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

Quote :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
