Petition demands Netflix remove French film accused of sexualizing young girls

More than 20,000 people have signed an online petition asking Netflix to remove the French film “Cuties,” saying it “sexualizes an ELEVEN year old,” after Netflix released a trailer for the film this week.

A poster for the film showing four young girls in dance poses sparked social media backlash.

“Parents [and] carers need vigilance in protecting children from sexualisation,” journalist Sonia Poulton wrote on Twitter. “Every day brings a new Hell. Today’s low is ‘Cuties’ on Netflix. A twerking mess that has 11-year-old girls grinding like pros. Another consequence of strippers becoming pop stars [and] influencing our young.”
