Netflix Boss Says Americans Don’t Understand ‘Cuties’ Child Porn Film

Ted Sarandos, the co-CEO of Netflix, has decried the controversy around its original movie Cuties, saying that film is ‘misunderstood’.

The French coming-of-age movie, directed by Maïmouna Doucouré, finds newcomer Fathia Youssouf playing Amy, a young immigrant girl from Senegal who joins a dance troupe in her Paris neighbourhood.

Intended to be a critique on the hyper-sexualisation of girls at a young age, the release of the movie ushered in the hashtag #CancelNetflix, as well as condemnation from high profile political figures in the US.

But speaking at entertainment trade show MIPCOM, Sarandos has strongly defended the film.

“It’s a film that is very misunderstood with some audiences, uniquely within the United States,” he said (via Deadline).
