From the time Netflix made the decision to stream the film Cuties, they’ve been in hot water. Now I saw the movie and I understand the concerns, but watching it, I didn’t find it HEAVILY offensive, but I’m also not into children so there’s that.
It’s now come out that the French film has led some government officials to do more than just talk bad about the movie. They’ve now decided to take them to court.
A Texas grand jury has made the motion to indict Netflix on charges over the film.
Some say that the charges against the streaming giant won’t stick and wouldn’t be touched by a prosecutor, but only time will tell.
According to Fox News, Netflix has been indicted on a criminal charge that alleges the streaming giant promotes “lewd visual material” of a child.
A Tyler County, Texas grand jury moved to return an indictment against Netflix on Sept. 23, Fox News confirmed on Tuesday via court documents.
Netflix released a statement saying that the charges are without merit and “we stand by the film.”
I don’t think this case will stand, but I encourage everyone to watch the movie for themselves and if you find it offensive, turn it off and let your voice be heard!
