GOP Senator Josh Hawley Calls on Netflix to Remove ‘Cuties’ – ‘A Film That Appears to Sexually Exploit Children and Endanger Child Welfare’

Republican Senator Josh Hawley (MO) on Friday called for Netflix to remove a new film titled "Cuties."

"Netflix is airing a film called Cuties depicting children being coached to engage in simulated sexual acts, for cameras both onscreen and off," Hawley wrote. "Your decision to do so raises major questions of child safety and exploitation, including the possibility of copycat behavior and exploitation of child actors."

.@Netflix should explain to the public why it is distributing a film, "Cuties," that appears to sexually exploit children and endanger child welfare

The full text of the inquiry which Reed Hastings has 7 days to respond to is linked in the article.

I was physically nauseous when I saw just a few seconds of the trailer for this depraved film and immediately cancelled my Netflix account. Netflix crossed a line. Their stock is down and there's a change.org petition with a million names on it demanding this movie be removed. These children were exploited by the film maker and Netflix for profit and they must be held accountable. The entire system that should be protecting children top to bottom failed them. Depravity such as this must never be normalized, yet that is what some in the media are attempting to do.

I would expect this topic is something every single person in TP can unite behind and denounce. Both sides of the aisle must work together to end the exploitation of innocent children.

Now excuse me while I go bleachbit my eyes vomit

Don't watch it, It's a movie, I can give you a list of 100 other movies not to watch.
First Amendment!
You want government out , except when something bothers you. It can't be that bad if it's on Netflix.

It was given a mature rating 18+ and involves children. vomit The reason Congress is now involved is that laws have very likely been broken and people need to go to jail.

You're right. You can simply not watch a movie if you don't like it. This is a much different issue from just ignoring it because it clearly involves exploitation of children. vomit

You should denounce it. Or if you feel like you have enough information to form an educated opinion, go look at the trailer. I won't link to it here. The few seconds of the trailer I saw was absolutely one of the most disturbing videos I've ever seen.

I just watched the full 1 minute and 33 second trailer and don't see what all the hoopla is about. Girls twerking? Seen it on broadcast television on AGT more than once. I personally think it looks kind of stupid when anyone does it; but hey, to each their own as far as I'm concerned.

From your cite:
Quote :
"Eleven-year-old Amy lives with her mom, Mariam, and younger brother, awaiting her father to rejoin the family from Senegal. Amy is fascinated by disobedient neighbor Angelica's free-spirited dance clique, a group that stands in sharp contrast to stoic Mariam's deeply held traditional values. Undeterred by the girls' initial brutal dismissal and eager to escape her family's simmering dysfunction, Amy, through an ignited awareness of her burgeoning femininity, propels the group to enthusiastically embrace an increasingly sensual dance routine, sparking the girls' hope to twerk their way to stardom at a local dance contest."
... combined with the trailer, we can see where this movie is going.

"Sensual" dancing involving minor girls that age is disturbing and disgusting.vomit

Do you understand what twerking is Yens? Did the trailer have the unfortunate part I saw involving crotch grabbing and humping the floor? vomit

I'm surprised you have no problem with underage girls being cast in scenes like the ones I saw in one of the trailers. There's much more as well. Look at IMDB for all the details. There is also nudity involved from what I read. That's illegal and people that made this and sponsor it should go to jail.

The fact it's rated MA 18+ and involves 11 year olds tells us everything we need to know about the depravity of the film Jethrine. This is the kind of moral decline that destroys societies. I honestly think this is the first step in some trying to normalize this sort of thing. To what end? I have no idea.

we might as well go after Youtube as well. Ive seen both and this video is far worse than the Netflix movie. With no rating or age restriction. Its been on National TV as well and Tweeted by Katy Perry. Not sure where the Nextflix show got the MA 18+ rating maybe because it has violence and suggestive situations towards minors. But as far as dancing and Twerking the link Below has more skin and twerking than anything the Netflix movie offers.

https://youtu.be/82WwqXyyWXg


Keep in Mind this is just once example there are many more there are dozens of national dance competitions and a whole industry behind these very young dancers. I don't think all those people want to be shutdown.

The movie appears to be heavily, if not majority cast with minorities, which may also be a reason many are giving it a pass, since apparently such casting is a new "woke" standard for films, as we recently saw with the new Oscar inclusion requirements.

https://www.oscars.org/news/academy-establishes-representation-and-inclusion-standards-oscarsr-eligi... [oscars.org]

I understand many minor girls around that age are obsessed with learning and inventing dance moves to share on Tik Tok... the app's connection to the CCP/China and what they can/will do with it is also disturbing... but then again, so is the (adult) sex-fest they are exposed to on prime time network TV reality shows.

The 3 seconds I endured of the Netflix trailer as I was scrolling Twitter is more than enough of that depravity for me. Can't/won't click your link, but I will say I believe you.

This must be stopped. I'm becoming more and more convinced this is the normalization of pedophilia by some of the progressive left. I do not understand the reason though. Everyone, universally, should be condemning the exploitation of children. Yet for some reason, the media refuses to do so which is how we end up with sick twisted movies like this.

Interesting. I did not know about the minorities angle, but that might help explain why some people including Netflix are defending it vomit

What's truly horrifying as someone pointed out in Twitter is that there was a cast and crew *DIRECTING* these 11 year olds to perform these motions. Coaching them. I cannot even bring myself to watch the whole trailer because it makes me so nauseous . What kind of sick minds could not only script a movie like this but then direct scenes after scene with these children? vomit

vomit vomit vomit vomit vomit

Why the outrage now.? My link to that 10 year old twerking at a dance competition is 10 years old. It's been on national TV and Twitter and it's still available. It's kinda like going after child beauty pageants. Move on people wake me up in a month no one will care about this.

The Netflix film according to I believe it was IMDB involves actual nudity though. That should be a game changer for you and how you feel about this.

I didn't see nudity at all. If anything violence towards minor yes would get a strong rating.
