Netflix has some serious explaining to do! The streaming giant released a show about preteen dancers called Cuties, and it is even more explicit than we thought. Now the hashtag #CancelNetflix is trending on Twitter as people blast the company for sexualizing children.
The film, which was released on Wednesday, is described as a French coming-of-age comedy-drama where the protagonist is an 11-year-old Senagalese Muslim girl from a traditional yet dysfunctional family who joins a dance group known as Mignonnes, also the French name of the film.
Following the film’s release, around 600,000 people also signed a petitionpledging to cancel their Netflix subscription because of Cuties and other content they deem appropriate such as the animated sitcom Big Mouth.
“As I have been researching content that exploits children and creates a disturbing vibe, I have found many shows and movies on Netflix to have similar inappropriate behaviors as Cuties, the movie this petition was originally based off,” the petition reads.
“As Netflix has chosen to ignore the petition and the wishes of its customers, I feel we need to ban together and cancel our subscriptions,” it continues. “From cuties to Big Mouth to other movies mocking religions and exploiting children Netflix is no longer the family-friendly streaming service I one believed it to be!”
Anger over the film was also the result of a promotional image that showed girls posing in skimpy outfits, a poster for which Netflix has since apologized.
“We’re deeply sorry for the inappropriate artwork that we used for Mignonnes/Cuties,” the company responded at the time. “It was not OK, nor was it representative of this French film which won an award at Sundance. We’ve now updated the pictures and description.”
Last month, over 340,000 signed a petition demanding that Netflix cancel the film’s release, denouncing its content as dangerous.
“This movie/show is disgusting as it sexualizes an ELEVEN-year-old for the viewing pleasure of pedophiles and also negatively influences our children!” the Change.org petition reads. “There is no need for this kind of content in that age group, especially when sex trafficking and pedophilia are so rampant! There is no excuse, this is dangerous content!”
