#CancelNetflix is trending on Twitter as subscribers vocalize their disgust at the release of a film that covers the pedophile-friendly “coming of age” story of an 11-year-old girl who joins an erotic dance troupe.
The film ‘Cuties’, is highly sexualized, with multiple scenes of scantily-clad, 11 year old girls dancing erotically, exposing themselves, and roleplaying in both heterosexual and homosexual acts.
An additional scene from the film includes a five-year-old girl appearing to be take part in webcam porn.
A petition to cancel the movie has reached over 130,000 signatories.
Images that would be considered as blatant pedophilia to the vast majority of the public, are being distributed and promoted by Netflix despite an immediate outcry from its members and the public at large.
The New Yorker, however, had a different take on the movie.
Film reviewer Richard Brody praised the movie as an “Extraordinary Netflix Debut” and the “Target of a Right-Wing Campaign.”
Brody wrote defending the film:
“I doubt that the scandal-mongers (who include some well-known figures of the far right) have actually seen “Cuties,” but some elements of the film that weren’t presented in the advertising would surely prove irritating to them: it’s the story of a girl’s outrage at, and defiance of, a patriarchal order.”
This shocking defense of the film by The New Yorker comes as popular movie review site, IMDb classifies the movie as having “Severe Sex & Nudity.”
Originally, the Internet Movie Database classified the movie in the following terms:
“Parental Warning: During one of the many highly sexualized & erotic dance scenes that purposefully exploit & objectify numerous scantily clad under age girls, one of the female child dancers lifts up her cropped top to fully display her bare breast. This is lawfully defined as pedophilia and can be extremely distressing to many viewers.”
A number of left-wing magazines including Rolling Stone have also come out in favor of the movie.
