US Politicians Demand Prosecution of Netflix Over ‘Child Porn’ Film ‘Cuties’

French-Senegalese director Maimouna Doucoure insists her film ‘Cuties’ is a warning of the dangers of society sexualising young girls, but social media users have called it pornographic and launched a boycott campaign against streaming service Netflix.

US legislators have called for legal action against TV streaming service Netflix for screening controversial French movie Cuties.

Republican Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton and Indiana Representative Jim Banks entered the ongoing fray over the film, which they said sexualises pre-teen girls and even called “child pornography.”

“There’s no excuse for the sexualization of children, and Netflix’s decision to promote the film ‘Cuties’ is disgusting at best and a serious crime at worst,” Cotton said in a statement to the Daily Caller. “I urge the Department of Justice to take action against Netflix for their role in pushing explicit depictions of children into American homes.”
