#CancelNetflix Trends on Twitter after Controversial Film Cuties Airs

At the time, Netflix issued an apology statement that said: We're deeply sorry for the inappropriate artwork that we used for "Mignonnes"/'Cuties.

Neither the Obamas or the Sussexes have offered comment regarding "Cuties" - a fact criticised by netizens, who have called on the high-profile celebrity couples to voice an opinion.

The film reportedly does feature young girls in the crew performing indelicate dance moves.

Pakistani actor Hamza Ali Abbasi on Sunday said he has canceled his Netflix subscription after the streaming giant "went ahead and released Cuties". The petition has now amassed more than 600,000 signatures.

The hashtag #CancelNetflix became a top trending topic on social media after the French film Cuties released on Netflix.

Kelly Clarkson Calls Divorce With Brandon Blackstock the 'Worst Thing Ever'
Kids involved: Kelly Clarkson says she wont talk about her divorce for the sake of her children. "I mean, it's no secret". Just last week, Kelly addressed her divorce and explained why she doesn't want to go into detail about it.

While many gave Netflix the benefit of the doubt, many were shocked by the film seemingly being worse than originally expected. "The most important [thing] is to watch the film and understand we have the same fight", Maimouna shared during a virtual panel discussing the movie. "Cuties is a social commentary against the sexualization of young children", the service wrote.

"On Friday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) sent to letter to US Attorney General William Barr, requesting that the Justice Department investigate Netflix in response to the film's distribution". The claims of "child nudity" are possibly a reference to a fabricated scene that made its way to the user-edited IMDB Parent's Guide for the film. However, the only brief scene of nudity involves a woman who is of age.

Centered around 11-year-old Amy, a Senegalese Muslim who explores life away from her traditional upbringing by performing with a girls' dance crew, the Maïmouna Doucouré-directed film has received rave reviews from film critics but was trashed on social media when its USA promotional poster was released this past August.

"This is most of all an uncompromising portrait of an 11-year-old girl plunged in a world that imposes a series of dictates on her".

Hawley then issued a September 18 deadline for Hastings to answer several questions, including whether or not he consulted with law enforcement to deal with the possibility of children who see the film imitating "hardcore pornography".
