#CancelNetflix Trends Over ‘Cuties’ Controversy



- 'Cuties' debuted yesterday on Netflix and it's about “Amy, 11 years old, tries to escape family dysfunction by joining a free-spirited dance clique named ‘Cuties,’ as they build their self confidence through dance.”
- Today the hashtag #CancelNetflix was No. 1 on Twitter, and a petition calling for subscribers to end their Netflix subscriptions because of the film is gathering nearly 600,000 signatures.
- Viewers accuse the film of promoting pedophilia and sexualizing children, but the (female) director claims that the film is exactly a critique on the pressure that society puts on girls who barely understand the concept of sex to present themselves as ‘sexy,’ and that she's on the same side of this battle.
