We told you a few days ago about the tsunami of controversy that rained down Netflix because of the affaire concerning Cuties. It is a French film in which girls are shown who have to participate in a twerking contest.
The problem was born with the poster chosen by the giant of Streaming for the film that had been accused of sexualizing the bodies of very young girls. Despite Netflix’s apologies, the petition launched riding the hashtag #CancelNetflix, consistently among the first places in world trends, has been signed by over 660 thousand people (who the details).

The work also won an award during the last edition of the Sundance Film Festival as well as over gotten rave reviews all over the world.
