Ohio attorney general wants Netflix to remove controversial film ‘Cuties’

“In this era where we are fighting a seemingly never-ending battle against human trafficking, this film is counterproductive — it whets the appetites of those who wish to harm our children in the most unimaginable ways,” Attorney General Dave Yost said.

COLUMBUS — Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost joined Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry and Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on Sept. 14 in requesting that Netflix remove the film “Cuties.”

The award-winning French film has been criticized for sexualizing young girls.

“In this era where we are fighting a seemingly never-ending battle against human trafficking, this film is counterproductive — it whets the appetites of those who wish to harm our children in the most unimaginable ways,” Yost said in a news release. “I vehemently opposed the continued streaming of the movie and request that it is voluntarily removed.”
