NETFLIX SHOW ‘CUTIES’: MUSLIMS AND CHRISTIANS UNITE IN ANGER
The Council on American-Islamic Relations released a statement condemning Netflix’s “Cuties” show as exploitative of girls and offensive to Muslims, and called for its removal from the television platform.
Title this One Of The Few Times Christians And Muslims Agree.
The film has been widely criticized as child porn; Netflix, in defense, has said it’s only trying to draw attention to the problem of sexualization of children in a critical manner. . . .
“We join other Americans in calling on Netflix to remove this disturbing film from its platform,” said CAIR’s executive director Nihad Awad in a written statement. “Although the filmmakers behind ‘Cuties’ have argued that the film is meant to criticize the hyper-sexualization of children, a film cannot criticize the abuse of children while abusing children.” . . .
CAIR also said “to make matters worse, ‘Cuties’ features depictions of Islam and Muslims that range from the stereotypical to the offensive, including a scene in which a barely-clothed Muslim preteen gyrates during a forced exorcism while an Arabic recitation plays in the background.” . . .
After all, Christians wouldn’t like it if the sexually exploited child was being sexually exploited to the good music of the gospel — to a rousing rendition of “Amazing Grace,” for example.
Netflix needs to pull the plug on “Cuties.” It’s about as widely condemned as it can get.
