A new Netflix movie set to be released next month celebrates 11-year-olds twerking, prompting condemnation about the film sexualizing children.
“Amy, 11, becomes fascinated with a twerking dance crew. Hoping to join them, she starts to explore her femininity, defying her family’s traditions,” read Netflix’s original description for the movie, which is called Cuties.
The trailer for the film shows ‘diverse’ children in a rough neighborhood learning to dance provocatively in preparation for a tournament.
“They loved you. See how many likes we have?” says one of the characters as a video of the girls twerking on social media is displayed.
