Netflix has said that the film is social commentary decrying the sexualization of young children, rather than endorsing it. Now, the streaming giant has finally issued a statement to denounce any wrongdoing in supporting the film on its popular platform. In it, she discussed the situation, saying she didn't think the attire shown in the film's Netflix cover was inappropriate for the ages of the children, and pointed out how people on all sides of the spectrum agreed.

The film tells the story of 11-year-old Muslim girl Amy who disobeys her parents and joins a dance group. She admits that the film explores the dangers of little girls in social media, acting like a grown-up woman, to be more noticeable and successful.

Netflix users and critics have been protesting the "oversexualisation" of children in the film. It stated that Netflix is no longer a family-friendly streaming device with shows and movies Like Cuties and Big Mouth displaying inappropriate behavior.

Shocking clips from the Sundance film festival award winning movie hit the social network on Thursday.

Brody boasts, "I doubt that the scandal-mongers (who include some well-known figures of the far right) have actually seen "Cuties", but some elements of the film that weren't presented in the advertising would surely prove irritating to them: it's the story of a girl's outrage at, and defiance of, a patriarchal order." .

"The movie comments on the hyper-sexualization of preadolescent girls".

Before when Netflix released the poster of the movie, it was so disgusting that people were totally against it and apparently Netflix had to remove that display and then tweeted apologizing about the same.

Cuties director Maïmouna Doucouré claimed she discovered the sexualized poster and promotional material for the film along with the rest of the public. "It was very important not to judge these girls, but most of all to understand them, to listen to them, to give them a voice, to take into account the complexity of what they're living through in society, and all of that in parallel with their childhood which is always there, their imaginary, their innocence".

"And the children just imitate what they see, trying to achieve the same result without understanding the meaning".

"A primary tide of criticism, also in August, directed Netflix to draw" improper" art used to market the movie, which premiered in theaters which month from France.
