Netflix, America’s favorite streaming giant, is no longer in the good graces of Americans who oppose child pornography. Many angry customers have canceled their subscriptions en mass following the release of French film “Cuties.” Despite winning a film festival award, the movie about a dance troupe of twerking 11-year-olds did not sit well with Netflix’s American audience after all. Now, Netflix is feeling the brunt of the outrage from angry subscribers nationwide, and also catching bipartisan flak from the nation’s elected leaders.
After Netflix premiered the French film “Cuties” last week, #CancelNetflix began trending on Twitter and other social media platforms, and the pushback from infuriated Americans caused a massive decline in subscriptions. Reports are circulating that the company lost $9,000,000,000 in market value since the hashtag went viral on Twitter.
The movie is supposed to be a modern coming-of-age film that tells a story about prepubescent immigrant girls defying their parents’ religious conservative values and forming a twerking dance team. The girls are shown posing and dancing in sexual positions throughout the film, which is essentially a pedophile’s dream come true.
While it’s disturbing that the streaming giant thinks it is perfectly acceptable to release a movie that glorifies over-sexualizing little girls, it’s more insulting that they knew the American people would reject it and still went ahead with the release.
Even Democrats like Tulsi Gabbard denounced the film’s release. Gabbard wrote a strong message on Twitter condemning Netflix for being “complicit” in encouraging pedophilic behavior.
She said, “@netflix child porn “Cuties” will certainly whet the appetite of pedophiles & help fuel the child sex trafficking trade. 1 in 4 victims of trafficking are children. It happened to my friend’s 13-year-old daughter. Netflix, you are now complicit.”
Similarly outraged are Republican Senators Tom Cotton and Jim Jordan, who have announced they are taking legal action in response to the film’s release.
Cotton told the Daily Caller, “There’s no excuse for the sexualization of children, and Netflix’s decision to promote the film Cuties is disgusting at best and a serious crime at worst.”
“I urge the Department of Justice to take action against Netflix for their role in pushing explicit depictions of children into American homes,” he continued.
If you can be arrested and jailed for possessing child pornography, you should be arrested and jailed for promoting it.
Perhaps even more insulting than the film itself is the fact that when the movie’s trailer was released just a few weeks ago, it sparked an enormous backlash from Americans nationwide, and the hyper-sexual movie poster was similarly criticized. The trailer has nearly 2 million dislikes on YouTube and only 47,000 likes. Plus, over 600,000 people signed a petition to persuade Netflix to cancel the premiere of “Cuties.”
Yet, the streaming giant still released it.
But, just like everyone else on the Left, Netflix doesn’t care about what we want or even what will help business. They care more about shoving their far-Left agenda down our throats regardless of the consequence. They want to push the envelope as far as they possibly can, and it’s not going to stop with “Cuties.” There’s been an under-the-radar movement to normalize pedophilia by mainstream entertainment for quite some time, and this film is only the tip of the iceberg. Contrary to what they might have you believe, that’s not just some “Right-wing conspiracy theory.” It’s more vital now than ever to continue to fight to protect our youth and the conservative values we stand for.
