The OTT platform has created a ruckus about Netflix’s original French film “Cuties”. Some of the scenes shown in the film are being fiercely opposed on social media. Because of this, Netflix has to admit its mistake and apologize. Through a poster released this week by the platform, people have targeted the platform and said on social media that it is inappropriate to show children in the film and this points towards child sexual abuse.
The film ‘Cuties‘ is the story of an 11-year-old girl who goes against her family and joins a dance group. The film will be available on Netflix from 9 September. People have objected to the posters used in online campaigns run by Netflix for its promotion.
Netflix apologizes by tweet
‘Cuties’ is a French comedy-drama film about a girl raised in a cultural Muslim family in Senegal. The girl is bound by her family’s customs but she wants to break the bondage and adopt the culture of this internet world and learn to dance.
We’re deeply sorry for the inappropriate artwork that we used for Mignonnes/Cuties. It was not OK, nor was it representative of this French film which won an award at Sundance. We’ve now updated the pictures and description.
