Trump backs call for cancellation of Netflix over new movie ‘Cuties’

Published

Donald Trump Jr has backed the call for the cancellation of Netflix over a new movie on the platform titled ‘Cuties’.

Cuties is about an eleven-year-old girl (Amy) who starts to rebel against her conservative family’s traditions after she became fascinated by a free-spirited dance crew.

The movie, which is directed by Maimouna Doucoure, first drew criticism because of the kind of images used in the trailer. This forced an apology from Netflix.

With the movie now streaming, the political spectrum has joined netizens in criticizing it and calling for the cancellation of Netflix.

Omar Navarro, another Republican, joined in: “The hypersexualization of girls (and boys) is disgusting.”

In reaction, a Netflix spokesman said this about the movie: “It’s an award winning film and a powerful story about the pressure young girls face on social media and from society more generally growing up, and we’d encourage anyone who cares about these important issues to watch the movie.”

Tulsi Gabbard, a former US presidential candidate, lent her voice against the movie which has young girls dancing in suggestive ways.

“@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. #CancelNetflix,” she tweeted.

Trump backed her tweet and also took a swipe at Democrats with a claim that they are defending the movie.
