The producers sat through auditions overprice over 950 little girls twerking. If that doesn’t disgust you, not much will.

Most of the creepy parents taking little Charlene to the child beauty pageant are Bible Belt Republicans.

I actually watched it a couple of days ago. Pretty decent movie with depth--something movies of late are seriously lacking.

In this way the road is being made ready for the acceptance of pedophilia as a lifestyle.

It’s getting very confusing.

How can I tell the difference between leftist pc triggered cancel culture and a right wing righteous crusade against evil?

Is there some kind of middle ground?

Isn't this just another case of the GOP hypocritically attacking a show they haven't seen, or condemning a book they haven't read? They took this page out of the evengelcal playbook back in the 70's.

Sorry. I made a mistake. It's not nearly as bad as I thought. It was only 650. /s

The Republicans who support a president who once owned a modeling agency that brought young girls to America and then illegally held their passports while exploiting them?

Those Republicans? Or is it other Republicans?

Maybe these Republicans?

Well I guess you win. Republicans support exploiting illegal aliens and Democrats support pedophilia. So let's make America great again by nominating this movie for Best Picture and rank it ahead of Shawshank Redemption and the Godfather.

The film, called "Mignonnes" in French, portrays a young, rebellious French Senegalese girl who joins a pre-teen hip-hop dance group that is pushed into performing suggestive dances.

Yeah, so after seeing numerous videos on YouTube criticizing this movie, since I have Netflix I checked it out. I fast fowarded through most of it, but yikes! "Suggestive dances" is the understatement of the year. These girls are 11, not 17 or 18. This is blatant sexual exploitation of children.

In Washington Post op-ed, Doucoure said her film was about the objectification of women and children, and the pressure pre-teen girls feel to be pretty and sexy.

Pretty, OK. Sexy, not OK. They're 11!

She had hoped "to start a debate about the sexualization of children in society today", she said.

By literally sexualizing them to make this movie. I want to see arrests!

How despicable the sexual exploitation of young girls involved in this movie, and the actions of the makers and promoters and those who defend it.

You can bet your bottom dollar that if a conservative or religious organization produced such a movie in order to "start a debate about the sexualization of children in society today" the media and others would go nuclear.

Cancel Netflix! -And everyone else who defends or promotes this film.

Again, I thought it was a pretty decent film. How are you going to cancel me? Sounds like just more empty virtue-signalling doo doo from the hypocritical holier-than-thou crowd if you ask me.

11-year-old girls doing sexual dancing and being sexually exploited is pretty decent, eh?

Thankfully you're in the minority on that.

This guy's video sums up Cuties pretty well -

That’s the point entirely.

That’s not what Joe said, he said it was a decent film.

Demands arrests over the shocking content, then in the next post links to YouTube share it. Hmmmm...that’s a head scratcher.

It’s not a “republican onslaught,” but general disgust over the sexualization of children. I suppose Roman Polanski is one of the signatories on the petition?

add a few more names and organizations to the list of those who defend child pornography and pedophilia.

Jimmy Savile will soon have a lot more company where he currently resides..
