A growing list of lawmakers is condemning Netflix over its recently released drama “Cuties,” which controversially sexualizes twerking pre-teen girls.
Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii slammed Netflix on Friday, describing “Cuties” as “child porn” and accusing the streaming giant of fueling pedophilia and human trafficking.
The former Democratic presidential candidate appears to be the first high-profile Democrat to come out against the controversial film.
“[Netflix] child porn ‘Cuties’ will certainly whet the appetite of pedophiles & help fuel the child sex trafficking trade,” Gabbard wrote on Twitter.
She added: “1 in 4 victims of trafficking are children. It happened to my friend’s 13 year old daughter.”
“Netflix, you are now complicit,” Gabbard concluded, adding the tag #CancelNetflix.
Gabbard wasn’t finished.
The Hawaii Democrat replied to a tweet connecting the film to human trafficking and arguing the issue is not getting enough attention.
