Netflix pulls Cuties poster
August 21, 2020
Netflix has removed a promotional poster which showed young girls posing in inappropriate outfits in a new movie called Cuties.
The poster for the French drama sparked widespread disapproval and a petition for Netflix to drop it, which attracted some 25,000 signatures.
The award-winning drama follows an 11-year-old who joins a dance group. Its maker says it is meant to somewhat ironically tackle the issue of sexualisation of young girls.
Netflix said it was “deeply sorry for the inappropriate artwork”. The streaming giant also said the original poster was not an accurate representation of the film.
