Earlier this year, one of the most disgusting displays of child exploitation we have seen in the mainstream was aired on Netflix.
The original movie “Cuties” tells the tale of young dangers showcasing erotic dance moves and some rather racy scenes.
After the movie aired, Texas Senator Ted Cruz pleaded with Attorney General William Barr to hold them accountable.
In a letter to Barr, Cruz wrote, “The video streaming service and content-producer Netflix is currently hosting a film entitled ‘Cuties’ that sexualizes young girls, including through dance scenes that simulate sexual activities and a scene exposing a minor’s bare breast.”
Netflix maintained it did nothing wrong, responding, “‘Cuties’ is a social commentary against the sexualization of young children.
“This charge is without merit and we stand by the film.”
The streaming and video service will now have an opportunity to justify the airing of the movie in court, as a Tyler County, TX grand jury has just handed down an indictment.
The indictment charged that Netflix “knowingly promote visual material which depicts the lewd exhibition of the genitals or pubic area of a clothed or partially clothed child who was younger than 18 years of age at the time the visual material was created, which appeals to the prurient interest in sex, and has no serious, literary, artistic, political, or scientific value.”
