Vigilant Citizen – Sept 15, 2020
“Cuties” was praised and defended by countless pundits in mass media. Here’s exactly what they’re praising.
When the promotional poster of Cuties was released, it was met with varying degrees of shock and horror. Proudly promoted by Netflix, the image featured four 11-year-old girls in skimpy outfits posing in all kinds of sexual positions. The fact that the word “Cuties” was printed in large letters underneath the picture did not help.
Netflix also provided a brief summary of the movie … and it sounded like the description of a cable softcore p*rn movie.
“Amy, 11, becomes fascinated with a twerking dance crew. Hoping to join them, she starts to explore her femininity, defying her family’s traditions.”
Right away, calls for the removal of this still unreleased movie garnered major support. Netflix then apologized, changed the poster, and even submitted a new description.
Once the movie was released, several mass media sources immediately vehemently defended the movie stating that the poster did not properly represent it.
Others attempted to defend the movie by stating that it was created by a black female director as if that fact changed the actual contents of the movie. Finally, in an apparently desperate attempt to defend this movie, some particularly toxic articles found a way to make this movie a “liberal” vs “conservative” issue. However, it is not.
For instance, representative Tulsi Gabbard – a Democrat – published a scathing tweet denouncing the movie, even calling the movie “child p*rn”.
.@netflix child porn "Cuties" will certainly whet the appetite of pedophiles & help fuel the child sex trafficking trade. 1 in 4 victims of trafficking are children. It happened to my friend's 13 year old daughter. Netflix, you are now complicit. #CancelNetflix pic.twitter.com/GI8KFH7LFq
