A large jury in Tyler County, Texas blames the company. According to the allegations, Netflix deliberately promoted the contents of the film Cuties, such as "visual material depicting the obscene genitals or pubic area of ​​a child or partially dressed child under the age of 18 at the time of the creation of the visual "material that promotes sexual interest, and has no serious, literary, artistic, political or scientific value," according to the indictment.

The complaint belongs to the felony charge. Netflix has already received a call, although no call date has been set. The CEOs of the company, Reed Hastings and Ted Sarandos, were also mentioned in the indictment.

"The film is a social commentary against the sexualization of young children. "This category has no value and we are next to the film," the company told Reuters. The French film Cuties is about an 11-year-old Muslim girl who, according to Netflix, "begins to revolt against conservative traditions. family when she is fascinated by a free-spirited dance group.

Even before the release of Cuties on September 9, Netflix received a lot of reactions because of the movie's advertising poster, which allegedly sexually abused young girls. The company apologized for the "inappropriate" images and said it was not representative of the film.

Cuties won an award at Film Festival Sundance, which premiered in January. The director of the film, Maïmouna Doucouré, stated in Deadline last month that she had been attacked in the character by "people who had not seen the film, who believed she was actually making a film that was apologetic for the children's sexuality." He also claims to have received death threats.

Turkey, meanwhile, has ordered Netflix to block access to Cuties in the country, according to Engadget.
