#CancelNetflix trends as Netflix receives backlash over U.S. promotion of French film ‘Cuties’

0

‘Cuties’ originally titled “Mignonnes,” follows 11-year-old Amy, a Senegalese immigrant who begins to rebel against her family’s traditions when she joins a girls dance team.

The film was released Sept 9 on the streaming service. Since then, the hashtag #CancelNetflix has been trending on Twitter.

The film has been facing backlash since its release as a petition has surfaced to remove it from Netflix altogether. The petition has close to 350,000 signatures.

Netflix defended the film on Thursday, saying it was a social commentary against the sexualization of young children and does not glorify or promote child pornography.
