Federal authorities have found a slew of human trafficking rings across the United States in an obvious uptick to end the horrible practice as of late.
At the same time, movies like Netflix's Cuties are drawing negative attention for its graphic imagery of children.
IMDB has published these warnings under its Parents Guide, which include the following under "Severe Sex and Nudity":
- The movie consists of 11 year old girls dancing very suggestively
- A pair of pants on an 11 year old girl are forcefully pulled down in the midst of a scuffle; the camera glances at her panty exposed backside
The movie also shows children watching nudity on their phones.
The controversial movie has received confusing praise as many journalists have come to defend the disturbing artistic endeavour.
Writer Jack Murphy implies that while on-screen actions are deplorable, the characters in the film having poor reactions to the graphic scenes justifies the message.
Richard Brody of The New Yorker calls the movie an "Extraordinary Netflix Debut That Became the Target of a Right-Wing Campaign".
The New Yorker deleted their tweet promoting the story, but hasn't removed the article at the time of this publication.
The Telegraph published this disturbing headline:
A provocative powder-keg for an age terrified of child sexuality - Forget the moral panic – Netflix’s controversial French import is disturbing and risqué because that’s exactly what it aims to be
Reports are also circling that IMDB parental warnings were changed after they became public, changing the descriptions of the movie Cuties to contain less vulgar vocabulary.
