Markels and Obamas Remain Silent on “Cuties”

Silence is violence, so I’m told.

Viewers have hit out at Netflix employees Meghan Markle, Harry and the Obamas as the two couples stay ‘silent’ on controversial French film Cuties.

Thousands of people have already launched a call to boycott the streaming giant on Thursday over ‘Mignonnes’ – known as ‘Cuties’ in English – angry that its young stars were portrayed in a sexualized way.

The film is directed by French-Senegalese director Maimouna Doucoure, and started streaming September 9. More than 200,000 tweets with the hashtag ‘#CancelNetflix’ became the top trending topic one day later.


Neither couple has spoken about the controversial movie as of Sunday. And that has sparked criticism online.

Twitter user @AngelaLMorabito said: ‘The Obamas and Prince Harry & Meghan have contracts with Netflix. If they really want to use their influence for good, they’ll tell Netflix to drop “Cuties.”’

@DTCahill added: ‘Silence from @Netflix employees Michelle, Barack, Megan [sic] and Harry on Cuties.’

    I like the term “employees” to describe the Obama’s and princess and prince.
    Just everyday working stiffs.

    Typical liberals.

    They never speak against sexual deviance unless forced too.

    Thats why the left loves Blake so much. He’s the latest sexual deviant liberals lionize as a hero.

    Monday morning “denounce it” outrage.

    Again he is demanding things from others that he won’t do himself. k has a long history of that.

    Troy Bader remains silent on “Cuties”.

    Awful. Just awful.

    I denounce liberal normalization sexual deviance and all liberal advocates of trying to normalize sexual deviance openly.

    I have always been clear on that.

    Will you say the same?

    In all fairness, exploring young kids for sexual purposes in movies and TV shows.
    Dance Moms was a paedophiles dream. Not too many people complained about that show.

    The Markels. I see what you did there. Cleverly shaded the Mountbatten-Windsors, you deplorable.

    Is just walking up to a woman & grabbing her by the pussy considered normal or deviant sexual behavior? Asking for a friend.

    That aside, guess I’ll be the first in this thread to say child pornography is down-right evil & absolutely wrong, and the sexualization of young children is pretty close to child pornography. Even as a horny young teenager I instinctively knew this – can still recall the icky feeling I felt in my stomach the first time I saw a pageant-style competition for grade-schoolers. Was kinda pumped about seeing a beauty contest at first (had no idea what the age group was), but that mood quickly changed when they walked out onto the stage. Most parents probably enter their kids into those contests with the best of intentions,  but it still doesn’t sit quite right with me.

    Kinda disappoints me that for most people this issue is only a concern ’cause they can score some cheap points against political opponents – but I reckon “cheap points at any cost” is the new normal now-a-days, eh?

    enter their kids into those contests with the best of intentions

    Nope.  Most of the pageant-involvement is encouraged by low-level grifters who play on the parents’ thoughts that their little Poopsie is THE most intelligent and beautiful little girl on Earth, if not in the entire universe.  There’s more than a few dollars changing hands here, and guess what?  Poopsie ain’t all that.   But somebody has the money.

    The argument that pageant participation is sorta-kinda finishing school doesn’t wash; ‘finishing’ is for 16-18 y.o. girls, not children.

    IOW, parents are suckers.  If that’s “good intentions,” well……..
