Despite the backlash, Cuties has also been defended by some who have argued that it highlights the dangers of the sexualisation of young girls. Very Ironic on her part because the reason why this movie is so controversial is the fact it has 11-year-old girls twerking to follow their dreams.
Twitter users are now arguing that Netflix went far enough with promoting the film and allowing it to premiere to audiences, widely-accessible by children who will learn a thing or two from the movie.
To Brody and other 'Cuties' defenders - and there are plenty of them, as the film has a 90 percent critical score on Rotten Tomatoes - the film is just another gateway drug to the cultural narcotic of racism, sexism, xenophobia and all the rest, and another cudgel against "right-wingers". "This is where our culture is at", Olohan tweeted.
"I understand this film contains a broader storyline", Sen. They identified multiple scenes in which the cast was asked to perform "highly sexualized dance routines" and recite dialogue that contained "foul, vulgar language". In a now altered synopsis, Netflix initially described it by saying: 'Amy, 11, becomes fascinated with a twerking dance crew. In another scene, she tries to seduce a man, who is a family member, to get out of trouble for stealing his mobile phone.
Netflix exacerbated the issue when Cuties was added to streaming. "Brody's review comes to a close by stating, "'Cuties' dramatizes what people of color and immigrants endure as a result of isolation and ghettoization, of not being represented culturally and politically... it's enough to give a right-winger a conniption". Many users have tweeted that they cannot support any kind of child exploitation or child porn.
Her tweet, less than 12 hours old at the time of this reporting, has received more than 121,000 likes.
Regardless of the imagery and description, Netflix viewers are unhappy with the film airing at all.

Shocking clips from the Sundance film festival award winning movie hit the social network on Thursday.
Cuties director Maïmouna Doucouré claimed she discovered the sexualized poster and promotional material for the film along with the rest of the public.
"Our girls see that the more a woman is sexualised on social media, the more she's successful", she says in "Why I Made Cuties".
"I really put my heart into this film", she told Deadline.
Doucouré admitted to receiving death threats due to the Netflix marketing. They said that the film brings the problems surrounding social media rather than being about a young girl who wants to join a dance group that twerks. "It was a unusual experience".
