Texas Grand Jury INDICTS Netflix for "Lewd Visual Material" of a Minor
Netflix continues to see fallout over the release of the Cuties, the recent movie filmmakers claimed spoke out against the "sexualization of children" and sought to accomplish this by ... grossly sexualizing children. While some in the entertainment industry and media seem to disagree, it would appear many Americans don't approve of sexualizing children, or think it's entertaining (see 'CUTIES' IS A CLEAR CASE OF SEXUALIZING CHILDREN AND ITS FILMMAKERS SHOULD BE ASHAMED and NETFLIX DOUBLES DOWN, RELEASES REPREHENSIBLE STATEMENT ON 'CUTIES'). As for whether it's even legal in the first place, at least one Texas Jury has decided that it's not. In Tyler County, they moved to return an indictment against the streaming service.
The complaint alleges Netflix "knowingly" promoted visual material which "depicts the lewd exhibition of the genitals or pubic area of a clothed or partially clothed child who was younger than 18 years of age at the time the visual material was created, which appeals to the prurient interest in sex, and has no serious, literary, artistic, political, or scientific value."

Netflix of course issued a statement claiming the charge is "without merit," and defend the film once again. Legally, I'm not sure what this means: if it's just a slap on the wrist for the company, if Netflix is now illegal in Tyler County, or if nothing else it creates legal precedence for future action over the movie.
Personally, I tend to fall under the "if you don't like it, don't watch it" category. But if I were to make an exception to that rule, Cuties and twerking children is definitely it. There needs to be a legal probe into what executives greenlit this movie in the first place so we can make sure they stay at least 500 feet from schools, playgrounds, and daycare centers.
