Netflix Doubles DOWN, Releases Reprehensible Statement on 'Cuties'
The movie Taken is a story of a father fighting to save his daughter from sex trafficking. At no point in the film were the sex traffickers portrayed glamorously. The movie Cuties is a story of eleven-year-old girls enticed by the glamorization of sex exploitation who then freely exploit themselves sexually in front of adult actors, adult film crews, adult audiences, set to modern pop music which all but encourages the behavior with its upbeat tone. Only a complete moron would think the film was somehow condemning child exploitation. Yet after Thursday's justified internet backlash against the pedophile's new favorite go-to, Netflix insists their film is a work of art:
"Cuties is a social commentary against the sexualization of young children," a Netflix spokeswoman told the DCNF late Thursday. "It's an award winning film and a powerful story about the pressure young girls face on social media and from society more generally growing up – and we'd encourage anyone who cares about these important issues to watch the movie."
Cuties is as much a social commentary against the sexualization of young children as Batman is a social commentary against vigilante justice. Cuties is as much a social commentary against the sexualization of young children as The Fast and The Furious is a social commentary against aggressive driving. Cuties is as much a social commentary against the sexualization of young children as Ocean's Eleven is a social commentary against conning a casino.
Which is to say, are you effing kidding me?
Conversely, "Breaking Bad" is a social commentary against the drug trade and how power and evil corrupt. And what can happen if you're a wife who emasculates her husband who's already feeling bad about himself.
Audiences can generally spot the difference. Sure, sure, I'll grant that the same people who won't let their children watch Star Wars because it is somehow against their religion often believe a subject covered in fiction is a straight endorsement of it. But I'm going to say that faction is small, and most of us understand children twerking on camera, with encouraging music, is definitely more an endorsement of the behavior rather than a social commentary against it. You know, just based on how obviously gross this film treats its child actors who, as far as I'm convinced, are victims of child exploitation. What with them being children who're clearly exploited.
What we've learned here is Netflix really does think we're morons, and either can't spot the difference between child exploitation and social commentary against child exploitation, or they don't care about exploiting children and are happy to do so on their platform. As for me and my opinion, it seems far more the latter scenario than the former.
