    Netflix U.S. Subscription Cancellations Surge Nearly Eightfold Amid Cuties Child Porn

    Netflix has reportedly seen a surge in U.S. subscription cancellations following the controversy over the movie Cuties, which has generated a firestorm over its highly sexualized depiction of underage girls.

    Variety cited a study from a data firm called YipItData that found that on Saturday, Netflixs cancellation rate in the U.S. jumped to nearly eight times higher than the average daily levels recorded in August. The firm noted that Netflix subscriber churn rates or cancellations began to rise on Thursday, which is when the hashtag #CancelNetflix reached the top-trending spot on Twitter.

    Netflix doesnt release subscriber cancellation data and so the YipItData study is based on estimates and other secondary methods of divining Netflixs internal figures.

    YipItData didnt provide estimates on the actual number of customers who have canceled, according to Variety.

    Netflix reported that it had 193 million paying subscribers worldwide at the end of the second quarter in June.

    Cuties continues to be a lightening rod for Netflix as the controversy draws scrutiny from a growing number of politicians. Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) is among the Republican lawmakers calling on the U.S. Department of Justice to open a criminal investigation into Netflix for what Cotton called peddling child pornography.

    Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) has condemned Cuties as child porn, saying that Netflix is complicit in encouraging pedophiles and helping to fuel the child sex trafficking trade.

    Netflix is standing by its decision to release the French movie, arguing that the film is actually a social commentary against the sexualization of children. Not buying it, Sen. Cotton tweeted Tuesday that protecting children should take precedence over art.

    We all have a duty to protect the children under our care, the senator tweeted. When adults fail in that duty, young lives are harmed, predators are emboldened, and society itself is coarsened as a consequence. No art or social commentary can justify such a moral outrage.

    Netflix CEO Reed Hastings has appeared on CNN twice in less than a week. The left-wing network has ignored the firestorm over the movie Cuties while interviewing Hastings.

    Uptight, irrational Americans are not going to affect an international public company worth nearly $200 billion.

    They will definitely not cause Netflix to go under but I am sure that they notice . People are not trying to affect the business they are just choosing who to spend their money with .

    if this was true the media and sports would not cater towards 13% of the population, or even democratic politicians for that matter

    I am under no delusion that Im hurting Netflix financially by cancelling my account. Also, Im neither uptight nor am I irrational. I am however a believer in my Netflix subscription dollars are equivalent to 1 vote. I voted against them. End of story. Whats uptight and irrational about that?

    It sounds like you are you painting everyone with a broad stroke of the brush?
    if you are, is that not an irrational and uptight thought process?

    Why don't people seem to have a problem with this shit, it is not a movie it is real life and it has been going on for decades?

    I despise that as well, imo, its another form of child abuse. Its probable that those kids are being abused in other ways as well.


    Im not sure I understand where youre going with this question ? I mean are you currently or have you ever taken steps to prevent this? If so, what?

    Will you answer my question from my previous post?

    I find it irrational for people to be upset about a fictitious movie, and even more so when they have not even watched it before getting so upset and forming an opinion of what the movie is actually about.

    My point of posting the videos of child beauty pageants is where is all of the public outrage from the same people that are upset about a fictitious movie?

    I halfway understand where the head jew is coming from but this is a strange hill to die on. I find child beauty pageants disgusting as do most rational adults. I also chose to cancel my netflix subscription because capitalism is the purest form of democracy and it's a consumer's responsibility to be conscious of who and what their dollars support.

    I just like to play devil's advocate and get people thinking. Of course I do not condone any form of pedophilia or child abuse.
