Cuties director ‘received death threats’ over Netflix film poster…

01) Cuties director ‘received death threats’ over Netflix film poster

“The director of Cuties has said she received death threats after a promotional poster for the film was criticised for sexualising children.

Netflix apologised and removed the image after receiving significant backlash on social media last month.

Filmmaker Maïmouna Doucouré has now told Deadline she “received numerous death threats” over the poster.

She said Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos phoned her directly to apologise after the poster sparked controversy.

Cuties originally premiered at the Sundance film festival in January and received positive reviews from critics.

Cuties follows an 11-year-old who joins a dance group. Doucouré says it is meant to tackle the issue of sexualisation of young girls.

Netflix showed girls posing in skimpy outfits in its promotional poster for the award-winning French drama, which sparked online disapproval and a petition calling for Netflix to drop the film.

However, many defended the movie and said Netflix had not accurately represented it in the poster.”

We fight, because they will have every other thing under the sun censored, and stay emboldened to threaten the lives of others, if nobody with at least half a lick of common sense ever stands up to them.

This whole fiasco is incredibly stupid…

…There are many people out there, who should be deeply ashamed and embarrassed of themselves.

    Watched the trailer for this: and saw many repeat comments, including: “Please leave the children as children”, and “No, Netflix. Pedophilia is crime, don’t normalize it”, etc.

    Do these cretins ever stop to think and ask themselves whether girls of a certain age actually desire to mimic their female pop star idols, actually desire to be exhibitionistic, actually desire to be sexually provocative … because it is fun?

    Take the case of LS Studio in the Ukraine, operating successfully between 1999 and 2003, before it was raided by a joint FBI and Ukrainian police operation. Around 500 girls between the ages of 8 and 16 were photographed in various poses whilst they were naked. The parents of the children were paid between 10 and 40 US$. No parent filed a complaint at any time, and a number of the children went on to pose nude after LS Studio was taken down.

      Yeah…I’ve heard of these kinds of cases…

      …In fact, I think I even saved a few short videos, of young teen girls talking about their experience with such a business [possibly the same one], and defending it.

      Not sure they actually did nude photos…so, it was probably a different one.
