‘The View’: ‘Cuties’ sexualizes young girls, but a Netflix boycott isn’t required

netflix boycott : On Thursday, the panel of ABC News’ “The View” reached a rare point of agreement while discussing Netflix’s controversial “Cuties” film, saying they believe it sexualizes young girls but arguing that the streaming service should not be boycotted as a result.

Mamouna Doucouré’s film “Cuties” is about a group of 11-year-old girls who join a twerking dance group, much to the dismay of one character’s devout Senegalese family.

The video has been severely panned for sexualizing young girls, prompting demands for a Netflix boycott and the trending hashtag #CancelNetflix on social media.

“The first issue I have with this is the boycott’s cancel culture. ‘Boycott Netflix, cancel Netflix,’ said one user.

“I don’t know how we went from arguing with a film, or discussing about a film and having differing perspectives, to ‘cancel the entire streaming service,’” remarked co-host Sara Haines.

Haines continued, “I respect [Doucouré’s] aim and her attempt at achieving what she did, which is to illustrate how we sexualize young girls.”

“As a mother and a watcher, I believe she missed the goal and sexualized the girls, which I don’t believe was her intention.”

Meghan McCain acknowledged that cancel culture isn’t for her and revealed that she hadn’t seen the movie.

“I’m a big fan of the arts and I despise censorship, and I agree that we’re on a dangerous cultural path in this direction, but I’ve been listening to experts, and one expert is Nancy Pelosi’s daughter, Christine Pelosi, who used to work in the San Francisco child abuse sexual assault unit and tweeted, ‘This hypersexualizes girls to the delight of paedophiles that I once prosecuted.’ Netflix, please take this down.’”

McCain went on to say that several of the young cast members were attractive to “filthy old men” who reviewed the picture.

McCain continued, “I don’t believe we need to give the world a justification for vile paedophiles and perverts to sexualize young females.” “I just thought the trailer was filthy.”

Sunny Hostin began watching “Cuties,” but was unable to finish it.

“I didn’t appreciate the film, and while I don’t agree with the phrase ‘cancel culture,’ as you all know, I believe it is more about consequence culture, and there are consequences when you have a film like this.

You can simply refuse to watch it, which is exactly what I did. Hostin explained, “I just switched it off.” “I have a problem with sexualizing young girls, and this is a problem in our culture,” she says.

Hostin agreed with Haines that “Cuties” fell short of expectations, but added that the film is “art” even if you don’t agree with it.

“I don’t believe anyone needs to witness a young girl twerking to get the point through, but I also don’t believe you need to, sort of, cancel Netflix,” Hostin added. “I don’t believe it’s child pornography, either.”

McCain then pointed out that the same folks who demanded the removal of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” off the radio due to its sexual lyrics are now defending “Cuties.”

McCain stated, “The messaging across the board about… what’s OK in America is quite unclear.”

According to Whoopi Goldberg, “Cuties” is far from the only item that sexualizes children in America.

“Perhaps the dialogue should begin with us changing the way our dolls look, changing the kinds of costumes we buy for kids, changing what a bathing suit looks like,” Goldberg suggested.

Hostin then delivered a statement from Netflix, in which the company apologised for the film’s original poster, which depicted four young girls in dance postures and generated outrage on social media.

“Cuties is a social commentary about the sexualization of young children,” a Netflix spokeswoman told Fox News last week.

It’s an award-winning film that tells a strong storey about the pressures young girls encounter on social media and from society in general as they grow up, and we’d recommend it to everyone who cares about these important problems.”
