Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Theblaze.com: “Report: Netflix cancellations 'skyrocket' after boycott campaign over 'Cuties' documentary”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Netflix triggered widespread outrage last month when the streaming platform debuted "Cuties," a documentary that critics claimed hyper-sexualized pre-adolescent girls.

The warning read, "During one of the many highly sexualized & erotic dance scenes that purposefully exploit & objectify numerous scantily clad under age [sic] girls, one of the female child dancers lifts up her cropped top to fully display her bare breast.
