He said that it is very unfortunate that children are being made sexually attractive in a show called ‘Cuties’ which is being shown on Netflix.
The actor also shared a link to an online complaint petition seeking cancellation of the show. “Cancel Cuties on Netflix! – Sign the Petition!” he added.

‘Cuties’, the film is a 2020 coming-of-age comedy-drama, written and directed by Maïmouna Doucouré as her directorial debut. It follows the story of Amy, an 11-year-old girl who defies her ‘conservative’ family when she “becomes aware of her burgeoning sexuality,” according to the film’s description.
Earlier, Netflix had chosen an image showing the four young stars posing in tight costumes baring their legs and midriffs to promote the upcoming film.
Twitteratis have signed a petition demanding the removal of the film altogether from the platform. Many described it as ‘disgusting’ and ‘for the viewing pleasure of pedophiles’.
Netflix only apologized for the promotional poster and said they’d replace it. “We´re deeply sorry for the inappropriate artwork that we used for Mignonnes/Cuties. It was not OK, nor was it representative of this French film which won an award at Sundance. We´ve now updated the pictures and description,” Netflix wrote on Twitter on August 20.
