Netflix subscribers are outraged over the release of the French film cuties. #cancelNetflix is the biggest trending hashtag on social media today. The movie is facing backlash for over sexualizing children performing as provocative dancers with movements that portray young girls in a burlesque style manor. The film uses real child actresses around the age of 11. Children should not be portrayed this way. Hawaii representative Tulsi Gabbard as well as Republican Senator Ted Cruz denounced the film for over sexualizing women below legal age.
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz on Friday asked the Justice Department to investigate whether the filmmakers “violated any federal laws against the production and distribution of child pornography,” despite the fact that the film does not showcase any nudity of underage children. “[I]t is likely that the filming of this movie created even more explicit and abusive scenes, and that pedophiles across the world in the future will manipulate and imitate this film in abusive ways,” he wrote.
