Four state attorneys general are calling on Netflix to remove “Cuties” from the streaming service, saying the controversial film sexualizes young girls.

In a joint letter sent Monday, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost, Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry and Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton urged Netflix CEO Reed Hastings to pull the movie, saying “Cuties” is “fodder for those with criminal imaginations, serving to normalize the view that children are sexual beings.”

“It whets the appetites of those who wish to harm our children in the most unimaginable ways,” the letter adds.

The AGs note that although “Cuties” director Maïmouna Doucouré intended to combat child sexualization rather than promote it, the film “does more harm than good.”

Earlier Monday, U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Fla., criticized the film as he introduced legislation in Congress to ban the sale of childlike sex dolls.

“A film that shows girls as young as 11 engaging in highly sexualized dance routines is inappropriate,” Buchanan said in a news release. “I support artistic expression in film but this is exploitative, dangerous and borders on child pornography.”
