Courtney Stodden, who gained public attention for marrying then-51-year-old Doug Hutchison at the age of 16 in 2011, is giving her two cents about the controversy over Netflix’s “Cuties”.
The first fire incident occurred last month after the film released an “inappropriate” promotional poster showing pre-teen girls posing in sexual dance poses. The film was officially released on September 9 in the US and was met with even more widespread criticism, causing the hashtag #CancelNetflix trending on Twitter due to alleged hypersexualization of minors. After watching a few clips of the film, Stodden claimed that it all reminded of his past.
“It’s apparently a drama-comedy. They are basically distributing child pornography. Turkey has banned it, so it’s great, but it’s still up and it’s very annoying.” . I don’t usually talk about this stuff … Stodden said in a video posted on his Instagram account on Thursday, “I am a victim as a child, victimized as a child, a Sexual harassment as a child. The scenes I’ve seen, I’m completely sick. ”

The former reality star and lingerie model, who finalized her divorce from Hutchison earlier this year, demanded Netflix to remove “Katies”, which goes under its title of content, from its library titled “Mignoness”.
“So Netflix, it’s your responsibility. You need to remove it from your stage. I don’t really like jumping on the canceled culture bandwagons, but honestly, every celebrity needs to come out and speak for the sake of our children.” ” Not acceptable, ”Stodden continued.
The 26-year-old warned that there are “pedophiles” who can watch the film and see it as “commercial use”.
“They think it is acceptable to go ahead and hunt our children and therefore it is your responsibility to apologize and take this material down,” she demanded.

In a statement to Fox News on Thursday, a Netflix spokesperson defended the film’s content amid the backlash.
The spokesperson said, “” Katis’ is a social comment against sexual abuse of young children. “” It’s an award-winning film and a powerful story about pressured young girls growing up on social media and society in general – and we would encourage anyone who’s watching these important issues to watch the film Cares. “
The film focuses on a group of 11-year-old girls who form a twisting dance group, for a pilgrimage to a character’s very conservative Senegal family. Netflix first apologized after the poster for the French film in which the younger actors were presented in a sexual manner.

The director of ‘Cuts’ stands with hits, putting Netflix’s poster blind with hypersexual minors.
The film’s director Maumona Doukore revealed that she received threats to kill her life after the Netflix poster went viral last month.
“I discovered the poster at the same time as the American public,” she revealed. “My reaction. It was a strange experience. I hadn’t seen the poster until I started getting all these responses on social media, direct messages people attack me. I couldn’t understand. What was going on. Then I went and saw what the poster looked like. ”

Doucoure reported that Deadline did not represent the film’s content to the sexualized poster. She said the plot is based on her life and “is the story of many children who have to navigate between a liberal Western culture and a conservative culture at home.”
She concluded: “I really hope that those who haven’t seen it will see it, and I can’t wait to see their reaction. Hopefully, they’ll understand that we’re really in favor of this fight If we join the army, we can make a big change in this world that hypnotizes children. ”
