FOLLOW @FACTBASEDAMERICA FOR UNBIASED NEWS! Netflix has been indicted by a Texas grand jury for the controversial film “Cuties,” according to Fox News. The criminal charge alleges that the streaming platform promotes “lewd visual material” of a child. The lawsuit focuses on the release of the French film “Cuties” that has been heavily criticized since its release last month. ~ A Tyler County, Texas grand jury moved to return an indictment against Netflix on Sept. 23, confirmed on Tuesday via court documents. County prosecutors said the charge was based on a Texas law that makes it illegal to “knowingly promote” material that depicts the genitals or the pubic area of a child, clothed or partially clothed, and “which appeals to the prurient interest in sex and has no serious literary, artistic, political or scientific value,” according to the New York Times. ~ To learn more about Netflix being indicted for its film “Cuties,” read the rest of the FACT-BASED article by clicking the link in our bio. @FACTBASEDAMERICA serves to depolarize American politics by taking the bias and partisanship out of the mainstream media.

“Netflix, Inc. indicted by grand jury in Tyler Co., Tx for promoting material in Cuties film which depicts lewd exhibition of pubic area of a clothed or partially clothed child who was younger than 18 yrs of age which appeals to the prurient interest in sex,” Schaefer wrote in his post.
In a statement provided to Yahoo Entertainment, a Netflix spokesperson responded to news of the indictment, writing: “Cuties is a social commentary against the sexualization of young children. This charge is without merit and we stand by the film.”
Netflix continues to support not only the film but its director Maïmouna Doucouré, who says that she shares the same fight as those who accuse her film of sexualizing young actresses on screen. Doucouré says that she based the story on her own life as a child growing up in France as a Senegalese immigrant.
