by twerking, to the parents of the chosen 4 girls who continued to let their daughters act in the movie as they saw what was being filmed, to the production crew, to the executives at Netflix who got the rights to the movie and marketed it.

The fact that Netflix still hasn’t removed it in spite of the trailer they released last month having the most dislikes and worst like/dislike ratio of any video on the Netflix YouTube channel ever, in spite of multiple petitions with over a million signatures between them, or in spite of their stock dropping 20 points the day the movie released, tells you everything you need to know about Netflix’s executives. I haven’t cancelled my sub yet, but if the movie is not removed soon I may cancel my sub temporarily, at least until new seasons of Netflix shows that I like are released, months from now.

Speaking strictly stocks all of the tech stocks dropped that week.  Amazon, Alphabet, Tesla, Apple Facebook, Netflix have been safe haven stocks since March where everyone has been sticking their money to ride out the rocky stock market.  Tesla alone went from $72.25 in March 18th topped out at $503 August 31st, Apple went from 56.09 March 23rd to $138.98 September 1st.  Netflix went from $298.84 March 16th and jumped as high as $575.37 September 1st.  A lot of people made a lot of money investing in these tech stocks over the last 5 months especially young millennial Robinhood investors.  The bottom dropped out, one because these stocks are overvalued compared to what they actually produce, secondly because investors were expecting another sitmulus which has fizzled, thirdly a lot of investors had huge gains and they sold the stock to cash out the gains, and many other reasons.  This controversy might have had an effect on the stock, but really all of the huge tech stocks fell at the same time.
