‘Child Porn’: Tulsi Gabbard Cancels Netflix Subscription Over Cuties

By Mary Margaret Olohan Published on September 13, 2020

Democratic Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard said Friday evening that she canceled her Netflix account over Cuties, calling the newly released film “child porn.”

@netflix child porn ‘Cuties’ will certainly whet the appetite of pedophiles & help fuel the child sex trafficking trade,” Gabbard tweeted. “1 in 4 victims of trafficking are children. It happened to my friend’s 13 year old daughter.”

“Netflix, you are now complicit,” she added with the hashtag “Cancel Netflix.” 

“Canceled netflix this morning when I saw this s***,” a Twitter user told Gabbard, to which Gabbard replied, “Me too.”

“Cuties” not only includes many close up shots of little girls’ crotches and buttocks, but also depicts them viewing pornography and discussing sexual acts and shows one girl photographing her genitalia, among other explicit scenes, a review by the Daily Caller News Foundation found.

Netflix defended the film in a statement to the DCNF late Thursday evening, saying, “Cuties is a social commentary against the sexualization of young children.”

“It’s an award winning film and a powerful story about the pressure young girls face on social media and from society more generally growing up — and we’d encourage anyone who cares about these important issues to watch the movie,” a Netflix spokeswoman said.

Netflix did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the DCNF regarding Gabbard’s comments.
