More than 282,000 people have signed a petition on Change.org asking the streaming service Netflix to get rid of ‘Cuties’ as they claim it sexualizes children and is promoting Islamophobia.
The film has already premiered at this year’s Sundance festival . it’ll premier on Netflix next September 9.
The main character may be a Senegalese Muslim girl who lives during a poor neighborhood in France. Her name is Amy within the film. The film is originally a French-language film titled Mignonnes. Maïmouna Doucouré, who is additionally Senegalese, has written and directed it.
According to the petitioners, “The movie ‘Cuties’ shows children dressed provocatively, dancing sexually and is rated just for adult viewers,” reads their post on Change.org.
“It was created for the entertainment of adults who are pedophiles. Please sign the petition to guard our youngsters from exploitation in movies.”
