Netflix supports this movie
Netflix supports this movie, calling it “a social commentary aimed at the sexualization of young children.”
“Cuties” director Maïmouna Doucouré broke her silence in an interview with Zora, and her resistance is growing. Claiming that her award-winning adult drama has caused sexism against young actresses.
After Netflix first released posters for the movie, anger exploded against “Cuties”. Which featured its child stars in suggestive dances in explicit costumes. The poster led people to accuse the movie of making it star.
Netflix apologized for improperly marketing the movie. And the debut of “Cuties” on the streaming platform on September 9 caused a strong response on social media.
On September 10th, Netflix subscribers called for a rally due to “Cuties”. Causing the Twitter hashtags #DeleteNetflix and #CancelNetflix to become popular trends in the United States. The new round of strong opposition forced Netflix to issue a follow-up statement to defend the film.
A Netflix spokesperson said in a statement to Variety Show:
“Cuties’ is a social commentary aimed at the sexualization of young children”. “This is an award-winning film about young girls in social media and the wider society. With strong coverage of the pressure, we encourage everyone who cares about these important issues to go to the movies.”
Doucouré said that it was obvious from the strong dislike that people were not satisfied with her movie and did not stream it.
Netflix apologizes to the public and myself. I hope these people can watch the movie as soon as it is released. When they realized that we were in the same position in the fight against excessive sexual desire in young children, I was eager to see their reaction. “
“Cuties” plays the newcomer Fathia Youssouf as Amy.
She is an 11-year-old girl who became friends with a group of dancers at school and began to grow into women. Amy’s adult experience with new friends disturbed her mother because it directly confronted the family’s Senegalese Muslim tradition.
Doucouré attended a neighborhood party in Paris and witnessed a group of young girls dancing on the stage in a “very sexually seductive way” like the characters in her movie. And then forming an “ancient costume” idea.
