Netflix has issued an apology after they were slammed for sexualizing little girls on the promotional poster for their forthcoming film, “Cuties.”
Author and blogger Sister Outrider rang the alarm on the shenanigans when she took to the streets of Twitter writing:
In a statement released on their Twitter account, the streamer stated:
We’re deeply sorry for the inappropriate artwork that we used for Mignonnes/Cuties. It was not OK, nor was it representative of this French film which won an award at Sundance. We’ve now updated the pictures and description.
See the original tweet below:
Yeah, about that description… it read:
Amy, 11, becomes fascinated with a twerking dance crew. Hoping to join them, she starts to explore her femininity, defying her family’s traditions.
The new description reads:
Eleven-year-old Amy starts to rebel against her conservative family’s traditions when she becomes fascinated with a free-spirited dance crew.

I need to know how many people sat in a virtual Zoom meeting and came up with this concept and who approved this tomfoolery?!
This nonsense has totally killed any interest I had in the project.
What are your thoughts on this?
