Senator Cruz Asks DOJ To Investigate Netflix Film

SENATOR TED CRUZ URGES DOJ TO INVESTIGATE NETFLIX FILM 'CUTIES.'

(CNN) – Senator Ted Cruz wants the Department of Justice to investigate Netflix over the film ‘Cuties.’

Cruz wants the DOJ to examine whether Netflix or the filmmakers broke federal laws against the production and distribution of child pornography.

The Senator’s office says Cruz detailed his concerns in a letter to attorney general Bill Barr.

Cruz writes in part, “The film routinely fetishizes and sexualizes these pre-adolescent girls as they perform dances simulating sexual conduct.”

He also says the film includes, “at least one scene with partial child nudity.”

Cruz isn’t alone.

Democratic congresswoman Tulsi Sabbard blasted the film on Twitter, calling it ‘child porn.’

A netflix spokesperson said in a statement obtained by variety that, “‘Cuties’ is a social commentary against the sexualization of young children.”
