The release of the French movie ‘Mignonnes’ or ‘Cuties’ in English on Netflix has sparked outrage and backlash, with members of the Congress demanding action against the moviemakers and streaming giant.
Senator Ted Cruz also wrote to the Department of Justice demanding a child porn probe into the controversial film as outrage continues to increase over ‘Cuties’ accused of sexualizing young girls.
Cruz called on Attorney General Bill Barr to ‘investigate whether its executives, or the filmmakers violated any federal laws against the production and distribution of child pornography.’
In the letter, Cruz said: “The film routinely fetishizes and sexualizes these pre-adolescent girls as they perform dances simulating sexual conduct in revealing clothing including at least one scene with partial child nudity. These scenes in and of themselves are harmful.”
He also warned that the movie would be used by predators and he feared the production of the movie involved more ‘explicit and abusive scenes.’
Cruz wrote: “It is likely that the filming of this movie created even more explicit and abusive scenes, and that pedophiles across the world in the future will manipulate and imitate this film in abusive ways.”
Members of Congress urged the Department of Justice to investigate the streaming giant.
DeAnna Lorraine, a former Republic candidate for Congress from California, wrote on Twitter: “Child pornography is illegal in America.”
Beatrice Cardenas, wrote: “As the mother of an 8-year old girl, I STRONGLY support #CancelNetflix.”
Tulsi Gabbard even accused the streaming giant of being complicit in encouraging child trafficking and pedophilia.
“You don’t fight child exploitation by exploiting children. You don’t stop child pornography by creating, selling and distributing child pornography,” Lila Rose tweeted.
