French film sparks campaign to boycott Netflix

Paris (QNN)- Netflix is facing a boycott campaign after streaming a French +18 film, staring 11-year-old girls and sexualizing them.

Millions around the world took part in a campaign to cancel Netflix subscriptions, associating the company of promoting pedophilia through the +18 film Cuties.

This isn’t the first time that people have tried to cancel Netflix. Earlier this year, people threatened to cancel Netflix over 365 Days, a movie that petitioners argued glorified sexual violence against women. Last April, the company released an Israeli anti-Palestinian series titled ‘Fauda’, presenting Palestinians as savages and suspected terrorists and inciting against them.

Cuties uses “uncomfortable images to provoke a serious conversation about the sexualization of girls — especially regarding girls of color, the policing of a girl’s sexuality, double standards, the effect of social media on kids, and how children learn these behaviors,” one critic wrote on Roger Ebert. Doucouré’s intent is to show “that our children should have the time to be children,” she told TIME magazine this month.

Under the Netflix umbrella, the film would be translated into over 40 languages and stream in 190 different territories that Netflix operates in, excluding France where it had domestic distribution.
