The director of Cuties has said she received death threats after a promotional poster for the film was criticised for sexualising children. Netflix apologised and removed the image after receiving ificant backlash on social media last month.
Cuties originally premiered at the Sundance film festival in January and received positive reviews from critics. It was a strange experience. I hadn't seen the poster until after I started getting all these reactions on social media, direct messages from people, attacks on me. I didn't understand what was going on. That was when I went and saw what the poster looked like.
Cuties follows an year-old who s a dance group. Netflix showed girls posing in skimpy outfits in its promotional poster for the award-winning French drama, which sparked online disapproval and a petition calling for Netflix to drop the film. However, many defended the movie and said Netflix had not accurately represented it in the poster.
The film is intended to be a commentary on the sexualisation of pre-adolescent girls - rather than an endorsement of it. Actress Tessa Thompson tweeted : "Disappointed to see how it was positioned in terms of marketing.
I understand the response of everybody. But it doesn't speak to the film I saw.
She added the film is set to be used as an educational tool in her home country. In its apology, Netflix said the promotional image was "not representative" of the film itself and said it was "deeply sorry for the inappropriate artwork". She confirmed she received a direct phone call from Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos, but did not reveal details of the discussion.
Cuties, which was originally titled Mignonnes, is scheduled for release on the streaming service later this month. If you have a story suggestion entertainment.
